Insurers can sue to collect billions in Obamacare dispute, Supreme Court rules

The Supreme Court ruled that the government must pay out $12 billion to insurers who had enrolled in the Affordable Care Act’s ’risk corridor’ program. The program limits profits and losses for insurance companies by having certain profits go to the HHS. But the payments never came after Congress ultimately declined to appropriate the money. ’Petitioners may sue for damages’, the court ruled.

single payer would have been better. but no, Republicans wanted the hot garbage mess ACA. they deliberately engineered a faulty healthcare reform bill so they could claim it can't be done. Obamacare was a republican bill. never forget who actually wrote the bill that republicans and trump were whining about.

The "Affordable Care Act" is such a joke and had caused more issues in our nation than it has solved. Thanks Obama.
