WILL THE SUPREME COURT ELIMINATE OBAMACARE?
In a dramatic election-year request, the Trump administration Thursday night asked the Supreme Court to strike down the entirety of the Obamacare law, saying it wrongly limits consumer choices, raises Americans costs and violates the Constitution.
In a closely-watched filing, the Justice Department told the justices that the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate violated the Constitution, and if that provision is struck down, the rest of the law must be terminated. . . .
In identifying harm to American consumers, the DOJ cited two of the law’s least popular impacts among critics: rising costs and fewer insurance choices. . . .
The filing, as expected, lays out President Trump’s arguments against the law as he heads into a fall election against Joe Biden. Democrats immediately expressed dismay at the course chosen by the administration, saying striking down the law would cost up to 20 million Americans their insurance in the middle of a pandemic.
