Dole Institute to Host Program on Health Care Law

Constitution Day is an annual event that commemorates the signing of the U-S Constitution on September 17th. Events focusing on the Constitution are held in the weeks surrounding this day in schools and communities nationwide. The Dole Institute of Politics will hold its Constitution Day program this (THUR) evening, as noted attorneys Gregory Katsas (KAT-suss) and Catherine Stetson debate the constitutionality of the new Federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Barbara Ballard is the Dole Institute's Associate Director. She says the debate will not address the philosophical pros and cons of the law, but will focus on the law's requirement that all Americans acquire health insurance, and whether Congress can require citizens to purchase a service.

Both Katsas and Stetson have argued before the U-S Supreme Court and are experts in constitutional law. The program begins at 7:30 tonight (THUR) at the Dole Institute on the University of Kansas West Campus. Admission is free.
