U.S. Supreme Court Upholds the ACA


The nation's highest court has upheld the ACA three times.

The U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling this morning upholding the ACA.

The Associated Press reported that the justices, in a 7-2 vote, ruled that Texas, other Republican-led states and individuals didn’t have a right to bring their suit in federal court.

This is the third time that the Supreme Court has heard a legal challenge to the 2010 law and left the law intact

The court ruling did not take up the larger issues in the case, California v. Texas, and the question of whether one provision was legally "severable" from the rest of the sprawling healthcare legislation.

Instead, the justices decided that the plaintiffs lacked standing to bring a constitutional challenge.

Justice Stephen Breyer wrote the majority opinion, which was joined by two Trump-appointed justices, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett. Justice Samuel Alito wrote a dissenting opinion, which was joined by Justice Neil Gorsuch.

"After numerous legal challenges and efforts to repeal it, the ACA stands and is as popular as it has ever been," tweeted Larry Levitt, executive vice president for health policy for the Kaiser Family Foundation.
