Trump To Urge SCOTUS To Strike Down Obamacare As Pandemic’s Job Losses Imperil Healthcare For Millions

Politico reports:

President Donald Trump on Wednesday said his administration will urge the Supreme Court to overturn Obamacare, maintaining its all-out legal assault on the health care law amid a pandemic that will drive millions of more Americans to depend on its coverage.

The administration appears to be doubling down on its legal strategy, even after Attorney General Bill Barr this week warned top Trump officials about the political ramifications of undermining the health care safety net during the coronavirus emergency.

The Justice Department has a Wednesday deadline to file a brief in a case brought by Republican-led states. Trump told reporters Wednesday afternoon his administration will stand by its position. DOJ declined to comment on Trump’s remarks.
