Supreme Court Agrees To Review Constitutionality Of Obamacare

The United States Supreme Court has agreed to review one of the most controversial pieces of legislation in the past quarter-century after a group of states questioned the constitutionality of Obamacare, known as the Affordable Care Act.

Texas and a number of other states are, according to Fox News, seeking judicial review of Obamacare arguing that there is “no longer a legal justification for it.”

“The law, commonly known as ObamaCare, was first upheld by the Supreme Court under the justification that by tying the individual mandate to a financial penalty it fell under Congress’ taxation power,” reports Fox News. “When President Trump eliminated the penalty, Republican-led states claimed there was no longer a legal basis for the mandate.”

A group of Democratic led states appealed a lower court’s decision that found Obamacare was unconstitutional. This will be the third time the Supreme Court has heard issues related to Obamacare since it was passed in 2010.

The Trump administration has been vocal in its support of the complete repeal of the law.

“The DEDUCTIBLE which comes with ObamaCare is so high that it is practically not even useable!,” Trump has tweeted. “Hurts families badly. We have a chance, working with the Democrats, to deliver great HealthCare! A confirming Supreme Court Decision will lead to GREAT HealthCare results for Americans!”

It is unlikely the Supreme Court rules on the case before the 2020 election.
