Severability Amicus Brief
Amici Curiae are 103 economists who have studied, researched, and participated in the national policy discussion relating to the healthcare markets. Amici include Nobel laureates, former senior government officials, and faculty from research universities around the country. Amici support the need for reform but believe that the Affordable Care Act (“ACA” or the “Act”) will likely exacerbate, rather than constrain, the inflation in healthcare costs that poses a serious long-term challenge to the U.S. economy.
