Health Care is Complicated
Guest: Joan Altman, Director of Government Affairs & Strategic Partnerships, Washington Health Benefit Exchange
California v. Texas is a case pending before the U.S. Supreme Court that is the first major challenge to the Affordable Care Act since the appointment of the court's newest justice.

Health law expert Joan Altman '12 has been on the front lines in Washington since the law's earliest days. She sheds light on what went down at oral arguments this past November and discusses what can be inferred from the justices' commentary.
