SCOTUS Reax from NFIB, Plaintiff in the case


Karen Harned, executive director of the NFIB (National Federation of Independent Business) Small Business Legal Center:

“It was a great day for small businesses.  Bottom line is that there was healthy skepticism on the part of most, if not all, of the justices on whether or not the Anti Injunction Act warrants challenge at this time.  We feel good about our chances of the court going to the merits of whether or not the individual mandate is constitutional. We’re looking forward to arguments tomorrow.”

Randy Barnett, Legal Counsel for NFIB, professor of law at Georgetown University:

“Most of the justices seem skeptical of the claim that the mandate and penalty are a tax. They seem ready, willing, and able to reach the merit of the commerce clause claim.”
