What the SCOTUS Ruling on the Affordable Care Act Means

No law in recent history has been the subject of the kind of sustained assault that the Affordable Care Act has endured. Congressional Republicans have voted more than 50 times to repeal it, and two legal challenges reached the Supreme Court, including one that was turned back Thursday by a broad coalition of the justices. The ruling had to do with whether the law permits the federally run exchanges operating in several states.  

Detroit Today Host Stephen Henderson discusses what the ruling means with Lance Gable, the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Associate Professor of Law at Wayne State University Law School. He is also joined by Laura Appel, Senior Vice President of Strategic Initiatives for the Michigan Hospitals Association.  And callers weigh in.
