Somin Op-eds on Health Care Appear in New York Times and CNN Websites

Professor Ilya Somin published an op-ed on today's New York Times website as part of their online Room for Debate Forum on the Affordable Health Care Law that is currently being argued before the U.S. Supreme Court. The online debate addresses the issue of whether the court is being "thoughtful or partisan" as it addresses this historic issue. Professor Somin argues in his article that the court should "rein in" the power of the U.S. Congress by declaring the individual insurance manadate unconstitutional in order to protect individual liberty. 

In another editorial that appears on the CNN website, Professor Somin details his reasons for why he believes that the Affordable Health Care Law is unconstitutional.
