The Washington Examiner reports:
The Department of Justice doesn’t want the Supreme Court to fast-track a case that could result in Obamacare being thrown out ahead of the presidential election, despite its position that the healthcare law should be abolished. If the court agrees with the Trump administration, then President Trump and Republicans will be spared the possibility of having to come up with an Obamacare replacement in the middle of campaigning.
Solicitor General Noel Francisco spelled out the Trump administration’s argument against such a move on Friday in a letter written at the high court’s request. Democratic states have asked the Supreme Court to take up a challenge to Obamacare before the lower courts are done litigating it, saying that the law remains too much in limbo for patients and healthcare providers.
