The Dems suffered a huge setback in the Supreme Court that is good news for President Trump. The nation’s highest court agreed to take up the challenge to Obamacare’s individual mandate, but will not do so in the expedited manned Pelosi and the House Democrats demanded.
Instead, they will hear the case in the October term meaning any decision will come after the 2020 election.
The Dems wanted to make this a big campaign issue and were probably hoping that the court would rule against them throwing the health care market into chaos right before the 2020 election as health care is a winning message for them.
It’s clear that Mitch McConnell and other GOP leaders are doing President Trump no favors with how they have handled Obamacare.
The facts are not that complicated – some of Obamacare provisions like protecting pre-existing conditions and not overcharging middle-aged people before they are eligible for Medicare should stay as Trump has said.
Bit Obamacare did nothing to stop the rising cost of healthcare – those costs far outpace inflation – and that is the reason the system teeters on the edge.
We must come together to solve the pricing issue and thankfully the Supreme Court will not allow the Dems to politicize this issue in 2020.
NBC reported that the Supreme Court said Monday that it will take up a legal challenge to Obamacare, agreeing to hear the case in its new term that begins in October. That means the program will continue for at least another year.
It also means the justices won’t be handing down a ruling on the contentious issue of health care this June, just as the presidential campaign heats up. That may be good news for the GOP, who would prefer to avoid the issue in an election year.
