Explore PBS’s Supreme Court Watch website (http://www.pbs.org/newshour/news/supreme-court/ (Links to an external site.)). This site has good information both on the Supreme Court and recent cases.
Debate with your classmates whether the Supreme Court is the appropriate institution to resolve the issues of healthcare.
Should important societal issues be determined by the courts (and thus unelected judges) or Congress?
Do you believe the courts (not worried about public opinion and only interpreting the law) or Congress (concerned about public opinion as that is how they get and keep their positions) would be more likely to make more fair decisions?
Is healthcare issues be left to the states?
Please support or explain your viewpoint and feel free to give examples as well.
