Coakley to defend health law in debate

Continue reading below

Attorney General Martha Coakley is heading to Washington to make a case for the national health care law that was modeled after the 2006 Massachusetts health care law. On Thursday, Coakley will defend the constitutionality of the national law at a National Press Club event called “The Affordable Health Care Act: Constitutional or Not?’’ Coakley will explain why the results in Massachusetts show that Congress had a constitutional basis to enact health care overhaul, including the so-called individual mandate. Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli will offer an opposing view. (AP)
