Will the Supreme Court Split the Difference on Health Care and Immigration?
Last November, the U.S. Supreme Court announced it would hear one of many lawsuits by conservative officials challenging the new federal health care reform law championed by President Obama. At the time, you will recall, very few observers thought there was a serious chance that the high court would invalidate the legislation.
I was among them -- until three weeks later, when the Supreme Court announced it would hear the federal government's challenge to Arizona's immigration law, which bars illegal immigrants from trying to get a job and gives state cops the power to arrest people suspected of being illegal immigrants. The Obama Administration argues the Arizona law interferes with federal authority to control the nation's borders.
