Sad….health care takes one step forward only to be pulled one step back.
The Supreme Court has decided to revive a Christian university's lawsuit against Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act after the university asked for a rehearing.
Liberty University (as well as many others) sued the federal government over the individual mandate that all individuals needed to purchase health insurance by 2014, as well as the mandate requiring large employers to cover their employees.
The university's lawsuit was thrown out by a federal appeals court in Virginia, claiming the Lynchburg, VA school lacked jurisdiction because challenging the mandates would have violated the federal Anti-Injunction Act's ban on lawsuits seeking to halt collection of a tax.
Pretty wordy and confusing, right?
Well, Liberty asked for a rehearing on claims that the appeal was incorrect, and the Supreme Court has granted Liberty's wish.
As a recap, the SC passed Obamacare in a 5-4 vote earlier this year.
Oh we hope and pray that they will, but today Obamacare is still, just a
bill controversial law….
