Supreme Court Refuses to Overturn the Affordable Care Act
Following a lawsuit filed by Republican state attorneys, the US Supreme Court voted against overturning the Affordable Care Act. The 7-2 vote came after the ACA was claimed to be unconstitutional following a change made by Congress back in 2017.
This is the third occasion since the act came into law that it has survived a challenge. Thankfully, for millions of people all around the United States, they’ll get to keep their health insurance coverage. This will come as great news to many as there’s no need for them to change their health insurance carrier.
The Importance of this Decision
The decision by the Supreme Court reversed the decision of a lower court’s ruling which determined that the individual mandate aspect of Obamacare was unconstitutional. Despite making this monumental decision that saved health insurance plans for millions of Americans, the Supreme Court decided to leave the question of whether or not the law is unconstitutional and instead held that the plaintiffs have no right to bring about the lawsuit.
This decision is sure to be a relief for members of the public who rely on Obamacare and without would struggle to access the quality healthcare to which they’re entitled. President Biden expressed his joy at the decision via his official Twitter account and described the event as being a big win for the American people.
The Importance of Obamacare
Obamacare is a vital lifeline over 130 million people in the United States. People living with conditions such as cancer, diabetes, and other chronic conditions depend on their health insurance to help manage their conditions. Since the landmark law passed in 2010, it has dramatically improved the lives of millions of Americans and this recent decision ensures it will continue to do so for many years to come.
