Should the Supreme Court allow live television coverage during health law proceedings?

The court this week agreed to hear the case, with oral arguments by March 2012.

In a Nov. 15 letter to Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts asking for live television coverage of the proceedings, U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley writes that "the decision in this case has the potential to reach every American," and will "reverberate throughout the American economy."

"Providing live audio and video coverage of the oral arguments will be of great benefit to the Court and to the public," Grassley writes. "Letting the world watch these historic and important proceedings will bolster confidence in our judicial system and the decisions of the Court."

This program aired on November 17, 2011. The audio for this program is not available.
