The Supreme Court and Virginia Health Care

Jul 9, 2012

Wondering how the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision on health care, and the associated political fallout, might affect Virginia?

For more than 20 years legal scholar Timothy Jost has been studying health care systems, in the U.S. and around the world.

Political scholar Bob Roberts has been studying public policy and Virginia politics for about the same amount of time.

Jost and Roberts have agreed to help us figure out what to expect in Virginia, now that the Supreme Court has upheld most of the Affordable Care Act.
