On Friday I gave a talk about the challenge to the Affordable Care Act at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan (home of Derek Jeter!) at the Medical Humanities Conference. Most of the people in attendance were not lawyers–mostly medical students, medical ethicists, philosophers, and other students of the humanities. My talk was simplified a bit to explain a number of terms, and I didn’t go into nearly enough depth about the differences between penalties and taxes and the like, though I think it went over well.
The conference was running a bit late, so I had to bide some time at the beginning (you can hear me bantering with the crowd about my Op-Eds I drafted before the case that were utterly useless once the opinion came down, and about broccoli).
Fast-forward to 9:50 to hear me start.
