Supreme Court terminates landmark challenge to Obamacare

Former President Barack Obama left office in 2016. However, his landmark legislation that was his legacy just won’t die.

The Affordable Care Act has just withstood another Supreme Court challenge, the Washington Times reported. The ruling came Thursday and terminated another Republican effort to overturn the behemoth law.

The law has withstood many challenges since it was passed in 2010. Many conservatives were shocked when Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. ruled against repealing the individual mandate that compelled citizens to pay for health insurance.

Roberts based his decision on the assertion that the surcharge was actually a tax. Then the 2017 tax cuts set that charge at $0, and 18 conservative states said it made Obamacare unconstitutional since Roberts hinged his argument on it.

The issue ended up back in the Supreme Court with this new challenge. However, the justices ruled 7-2 that there wasn’t sufficient argument to overturn the law and ruled in favor of the 20 Democratic states instead.

“Neither the individual nor the state plaintiffs have shown that the injury they will suffer or have suffered is ‘fairly traceable’ to the ‘allegedly unlawful conduct of which they complain,’” the majority opinion written by Justice Stephen G. Breyer said. This was a surprising loss given the court’s 6-3 balance in favor of conservatives.

President Joe Biden, who was vice president at the time the law was passed, called the verdict “a major victory for all Americans benefitting from this groundbreaking and life-changing law,” he said in a statement, according to NBC News. “After more than a decade of attacks on the Affordable Care Act through the Congress and the courts, today’s decision — the third major challenge to the law that the U.S. Supreme Court has rejected — it is time move forward and keep building on this landmark law,” Biden said.

The Affordable Care Act was seen by many as the first step towards socialized medicine. The tentacles of this legislation have reached so far into the American medical system that extracting the law would be nearly impossible anyway, but even the courts are beginning to demonstrate the sad fact that this law is here to stay.

My last paycheck was $2500 for working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 8k for months now and she works about 30 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless.

After leaving my previous job 11 months ago, I’ve had some good luck to learn about this website which was a life-saver for me… They offer jobs for which people can work online from their house. My latest paycheck after working for them for 4 months was for $11600… Amazing thing about is that the only thing required is simple typing skills and access to internet.
