Supreme Court Rules in Favor of the Affordable Care Act

“Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them. If at all possible, we must interpret the Act in a way that is consistent with the former, and avoids the latter.” So ends the opinion of the Supreme Court in King v Burwell; Justice Scalia and two dissenting justices have offered their own interpretation in this document as well. In essence the health subsidies remain intact. SCOTUSblog, as it has done with past cases, provides great coverage of this case. Key points of the decision are examined here in The New York Times.
