BREAKING: Exclusive Video of Solicitor General’s Opening Argument

Here at Reel Change, we’re thrilled to present to you this exclusive video of Solicitor General Donald Verrilli making his  opening statement in support of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) at the U.S. Supreme Court. Verrilli’s performance during the second day of oral arguments was widely panned, and some are suggesting that his lack of poise and preparedness could mean doom for the individual mandate, the centerpiece of the ACA. I think you will see from this exclusive footage that those fears are well-founded.

As you know, arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court are not televised, and no recording equipment is allowed into the building, but we have been able to obtain this secretly-filmed footage through an anonymous source. NO ONE ELSE HAS THIS FOOTAGE!


When you are done, listen to the official audio clip here.

  1. Great choice for comparison and illumination. And in the right sequence. Austin Pendelton’s painful opening statement makes Verrilli’s even more astounding, confusing the line of demarcation between art and reality even further, yet again. Good one.
