SCOTUS orders re-examination of Obamacare
This week, the Supreme Court has ordered the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals to look at a specific objection to the President’s health care law. The objection, brought by Liberty University, was rejected last year. From Politico:
The Supreme Court on Monday ordered the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals to examine the constitutionality of the health care reform law’s employer requirements and mandatory coverage of contraceptives without a co-pay.
The move could open the door for President Barack Obama’s health law to be back in front of the Supreme Court late next year. But legal experts say there’s no guarantee that the justices would actually take the case — or that they’d strike down those pieces of the law if they did.
The article notes that the Obama Administration’s lawyers didn’t oppose the case moving forward, and Liberty’s case may or may not be significant in the long run. However, hope springs eternal, so Tea Party Patriots will keep an eye as this develops and report on what takes place.
