ABSTRACT
The article delves into the apprehension resulting from a federal appeals court decision in favor of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The decision, which was just the first on numerous objections filed against the act, rejected the plaintiffs' usual opinion that Congress is incapable of forcing people to buy insurance and that the law illegitimately attempts to regulate interstate commerce.
