I don’t agree with Roberts on much but he’s right on this one.
from the article linked to below:
“I think it’s hard for you to argue that Congress intended the entire act to fall if the mandate was struck down when the same Congress that lowered the penalty to zero did not even try to repeal the rest of the act,” Roberts told the attorney representing Texas, one of the states fighting the law. “I think, frankly, that they wanted the court to do that, but that’s not our job,” Roberts added.
Roberts is right. Republicans are trying to get the court to repeal the ACA (Obamacare) since they failed in dozens of attempts to do it in Congress. It was passed as a law. If it is going to be repealed, it should be done the same way – by Congress.
There’s a pandemic going on
Many people are losing health insurance when they lose their joj
I can’t believe he is doing this during the biggest health crisis in the US in 100 years. He claims he’ll replace it with something better but there is no plan. That’s another of his endless lies.
Trump keeps saying he is defending health care coverage of pre-existing conditions. That’s a lie. Republicans are suing to get rid of the entire Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Trump tells endless lies. Sad!
Trump hates Obama so much he wants to get rid of the ACA even though it keeps increasing in popularity. They are fine with having millions of people lose health care. Fortunately, the public does not agree with the Republicans. This is a bad move for them (which is fine with me!)
It’s also alarming that the Justice Department is unwilling to support a law passed by Congress. Trump supporters are quick to say “elections have consequences” when we complain about their judicial picks but in this case the public elected the people who passed the ACA. The Trump administration couldn’t get Congress to overturn the ACA. The government should enforce the law.
