A Catastrophic Error: The Misrepresentation of the ACA's Individual Mandate in the Supreme Court

For those who've noted that, contra the 3/27 oral arguments in the Supreme Court on the constitutionality of the individual mandate in the Affordable Care Act, the ACA does in fact offer various catastrophic coverage options, an index of coverage of this issue, here and elsewhere. The first, out of sequence, is the most comprehensive statement of the plaintiffs' misrepresentation of the mandate. The rest are in chronological order, by category.

On the mandate more broadly
The individual mandate is a piece of Cake (4/25)
Verrilli's limiting principles (4/24)
If only Verrilli had said (A, B, C) (3/31)
Verrilli, slapped silly, recovers willy-nilly (3/28)
