Hour 1

As the arguments come to a close in Department of Health and Human Services v. Florida, the challenge to President Barack Obama’s health care reform being heard by the U.S. Supreme Court, we pick the brains of three smart analysts whose fields will be prominently affected by the ruling. Dr. DAVID NASH is the Founding Dean and the Dr. Raymond C. and Doris N. Grandon Professor of Health Policy at the Jefferson School of Population Health of Thomas Jefferson University. TED RUGER is a law professor at the University of Pennsylvania Law School who specializes in American constitutional law and health law. And DICK POLMAN is a national political columnist and blogger who writes the “National Interest” blog for WHYY’s NewsWorks website.
