Supreme Court Schedules Health Care Cases

The Supreme Court announced Monday that it will hear a series of cases regarding President Obama's signature health care law between March 26-28.

Four hearings are scheduled on different aspects of the law.

March 26th – Anti-Injunction Act issue (1 hr) 10am March 27th – Individual Mandate (2 hrs) 10am March 28th – Severability (90 mins) 10am; Medicaid issue (1 hr) 1pm

Speaking to Fox News Radio, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who spurred the 26-state lawsuit, said the amount of time dedicated to arguments indicates how seriously the high court takes the constitutional questions pertaining to the law.

"It can be seen as an idiosyncratic type of a case but their designation of five and a half hours over three days tells me they know just how serious this constitutional challenge is and that they’re going to deal with it accordingly by granting so much time," he said.

"This is historically unique and I think deservedly so. I think this is one of the most important constitutional questions we've seen in our lifetimes."
