In Health Care Appeal, Federal Judges Question the Mandate
A federal appellate court in Atlanta raised red flags for the administration's signature health reform law Wednesday, questioning the government's ability to require people to buy health insurance.

Wednesday's hearing was the third time in the past two months that federal appellate courts have considered a constitutional challenge to the health care law. It is arguably the highest profile case, with 26 states challenging the federal law. The case is widely expected to reach the Supreme Court.
