The relevance of this piece is that it is addressing the constitutionality of having health care, which is what the court topic is centered on. This source was written recently and given that it comes from The New England Journal of Medicine, who prides itself on being reliable and produces high-quality works, it would appear that it is dependable. Also Jack M. Balkin, who wrote the article, has a Ph.

Also this resource was written by Erwin Chemerinsky who is a law professor and has been said to be a scholar in United States constitutional law. Given his background, the article would appear to be a dependable resource on the constitutionality of the health care bill. There is an obvious bias in this article that maintains that the health care bill is constitutional. Although there is partiality, the resource backs up its defense with factual evidence and the overall quality of the piece is well done and successfully written.
