And that’s without even mentioning that (i) SCOTUS upheld President Obama’s Affordable Care Act (ii) Disparate Impact for Fair Housing was (mostly) upheld, and (iii) The government is requiring federal employees’ health insurers to offer transition-related coverage for transgender employees!!

It’s a bad week for racist, trans/homophobic, “family values” Republican politicians :)

Obamacare: May cost government 1.2 trillion by 2025 & saves countless lives.
Iraq War: Already cost us over 1.7 trillion & ended over one million lives.

Which do Republicans complain about?

The Supreme Court is expected to issue a decision in a major new lawsuit against Obamacare this June, and the health coverage for millions hangs in the balance.

This challenge to the Affordable Care Act, called King v. Burwell, came from longtime Obamacare opponents who claim that, because of a key phrase in the law, the federal government may provide tax credit subsidies only in states that operate their own health insurance exchanges. Thirty-four states declined to establish these marketplaces, and instead left that responsibility in the hands of the federal government.

If the Supreme Court rules for the plaintiffs in this case, it would eliminate health insurance subsidies for 7.5 million low- and moderate-income people in those states, causing most of them to become uninsured when their premiums become unaffordable without financial assistance.
