(Gateway Pundit) Obama's corrupt Attorney General and other Dems lashed out at the Texas federal judge for ruling Obamacare unconstitutional and demanded "Medicare for all".
The landmark health care law does remain in effect for now, despite a ruling Friday in Texas that said that its individual coverage mandate is unconstitutional and that the rest of the law therefore can not stand.
"We expect the withdrawal of federal funding flows would have an incrementally negative impact on regional economies, which are already poised to see economic deceleration as the effects of the fiscal stimulus from the tax cuts begins to fade", S&P said. There's nearly no chance this ruling holds. The law could now be headed to the top court for the third time. The court did not issue an injunction, and the Trump administration has asserted that it will continue to enforce the terms of the ACA pending appeal, notwithstanding its vocal opposition to the law. Hurts families badly. We have a chance, working with the Democrats, to deliver great HealthCare! Lawmakers are also anxious about the potential political fallout of disrupting the health care law that polls show is popular with many Americans. "Pending the appeal process, the law remains in place".
Judge O'Connor agreed. He said further that the law and its mandate could not be separated, and with this key part missing, the whole law should collapse, like a pillar of blocks in the game Jenga.
If the court were to overturn the law, it would leave the Trump administration and a divided Congress in a remarkably hard situation - scrambling to come up with an alternative that has eluded the law's critics in Washington ever since its passage in 2010.
The Supreme Court upheld ObamaCare's individual mandate requiring individuals to purchase health insurance in 2012.
Becerra noted that the federal government shares the understanding that the Affordable Care Act remains in place for now but that a court order is necessary in order to avoid any potential confusion among the millions of individuals currently depending upon the law. But numerous Republicans, both during the debate on the vote on the tax law and since, have made it clear that was not what they did. The sprawling law includes not only health insurance exchanges and an expansion of Medicaid, but also protections for people with pre-existing conditions, requirements for what insurance must cover and much more.
Still, Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who is expected to become House speaker in January, vowed to fight what she called an "absurd ruling".
The President tweeted on Friday: "Congress must pass a STRONG law that provides GREAT healthcare and protects pre-existing conditions".
Twenty states, including Texas, filed a case claiming that without the penalty, the mandate can no longer be upheld as a tax. But with that "tax" - or penalty - having been removed starting next year, Republicans challenging the law in this case argued the program is now illegal.
