Groundhog Day SCOTUS Examination of the ACA
In 2010, Congress enacted The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, 42 U.S.C. § 18001 et seq. (2010). Controversial from its inception, the ACA (aka “Obama Care”) has been met with both support and disdain. Proponents of the ACA laud the act for increasing health insurance coverage for millions of Americans, while simultaneously lowering healthcare costs. Opponents criticize the act as too far-reaching and even unconstitutional. Unsurprisingly, the act has made its way to the highest court and it appears it is on track to do so again.
