Yesterday, in a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare), ending the King Vs. Burwell lawsuit. Obamacare will change the way we get our healthcare by including required insurance coverage, tax subsidies to lessen the cost, and affordable insurance regardless of anyone’s health and/or money issues.
The reason this lawsuit came about is the confusing language of the act, it suggests only a state marketplace plan can lead to tax credits. The exact words of Obamacare read, “an Exchange established by the State under [42 U. S. C. §18031],” but the lawsuit decided to point out what exactly the “State” meant.: “Today’s decision is a victory for every hardworking American. Access to quality, affordable is a right, not a privilege,” he said.
After the decision was made, a happy President Obama said:
“Today’s decision is a victory for every hardworking American. Access to quality, affordable health care is a right, not a privilege”
In other news, Obama is heading to Charleston today to deliver a eulogy at the funeral for the beloved pastor and state senator Rev. Clementa Pinckney. To join him on this trip will be his wife Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill. Several members of Congress are also supposed to attend, along with Hillary Clinton, who is running for President.
After the funeral service the president is going to meet privately with the families of other victims. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said:
“The president will be mindful of not just how sad it is that those individuals were taken from us, but also use the occasion to celebrate their lives.”
