Affordable Care Act Heads to Supreme Court

Affordable Care Act Heads to Supreme Court

(NewsReady.com) – The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) will hear a motion challenging the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for the third time. At the heart of the issue is ending the law in entirety. However, arguments won’t be heard until the court’s next term starting in October. This means there’s a real possibility it may not be heard before the 2020 elections.

Not everyone is happy about the ACA potentially coming to an end.

The House and some Democrat-majority states asked the SCOTUS to review a decision made by the Fifth Circuit US Court of Appeals. The lower court’s ruling calls for the entirety of the ACA to be done away with. This is in stark contrast to eliminating only the health care mandate that was challenged previously.

This new challenge could make a big difference to a lot of people, so we’ll keep an eye on the case and let you know when it comes before the court.
