March Monday Truthseekers! Mike is in route to Washington DC today so he can bring you two days of interviews from lawmakers and policy makers about the upcoming Supreme Court decision that could descimate the Affordable Care Act. HEre’s some background on the issue from politico.com:
The Obama administration says it has no contingency plan for the 7 million to 8 million people who would lose health subsidies if the Supreme Court were to invalidate a key provision of Obamacare.
On Wednesday, the high court will hear arguments in King v. Burwell, a case that will determine whether the health law’s premium subsidies are legal in 34 states that did not set up their own insurance exchanges and rely on HealthCare.gov to enroll their residents. If the court decides they’re not, an estimated 7 million to 8 million people would be cut off. The cost of insurance would rise sharply and millions could end up uninsured. It would unravel much of the president’s signature domestic achievement.
