Judge rules against measure meant to undermine Obamacare

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks. Trump signed an official proclamation formally recognizing Israel's sovereig

District of Columbia-based U.S. District Court Judge John Bates said that the move let those involved "avoid the most stringent requirements of the ACA".

They have whittled away at the law, and managed to scrap the penalty imposed on anyone who fails to get insurance.

Rep. Joseph Kennedy III responded angrily to President Trump's claim that Republicans are now the party of health care after the Justice Department's abrupt decision to urge a federal court to strike down the law, also known as Obamacare, in its entirety.

Health care was the No. 1 motivating issue in the 2018 midterm elections that delivered Democrats a House majority.

Several Democratic presidential hopefuls also joined the escalating battle, lobbing criticism at Trump's administration for seeking to kick millions off health care and return to an era when insurance companies could deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions.

As for Democratic incumbents and Democratic challengers up in 2020, the choice between nothing and Obamacare-plus will provide the stark contrast they seek to make with Republicans.

On Monday, the Tong and the others, which include legal officials from California, Massachusetts, New Jersey and NY, filed their opening brief, arguing that all provisions of the health law should stand and detailing the harm that declaring the ACA invalid would have on the tens of millions who rely on it.

President Trump is going all in on a legal effort to discard Obamacare entirely.

Pelosi didn't waste time after the administration called for judicial destruction of the Affordable Care Act.

While Republicans largely oppose Obamacare on its merits, they have not been able to coalesce around an alternative when they controlled both chambers of Congress and the White House. "Obamacare doesn't work, it's too expensive.It's a disaster for our people". And "the costs" for Republicans "will be exponential in 2020" because "Democrats will have the upper hand on this issue until the Republicans come to the table with a plan-and we saw how that went since, what, forever?" He asserted that the case would do very well in the Supreme Court.

"That obviously hurt us last November because it was mischaracterized, but we can do a lot better job of taking care of pre-existing conditions", Wicker said.

He said that his administration had improved Obamacare during his presidency, but that he wanted to ultimately replace it.

Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics, said Democrats hold an "enormous advantage" because Americans trust Democrats over Republicans on reforming health care. He pledged to "always protect Americans with pre-existing conditions".

Conway said Obamacare had not been a "magic elixir" since more than 27.4 million non-elderly individuals in the United States were without health insurance in 2017, according to the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation.

"The Republicans I've talked to, they're scratching their heads", Steele noted, adding that those Republicans would prefer to avoid discussing health care because "they know their history on this subject is replete with failure".
