Earlier today, UC Davis lawprof Vikram Amar and I were on a KQED NPR radio program discussing the individual mandate litigation. Amar believes that the Court should uphold the mandate whereas I, of course, do not. The audio is available here:
One thing I notice about these radio exchanges is that there is a tremendous advantage to whoever gets to respond to a question last. Both Amar and I were more effective when we got to respond after the other, in large part because that position allows you to rebut whatever the other person said, as well as make your own points. That said, I think we at least did a fairly good job of laying out some of the major arguments on both sides.
