High Court Rules for White House in Obamacare Subsidies Case

The Supreme Court sided Thursday with the White House in a crucial Obamacare case, ruling that the law’s health insurance subsidies can continue to flow to residents of states that are using HealthCare.gov.
The 6-3 decision in King v. Burwell preserves the structure of the Affordable Care Act and delivers a second major blow to Republican-backed attempts to undermine the president’s domestic policy legacy.
Roberts was joined by the court’s four liberal justices: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan and frequent swing justice Anthony Kennedy, who voted in 2012 to strike the law’s individual mandate.
