The justices, and the public, are primarily focused on the constitutionality of the individual mandate, which would require Americans to purchase health insurance.

With his knee-jerk criticism of those attending Glenn Beck’s recent “Restoring Honor” rally, NAACP president Ben Jealous showed what his once-venerable group has become — a progressive front masquerading as a civil rights organization.
