Critical Day for ObamaCare as High Court Hears New Challenge

The nine justices of the Supreme Court on Wednesday will again hold the future of ObamaCare in their hands, as they take up a new legal challenge that could strip insurance subsidies from millions of people.

The court on Wednesday will hear oral arguments in the King v. Burwell case, with the plaintiffs contending that people in 37 states are illegally receiving subsidies through President Obama’s signature law.

Should the justices rule against the administration, the consequences could be lasting and dramatic.

The Obama administration says it is impossible to carry out the healthcare law without the subsidies, which were designed to help people cover the cost of health insurance.
