Student's op-ed wades into constitutional debate over healthcare act

Media Outlet: 


"The constitutional debate regarding the individual mandate in the Affordable Care Act has divided the country based on economic ideology. However, I find myself at odds with many of my fellow proponents of economic freedom when I tell them I have concluded the individual mandate is constitutional," wrote Sean Rust, a student at Temple's Beasley School of Law, in an op-ed. Rust argued that the Supreme Court should "restrict their ruling to the Constitution itself, rather than try to determine the economic validity of each side's claims in such a complicated market."
