Mark Schmitt (New America) and Scott Lemieux (Lawyers, Guns and Money, The American Prospect, The College of St. Rose)

On Fireside Chats, Mark and Scott talk Affordable Care Act. Has Mitt Romney got his message straight on whether the mandate is a tax or a penalty? What’s with all the leaks coming from the Supreme Court? Does the constitutionality of the law actually matter, or are the justices just partisan actors?
