Supreme Court to Hear Oral Arguments in Affordable Care Act Dispute – Texas v. California
U.S. Supreme Court justices will hear oral arguments today in what’s become a highly contentious dispute over the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, between groups from both red and blue states in an election year.
At issue will be the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate, which was a major political flashpoint during the recent confirmation hearings of new justice Amy Coney Barrett.
Barrett is now seated on the court and will hear arguments in this landmark case.
The case is not expected to be decided until at least June of next year, but could have an effect on the upcoming U.S. Senate races in Georgia scheduled for run-off elections on January 5th.
Live audio of the oral arguments in the case, known as Texas v. California, will be streamed. Watch:
