Obamacare Upheld By Supreme Court Ruling For a Second Time
In a 6-3 decision the US Supreme Court upheld a key portion of President Barack Obama’s healthcare law. The court ruled that the law made subsidies available for people in all 50 states and found that it did not apply just to those who bought insurance through a state exchange.
The income-based subsidies are crucial and allow health insurance to be more affordable thus reducing the number of uninsured Americans
The Affordable Care Act, often known as Obamacare, set up a federally run insurance exchange which enabled Americans who were not covered by their employers or other governmental agencies to buy health insurance.
If the law was overturned, 6.4 million Americans would have been risk of losing aid.
