  • Supreme Court Upholds Affordable Care Act

    The Supreme Court of the United States has upheld the Affordable Care Act. The individual mandate for Americans to buy health insurance has been ruled constitutional, though not under the power of Congress to regulate commerce between the states. A majority of justices ruled that the penalty an individual would pay if he or she refused to purchase insurance falls under the power of Congress to tax. The provision to expand Medicaid through connecting all Medicaid funding to states to the increase of eligibility to 133% of the Federal Poverty Level was not supported.
