Today, the Supreme Court went with the intent of the law and cemented the President's legacy: the Affordable Care Act will stand
Today, the Supreme Court handed the Obama administration a major victory on health care, ruling 6-3 that nationwide subsidies called for in the Affordable Care Act are legal.
Bloomberg Business reports:
The ruling is the high court’s second in three years to preserve Obamacare in the face of Republican-backed legal attacks. Republican opponents now must look to winning the White House in the 2016 election if they hope to roll back the law.
Justice Antonin Scalia said: "We should start calling this law SCOTUScare," an apparent reference to the fact the Supreme Court has now saved the Affordable Care Act twice.
The Affordable Care Act “is here to stay,” Obama said this morning at the White House. “What we’re not going to do is unravel what has been woven into the fabric of America. I can work with Republicans and Democrats to move forward. Let’s join together. Make health care in America even better.”
