This dissertation considers the importance and impact of methods used to interpret and give effect to statutes, with particular analysis and critical examination of the United States Supreme Court’s interpretation of provisions in the Affordable Care Act. The author assesses whether Congress’ initial construction of the statute was effectuated, the primary role of courts in statutory interpretation and the meaning of legislative intent. He also explores the consequences of judicial revision under the separation of powers.
