The Supreme Court took up one case that has all hell breaking loose in the election
The Supreme Court will once again play a key role in deciding the Presidential election.
But this time it’s not for the reason anyone thinks.
And that’s because the Supreme Court took up one case that has all hell breaking loose in the election.
On Monday, the Supreme Court dropped a blockbuster announcement that the court would hear arguments in a lawsuit brought by Republican State Attorneys General to overturn ObamaCare.
POLITICO reported, “The justices said they would hear the case, likely later this year, after turning down an earlier request from Democrats to fast-track a ruling by June. The decision increases pressure on President Donald Trump over health care, a top concern for voters and an issue that has benefited Democrats since the GOP’s failed effort to repeal ObamaCare during Trump’s first year in office.”
In this case, the Republican State Attorneys General argued that since the 2018 tax cut bill zeroed out the individual mandate all of ObamaCare was now null and void.
A district court judge in Texas agreed and threw out the law.
And the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals agreed that the individual mandate was unconstitutional, but kicked the question of ObamaCare standing back down to the lower court.
The Supreme Court hearing arguments on this case in the fall will mean ObamaCare is on the ballot.
If the Justices rule ObamaCare is unconstitutional then voters will have to choose between Donald Trump’s conservative approach and the Democrat nominee’s plan for a government takeover of healthcare.
Democrats believe this advantages them because party leaders claim Democrats won the 2018 midterms on the strength of their message on healthcare.
But when the Republicans ran on repealing ObamaCare in 2010, 2014, and 2016 they won overwhelming victories.
