ObamaCare loses in federal court

But what will happen as the case makes its way up the federal courts ladder?

If Hillary Rotten Clinton is elected, she'll appoint a leftist to the court who will be friendly to ObamaCare.

From Reuters:
A U.S. judge on Thursday handed a victory to congressional Republicans who challenged President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law, ruling that his administration overstepped its constitutional powers relating to government spending.

U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer, based in Washington, ruled that the administration cannot spend billions of dollars in federal funds to provide subsidies under the law known as Obamacare to private insurers without the approval of Congress.

At issue in the case, brought by the Republican-led House of Representatives, are reimbursements to insurance companies to compensate them for reductions that the law requires them to make to customers’ out-of-pocket medical payments.

Shares in hospital operators and managed care companies were down after the ruling.

If Shrillary is elected President she will probably have at least 2 Sppreme Court appointments in her first term. NeverTrumpers need to keep that in mind when they say that Trump would be worse than Shrillary.
