For eight years, President Obama worked overtime to transform America.
It was a transformation, you can say, that many Americans disagreed with.
Even Democrats admit Trump hass undone most of Obama’s “legacy.” But one massive piece still remains.
Trump tried to get Congress to eliminate it. But the Republican-majority (back in 2017) was unwilling to do it.
So, where Congress failed, the Supreme Court might succeed.
From Fox News:
The U.S. Supreme Court announced Monday that it will review a challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s constitutionality after a group of states led by Texas claimed that there is no longer a legal justification for it…
“The individual mandate is unconstitutional because it can no longer be read as a tax, and there is no other constitutional provision that justifies this exercise of congressional power,” the ruling said.
This is pretty significant. The Supreme Court will review a challenge to Obamacare.
Conservative states lead by Texas say the program is no longer Constitutional. That’s because Trump got rid of the individual mandate penalty.
President Trump scored a big win by repealing the penalty that hurt so many Americans. Under Obamacare, if you didn’t have health insurance, the government punished you!
Ironic, since the program was supposed to make health insurance affordable. Instead, it seemed to go after Americans.
Trump’s tax cut bill from 2017 got rid of the penalty. Which means the individual mandate—along with the rest of the program—no longer has any teeth.
Texas led the way in a lawsuit to get rid of Obamacare, altogether. Democrat states fought back.
Not because Obamacare is so great, mind you. I suspect Democrats are fighting to protect it, just to protect Obama’s reputation.
After all, if we get rid of Obamacare—or worse the Supreme Court rules its un-Constitutional—what does Obama have left?
It would be as if his eight years never happened. Can you imagine what Democrats would do to prevent that?
We might be seeing that day come very soon. Trump’s Supreme Court has a conservative majority.
How do you think justices like Thomas, Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh will vote?
SHARE if you want the Supreme Court to knock down Obamacare once and for all!
