Maybe now those Republicans who have made it their mission in life to subvert health care in this country will pack it in.
The latest legal challenge by Obamacare haters was stifled with a 6-3 vote in the Supreme Court.
The justices said consumers qualify for a subsidy that lowers the cost of premiums whether they buy their coverage through federal or state exchanges. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the opinion.
So, will this latest challenge be the last?
It’s hard to say. Since the inception of the Affordable Health Care Act Republicans have gone on a crusade to upend it. The moment the law was passed the GOP set their sights on trying to sabotage it.
Never mind the over six millions Americans who now have insurance where they didn’t before. There was never a groundswell movement to destroy Obamacare. It was a carefully organized attack by GOP politicians and their industry cronies.
Perhaps now the GOP will turn it’s attention to something more positive, like trying to reach more bipartisan agreements in Congress, instead of trying to hold Americans hostage to their ideologies.
One can only hope.
Time for me to walk on down the road…
