Bulk of Obamacare Likely Safe in New Supreme Court Case

Summary from the AllSides News Team

The Supreme Court will likely not threaten the bulk of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, after Justices Brett Kavanaugh and John Roberts said they supported leaving the rest of the law intact if they struck down the individual mandate. The individual mandate, which a group of Republican states is arguing against in California v. Texas, refers to a fee paid if you can afford health insurance but choose not to buy it. In 2017, a GOP-led Congress lowered the individual mandate fee to $0. Some coverage on all sides discussed Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s new place in the Court’s new 6-3 conservative majority. Coverage in left-rated outlets was more likely to mention that Justices Kavanaugh and Barrett were appointed by President Donald Trump.
