Virginia's Attack on Health Care Reform Individual Mandate in PPACA Heard by Fourth Circuit

RICHMOND, Va. - (Mealey's) The federal government argued before a panel of the Fourth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on May 10 that a district court judge erred in finding that the individual mandate contained in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) is unconstitutional, while the Commonwealth of Virginia urged the court to find that the individual mandate cannot be severed from the rest of the act, so the entire thing must be declared unconstitutional (Commonwealth of Virginia v. Kathleen Sebelius, Nos. 11-1057 & 11-1058, 4th Cir.).
