An estimated 20 million people might lose their health insurance. Insurers would once again be able to deny coverage to people with preexisting health conditions.

But Trump and his followers will celebrate because it isn't about healthcare, it's about undoing everything the black guy did.

Of all the legal challenges to the ACA, this is easily the most poorly reasoned one. This case matters because any judge that sides with the plaintiffs is outing themselves as a political operative.

"At this point, a court decision striking down the system "would upend all of those settled expectations and throw healthcare markets, and 1/5 of the economy, into chaos," added the brief."

Hmmm, I guess what some of us have been saying about ACA making more more rich people richer, and what Liberals have been denying...is actually true. Go figure. The same people you hate, rich people, are the same ones ACA helped create. Doesn't it suck when your foresight is so inadequate?

"The law's defenders reply that Congress clearly did not intend for this to be the case. It voted to reduce the penalty to zero but not to eliminate the law entirely."

Haha, this is so awesome. Intent, what Liberals cling to when arguing every social problem they wrongfully argue, is now being used by them to defend a Liberal mandate. So Congress created a penalty but their intent was to not have a penalty? That probably actually makes sense to Liberals who just have hate in their hearts.

Speaking of hate...

"But Trump and his followers will celebrate because it isn't about healthcare, it's about undoing everything the black guy did."

Awww, more racism on DR. It's amazing how much Liberal DR people hate black people. They single them out every single day in the comments it seems. It's as if they don't want them to be treated the same as everyone else, which is sad...but I guess harkens back to their Civil War days. History always repeats itself.

Congress had the entire law in front of them. They chose only to repeal the penalty. They specifically voted not to repeal the entire thing. This isn't about surmising intent, it's about looking at the facts, something Trumptards are increasingly unable to do.

"Awww, more racism on DR."

Then why not fix the ACA so it works better?

Why repeal it when you have nothing to replace it with?

Why? Because of the racist rhetoric of the President before and during his campaign.

He HAS to keep saying the ACA is a bad deal just like now HAS to keep saying the Iranian deal was a bad deal (The Worst Deal Ever!!!).

Even though he cannot come up with a better deal for either situation.

History never repeats itself but it rhymes.

What a strange way to read this statement. This is about pricing of insurance, not the stock market. When the legal landscape changes so drastically and without warning, the models used to price insurance become invalid. This would drastically change how insurance companies can price their plans and what plans are legal versus not. Insurance companies tend to plan more than a few months in advance, and this will result in a scramble to readjust their pricing. Once done, those companies will still make money. It isn't like they weren't making money hand over fist prior to the ACA. In fact, without the ACA in place, they will be able to go back to providing plans that provided virtually no protection and increase the percentage of a premium that go towards profit and "overhead".

I'm glad Paul Ryan is back on the scene to roll out his replacement plan he talked about so often while Speaker of the House. Now we can all see his brilliance AND he can achieve rapprochement with his friend, Der Dotard. Let the ACA be repealed -- something better is right around the corner. Right? Right?
