On September 4, the Senate Judiciary Committee will begin hearings on the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court.  The following day a hearing will begin in the case of Texas v. Azar (explained), in which twenty states are challenging the continued validity of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) now that the “individual mandate” for people to buy insurance has been repealed. (The administration is not defending the law and is siding in part with the plaintiffs.) This timing will underscore the significant role that a new justice may play in determining the future of the ACA, since it is quite possible that this case will end up before the Supreme Court.
