In anticipation of next week’s oral arguments, several longer advocacy pieces have been written about the Affordable Care Act. Earlier this month, Randy Barnett wrote a post at the Volokh Conspiracy in which he distinguished the challenge to the individual mandate from Gonzales v. Raich and concluded that the distinctions will be helpful to the ACA’s challengers.  Also on the offensive against the ACA, Adam J. White argues in the Weekly Standard that the Act “entails an unprecedented reformation of the very structure of federal government.”   Marty Lederman, writing at Balkinization, defends the ACA in his response to Randy Barnett.
