The Supreme Court is considering the possible repeal of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. The key issue involves whether mandating insurance is constitutional since there’s no longer a penalty for not buying it. That was known as the individual mandate, which was repealed by the Republican-led House and Senate in 2017.
If the court strikes down Obamacare, it would end health insurance coverage for more than 20-million Americans. Protections for people with pre-existing conditions would also disappear. The landmark healthcare law is ten-years-old.
