Rob Shapiro Discusses Supreme Court Ruling Upholding Obamacare on CLTV's Politics Tonight
On CLTV's Politics Tonight, Barack Ferrazzano Partner Rob Shapiro discusses the Supreme Court's ruling to uphold the Affordable Care Act, despite a technicality in its language. In a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court upheld the federally funded subsidies that help more than six million Americans afford monthly health insurance premiums. Rob comments that despite the confusion regarding tax credits and state healthcare exchanges, statutory language naturally should follow the context or intention of the statute as a whole. Although the debate will continue, he notes Congress is not likely to have the votes to repeal Obamacare due to its reach and entrenchment in the current healthcare system.
