The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the nationwide availability of tax subsidies that are crucial to the implementation of President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law, handing a major victory to the president.

The court ruled on a 6-3 vote that the 2010 Affordable Care Act, widely known as Obamacare, did not restrict the subsidies to states that establish their own online healthcare exchanges. It marked the second time in three years that the high court ruled against a major challenge to the law brought by conservatives seeking to gut it.

Chief Justice John Roberts was joined by fellow conservative Justice Anthony Kennedy and the courtís liberal members in the majority.

The decision means the subsidies will remain not just in the 13 states that have set up their own exchanges and the three states that have state-federal hybrid exchanges, but also in the 34 states that use the exchange run by the federal government.
. . next manufactured crisis . . .

It makes no difference what the courts rule........US health care is a joke. The subsidies go to insurance companies, and health care, for the most part, may be there but not available as the providers pick and choose what insurance they will accept. When you finally find a provider that will accept the insurance you are looking at a 3-4 month wait to be seen.......unless you want to go to the ER. At the ER you will be instructed to follow up with another doctor. My son was instructed to see a doctor asap........minimum wait was three months for the doctors that would accept his health insurance.

There seems to be no shortage of medical facilities.......I'm surrounded by them and new hospitals are being built in most small cities. Many doctors practice their trade in multiple locations and only see patients on certain days.......makes for a terrific tax write-off to maintain multiple locations.

End of rant.......

Not seeing that problem here, but it could be because Houston has such a huge Medical infrastructure . . For the most part, any Dr. accepting Medicare patients seem to be accepting ACA insurance. That and a fairly wide coverage by the major insurance companies could make it easier for Drs to join their group.

It does seem to be important that the buyer look closely at the network before joining.

This ruling was a life saver for the GOP Clown Show . . now they don't have to face the ire of 6-8 million voters who just lost Medical Insurance and pretend to have a better plan . . for 8 years now, they have claimed to have a better idea, but nothing every comes out in writing on it . .

Congress can pass another 50 or so repeals and waste millions more trying to pander to the fringe

Contrary to the rediculous statements about ACA hurting the health care industry, their stocks went up after the ruling . . Some broken system!

Yes - it's a program formulated by the insurance and pharma industries for the benefit of the insurance and pharma industry. The fact that a few million more folks get coverage was just an inconvenient necessity.

Why would confirming a law that has been in effect for 5 years cause a new tax? The medical care continues to be provided by tha same health care professionals that have been doing it for over a hundred years . . Paid by the Same Insurance Comoanies that have been covering folks for over 50 years . . How is that Government Medical Care?

More hair on fire moments...SCOTUS just ruled:

Fourteenth Amendment requires a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex.

And to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when a marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out of state.

After 5 years, what "new" tax?

The government is providing no health care . . Private Doctors do that.
