U.S Supreme Court Begged By Dem To Save Obamacare,
The Democratic-controlled House and 20 Democratic-led states plead to the Supreme Court on Friday, to declare that the landmark Obamacare healthcare law does not violate the U.S. Constitution, as lower courts have found in a lawsuit brought by Republican-led states.
According to OANN, the House and the states, including New York and California, want the Supreme Court to hear their appeals of a Dec. 18 ruling by the New Orleans-based 5th U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals that deemed the 2010 law’s “individual mandate” that required people to obtain health insurance unconstitutional.

The petitions asked the Supreme Court, which has a 5-4 conservative majority, to hear the case quickly and issue a definitive ruling on the law, formally called the Affordable Care Act, by the end of June.
Texas and 17 other conservative states – backed by President Donald Trump’s administration – filed a lawsuit challenging the law,
which was signed by Democratic former President Barack Obama in 2010 over strenuous Republican opposition.
A district court judge in Texas in 2018 found the entire law unconstitutional.
Also “The Affordable Care Act has been the law of the land for a decade now and despite efforts by President Trump, his administration and congressional Republicans to take us backwards,
we will not strip health coverage away from millions of Americans,” New York Attorney General Letitia James said.
Obamacare, considered Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement, has helped roughly 20 million Americans obtain medical insurance either through government programs
or through policies from private insurers made available in Obamacare marketplaces. Republican opponents have called it an unwarranted government intervention in health insurance markets
