Some quick reactions

I am listening now on C-SPAN radio. Here are a few, quick thoughts as General Katyal sits down:

* A very active bench.

* More skepticism about the constitutionality of the mandate than we have seen from any appellate panel thus far.

* No questions about Medicaid. Not one. Who knows for sure, but that seems like a decent indication that they are not interested in going there.

* Only about 45 seconds on the severability question.

Mr. Clement is now stepping to the dais.
