The hottest ticket in Washington, D.C., next week is for oral arguments over the 2010 healthcare law that begin Monday at the Supreme Court. The tickets are in tight supply, and many congressmen, at least on the Republican side, are eager to score them, Politico
The court gave a few handfuls of tickets to House and Senate leaders to dole out to members. The court refused to reveal how many tickets it gave to Congress, and congressional leaders declined to discuss how they’re giving them out.
Among those who will be attending are Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell; House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp; and House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton. House Speaker John Boehner gave tickets to Upton, Reps. Joe Pitts of Pennsylvania and Michael Burgess of Texas, top Republicans who handle healthcare issues on the Energy and Commerce Committee, House GOP sources told Politico.
It appears that Democrats aren’t as eager to attend. But Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, one of Obamacare’s principal authors, said he will be there. And so will Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa, another of the law's authors, his office said.
