Case Term OT 2011
Category Constitutional Law
Question Presented Does Congress exceed its enumerated powers and violate basic principles of federalism when it coerces States into accepting onerous conditions that it could not impose directly by threatening to withhold all federal funding under the single largest grant-in-aid program, or does the limitation on Congress‘s spending power that this Court recognized in South Dakota v. Dole, 483 U.S. 203 (1987), no longer apply?
Lower Court's Decision The Court of Appeals of the 11th Circuit held that the expansion of Medicaid by the ACA is constitutional. A vote to AFFIRM the 11th Circuit means that YES, the Medicaid expansion is constitutional. A vote to REVERSE means that the Medicaid expansion is unconstitutional.
