On May 16, the Supreme Court handed down its decision in Zubik v. Burwell, the challenge to the “Contraception Mandate” in the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Although, perhaps it’s too much to say that the Court made much of a decision.
The United States Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit handed down an opinion in favor of Dordt College and Cornerstone University and their objection to the so-called “contraceptive mandate” in the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Yesterday the Supreme Court released its opinion in King v. Burwell, the most recent challenge to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) also frequently referred to as “Obamacare.” At its heart, however, this case is about statutory interpretation, and it raises the deeply important question of whether we are a nation ruled more by law or legislature.
