Challenge to Obamacare gets Supreme Court review

Wednesday, December 17th, 2014

Chicago Health Care Daily reports:

“The U.S. Supreme Court agreed to consider a challenge to the subsidies that are a linchpin of President Barack Obama’s health-care overhaul, accepting a case that suddenly puts the law under a new legal cloud.

Two years after upholding much of the law by a single vote, the justices today said they will hear a Republican-backed appeal targeting tax credits that have helped more than 4 million people afford insurance.

A ruling blocking those credits might unravel the Affordable Care Act, making other provisions ineffective and potentially destabilizing insurance markets in much of the country. The high court’s decision to hear the case comes days before the start of the law’s second open-enrollment season. A decision will come by June.

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

The Washington Times reports:

“Discord over President Obama’s health care law is forging strange alliances, with top Republicans reaching out to union bosses who helped Democrats muscle the legislation through Congress three years ago but now say the reforms will “destroy the very health and well-being of our members.”

Huffpost Politics reports:

“WASHINGTON — Fewer than 34,000 Americans have signed up for a health care reform program designed to insure the uninsurable until the new law’s broader provisions take effect in 2014.

As many as 25 million Americans are uninsured and have pre-existing conditions.
