The most recent Obama Health Care Law has long been a topic of conversation. In this Live from the 92nd Street Y, Noah Telbin and Jeffrey Toobin discuss the Supreme Court's interpretation of that controversial and historic piece of legislation. Feldman is particularly concerned with the Supreme Court's interest in individual liberties. Toobin serves as a wonderful host, helping listeners relate to and understand difficult legal matters. Feldman's expertise is apparent, especially his thoughts about Justice Anthony Kennedy's position on the Court.
Noah Feldman discusses the the Supreme Courts record on individual rights, particularly Justice Anthony Kennedy’s, and asks: “Can the health care bill be described as a violation of individual rights?”

Sometimes he hits dazzlingly, sometimes he misses, but the guy has a scary-swift brain that turns over all kinds of rocks, and makes rapid sharp interpretations. The effect is to get my brain firing well too. (And his work in print has that quality.) It's fun to listen to that overclocked processor in his head, wired so well to his mouth, at work. I hope he is working on a book on the contemporary Supreme Court.
