Next term, rather than this term. No decision until next year, naturally.

They want to take health care away from millions of people, but they don’t want it to be on the ballot in November.

Why do they hate America?

But, will the SCOTUS rule on the validity of health coverage for those who consume far too many cheeseburgers??

Now, now facts and figures have no sway with Republicans, it’s only sincerely held beliefs that they acknowledge as valid.:roll_eyes:

Well, by this time next year it’ll either be the end of the republic, so no need to worry about healthcare coverage during the civil war then, or President Biden will be in place and we’ll just pass new legislation.

Again and again I fondly recall the Tea Party geniuses who railed against Obamacare, but got mad as hell that people wanted to take away the Affordable Care Act.

This one aggravates me. Those should be tested rigorously.

You can’t claim to be christian, but hold “sincere beliefs” which involve discrimination like not baking a cake for your neighbor because they’re gay.

The Supreme Court will hear a third challenge to the Affordable Care Act, this time at the request of Democratic-controlled states that are fighting a lower court decision that challenged the constitutionality of the law.

Motherfkers. Excuse my French. At a time when ALL people need health insurance to fight a global pandemic, these ‘twits’ have decided it’s a good time to screw people over. Charming.

Undoubtedly, the court will find that the states lack standing to bring the suit.
