West Virginia Metro News – A federal appeals court on Wednesday struck down the individual mandate of former President Barack Obama’s health care law. Read/listen.
Judges, however, also punted questions about the rest of the law to a district judge who previously ruled “Obamacare” as unconstitutional.
The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ 2-1 ruling prolongs answers about the future of “Obamacare” and health insurance coverage for around 20 million people.
The legal challenge goes back to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017; one of the law’s provisions zeroed out the requirement for purchasing insurance coverage.
