As the nation awaits the Supreme Court’s soon-to-be-announced decision on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, the National Constitution Center’s Peter Jennings Project and The Constitutional Sources Project (ConSource) present a timely program to illuminate the impact of this pivotal ruling.  Joined by other key experts, distinguished law professors Jack Balkin of Yale Law School and Randy Barnett of Georgetown Law Center will explore the decision’s real-world consequences on the Constitution and other legislation built on Commerce Clause power. This event will be moderated by award-winning journalist John Hockenberry.
