WASHINGTON, D.C. - In two sessions March 28, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments on whether, if the individual mandate contained in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care (PPACA) is found unconstitutional, it can be severed from the remainder of the act and whether the act's expansion of Medicaid is constitutional (National Federation of Independent Business v. Kathleen Sebelius, et al., No. 11-393; State of Florida, et al. v. Department of Health and Human Services, et al., No. 11-400, U.S. Sup.,) See 2011 U.S. App. LEXIS 16806.
