Above The Law: Obama health overhaul hits stumbling block
Burlington, Vermont - August 17, 2011.
A new ruling on federal health care reform sets the stage for a fight before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Last week, a federal appeals court in Atlanta struck down the requirement in President Obama's health care package which mandates that virtually all Americans must carry health insurance or face penalties.
Twenty-six states sued to block the President's requirement for mandatory health care insurance, saying it violates people's rights. A different appeals court upheld the law, and the White House says it's confident the Atlanta ruling won't stand.
Cheryl Hanna is a professor at Vermont Law School. She appeared on The :30 to discuss the new ruling on federal health care reform and how it sets the stage for a fight before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Hanna also talked about federal changes to the No Child Left Behind Program.
