Supreme Court To Decide What Will Happen With Obamacare; Will Make Healthcare An Issue In The Election

Published

The Supreme Court is set to hear a case that could have major implications for the fate of Obamacare, possibly leading to it being tossed in the waste basket and turn healthcare into a major campaign issue.

The decision to hear the case was announced on Monday.

Here’s more on this from the Washington Examiner:

Trending: Pro-Trump Lawyer Drops Huge ‘Q’ Hint, Crowd Goes Wild

The decision to take up the case, announced on Monday, before the resolution of litigation in the lower courts will give Democrats ammunition with which to attack Republicans on the issue of healthcare. President Trump has not provided a backup plan for the law, which increased the number of insured by 20 million, should it be invalidated in court.

The Trump administration, which has told courts that the entire law should be thrown out, had asked the justices not to take up the question of the constitutionality of the law until the lower courts were done litigating the matter. Trump has been focusing his healthcare rhetoric on attacking “Medicare for all,” a plan championed by Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders that would enroll everyone living in the United States into a government plan.

Democratic leadership in Congress has been squarely focused on defending Obamacare, a strategy it believes helped hand the party the House during the 2018 midterm elections. A recent Kaiser Family Foundation poll shows that the law, formally known as the Affordable Care Act, is more popular than ever, with 55% of voters viewing it favorably. Democrats have sought, in particular, to advertise the law’s rules that prohibit health insurance companies from turning away the sick or from charging them more than healthy people.

As of now, the timing for the oral arguments hasn’t been announced yet, but it could be before the election in 2020. Of course, you can bet whoever the Democratic Party nominee is will use the hearing of this case against President Trump, stating that he’s trying to pull away protections for preexisting conditions.

There would be a lot of policies that would disappear if Obamacare was thrown out, including allowing kids to stay on a parents’ plans until age 26.

Of course, Republicans would have a chance to come up with a better plan, so things could go the opposite way as well.

Manhunt Ensues After Possible Ex-Cop Commits Massacre in Texas

Authorities are telling residents to shelter in place.

The citizens of Austin, Texas are on high alert Sunday afternoon after a massacre left at least three people dead with the suspect still at large as of this writing. Law enforcement has identified the suspected killer, and are scouring the city looking for clues. A massive multi-agency manhunt including the FBI and U.S. Marshals is underway in Austin for an armed suspect wanted for killing at least three people near an apartment complex late Sunday morning. Austin police said that the three lifeless bodies were all adults, including two Hispanic females, and one Black male. They said they believe the suspect is Stephen Nicholas Broderick, who is possibly a former law enforcement officer charged with sexual assault of a child last summer. Austin’s KXAN, citing an arrest affidavit, reported last June that the Travis County Sheriff’s Office detective was on administrative leave following an arrest for allegations of sexual assault. Police had some very specific ideas of what could come next in the case. The Austin Police Department said the suspect was still at large as of approximately 2:30 p.m. local time and is considered armed and dangerous. Police have urged everyone nearby to shelter in place and report suspicious activity. “We are concerned he might possibly take a hostage and be himself sheltered somewhere waiting for us to leave,” Interim Austin Police Chief Joseph Chacon said during a news conference Sunday afternoon. Police said that the victims were known to Broderick, but did not elaborate any further.

Biden Team Sends Stern Threat to Russia Over Navalny’s Health

This is just the latest escalation in the war of words between these two nations.

Published

While every nation on this planet likely harbors some sort of terrible secret, or some evil underpinnings, no one plays the role of international bad guy quite like Russia does. The enormous nation has no real qualms about the world knowing its business, and Vladimir Putin has held onto power for as long as he as by doing the bare minimum required to keep him from being called a dictator. Beyond that, the nation appears fond of strongman-shenanigans like poisoning and jailing dissident journalists like Alexi Navalny, who is on death’s door in a Russian prison camp. If he dies, US President Joe Biden says that the Kremlin will pay the price. President Joe Biden’s national security adviser warned Sunday that there will be repercussions for Russia if Putin critic Alexei Navalny dies, amid reports that his health is rapidly deteriorating in prison. “We have communicated to the Russian government that what happens to Mr. Navalny in their custody is their responsibility and they will be held accountable by the international community,” Jake Sullivan said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Biden has had a fairly poor relationship with Russia doing his first few months in office, with the two nations issuing not-so-subtle statements and threats in each others’ direction.
