Justices Grant Obamacare Case, Testing Trump’s Push to Scrap the Signature Health Law

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday agreed once again to determine the fate of the embattled Affordable Care Act in the wake of arguments from the Trump administration and a group of Republican-led states that the entire law should be thrown out….

…The U.S. House filed a separate petition in which House general counsel Douglas Letter told the justices that the Fifth Circuit’s decision is destabilizing the insurance market and hospitals’ ability to make long-term investments as well as creating uncertainty about coverage for millions of Americans and small business owners and employees. Letter is assisted by Munger, Tolles & Olson partner Donald Verrilli Jr. and Elizabeth Wydra of the Constitutional Accountability Center.
