Court Strikes Down Obamacare’s Individual Mandate

Axios reports:

A federal appeals court on Wednesday ruled that the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate is unconstitutional, but ordered a lower court to take a fresh look at how much of the rest of the law should fall along with it.

This decision will likely keep the ACA’s protections for pre-existing conditions in legal limbo well past the 2020 election. GOP attorneys general have argued that Republicans’ 2017 tax law, which nullified the ACA’s individual mandate, made that policy unconstitutional.
