Today’s Supreme Court oral arguments focus on the individual healthcare mandate. What happens if the mandate is ruled unconstitutional but the rest of the law is left intact?
Sarah Kliff explains:
Health-care economists use different models and algorithms to game out what would happen if the high court struck the mandate down. That’s why you see some significant differences between what different studies predict. But, in general, they all expect the same outcome: Fewer Americans would gain health insurance, and it would cost more.
