BIDEN SPEAKS AFTER SCOTUS HEARS OBAMACARE CASE: Moments ago, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in a case that could potentially overturn the Affordable Care Act. Early analysis of the oral arguments, which were made available to the public, finds that the conservative-leaning bench seems open to keeping most of the ACA intact and might only rule in favor of removing the individual mandate. Chief Justice John Roberts, who wrote the 2012 decision upholding the law, told the Texas solicitor general arguing the GOP-led case that striking down the law completely is ‘frankly… not our job,’ and added ‘I think it’s hard for you to argue that Congress intended the entire act to fall if the mandate were struck down when the same Congress that lowered the penalty to zero did not even try to repeal the rest of the act.’
President-elect Joe Biden ran his campaign on protecting and expanding the Affordable Care Act, which he himself was instrumental in passing back in 2010. If it was to be fully overturned, more than 23 million Americans would be left without care, and protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions would be stripped. He is delivering remarks on his health care plan now.
