WASHINGTON, DC – Love it or hate it, Obamacare is still with us.
This means the subsidies will remain available for people living in states with federal exchanges.
The Supremes did not agree with the argument that the wording of the act clearly prevented subsidies for people living in the 34 states, like Texas, that did not have their own healthcare marketplaces.
The Supreme Court’s decision affects more than 800,000 low- and middle-income Texans. To no surprise, the state’s Republican leaders are foursquare against it.
Gov. Greg Abbott issued a statement within minutes of the announcement that said the Court’s ruling “underscores why it is now more important than ever to ensure we elect a president who will repeal Obamacare and enact real healthcare reforms.”
Clearly, Obamacare is not for everyone, but for now, it’s there for everyone who needs it.
