Why conservatives have abandoned their principles in their attack on Obama's healthcare act.

Conservatives insist that their attack on Obama’s healthcare reform act is about the loss of fundamental liberties. But a deeper look reveals other motives. In this episode of Nation Conversations, Aziz Huq speaks with The Nation‘s Emily Douglas about their real motivations as well as the recent Supreme Court oral arguments over the Act. Check out the podcast to learn what is really at stake in these arguments and the wider debate over the Affordable Care Act, and be sure to read Huq’s recent Nation article, “Why the Affordable Care Act Does Not Put Your Freedom At Risk.”
