Judge Reed O & # 39; Connor Obamacare Judges Pose New Problems for GOP

WASHINGTON (AP) – A federal judge deciding that Obama’s health law is unconstitutional has landed like a stinky bomb among Republicans who have seen the policy of health care flip, as Americans increasingly value the constituencies of monitoring, including protection for existing medical conditions and Medicaid for more low-income earners.

Although the Republican appointed judge in Texas fell, it has little immediate practical impact because the Affordable Care Act persists while the legal battle continues, possibly to the supreme court.

HealthCare.gov, Government’s website for notification, filed applications on Saturday, the deadline in most states to sign up for coverage next year, and these benefits will come into force as scheduled January 1

st. Medicaid expansion will continue in Virginia, one of the last states to accept that option. Employers will still be required to cover the young adult children for workers, and Medicare recipients will still receive discounted prescription drugs.

However, republicans, who still sting from their loss of the House in the middle of the election, face a new political dilemma after the US District Judge Reed, Connor said that the entire 2010 healthcare was invalid.

Warnings about the Texas trial were part of the political story behind the democrats election star. Health care was the top target of about a quarter of voters in the November elections before immigration and jobs and the economy, according to VoteCast, a nationwide survey for The Associated Press. The most concerned with health care supported democrats overwhelmingly.

O & # 39; Connor motivated in his judgment that the body of the body could not be surgically separated from the now meaningless requirement that people would receive health insurance.

“On the assumption that the Supreme Court maintains, we will receive good care for our people,” said President Donald Trump to journalists during a visit to the Arlington National Cemetery on Saturday. “We have to sit down with Democrats to do it, but I’m sure they will also do that.”

Economist Gail Wilensky, who supervised the Medicare program for President George H.W. Bush, said the state attorneys general from the GOP party who left the trial, were really not very burdensome by their colleagues.

“The fact that they could hurt their other Republicans did not hurt to disturb them,” said Wilensky, a critic of President Barack Obama’s signature at home.

“The people who raised it are a lot of guys who do not have serious choice problems, mostly from states where saber rattling against ACA is good,” she added. “How many choices do you have to hit before you find another problem?”

Douglas Holtz-Eakin, top administrator of Republican John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign, said he was affected by the relative silence of top republicans after the ruling issued.

A prominent example: “The house was not a party in this costume, and we are reviewing the ruling and its impact,” said AshLee Strong, spokesman for President Paul Ryan, R-Wis.

The Republicans are “Will need to find out what to do,” said Holtz-Eakin. “If it’s invalid by the courts, it’s not …” We’ll do it on our way. “They will need to meet with the Democrats in the Chamber.”

GOP’s unsuccessful effort last year for the repeal law showed that there was no consensus within the party itself.

Trump tweeted on Friday night that “Congress must pass a strong law that provides great health care and protects existing conditions.”

“Make it clear!” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., And Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Who is expected to be a speaker in January. But Trump had no plans to offer in the “Cancellation and Compensation” debate from 2017.

Two top republicans issue divergent statements.

Majority leader Kevin McCarthy in California said “Obamacare is a broken team”, but “I’m determined to work with my colleagues on both sides of the time to ensure that America’s healthcare system works for all Americans.”

The third ranked GOP leader, Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise, praised the judge’s verdict and mentioned nothing about working with democrats, as he accused of “pushing a fear-mongering campaign” to gain control over the House last month.

The Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, said that if the law eventually turned, congressional parties from both sides should start over and work together. He urged to enforce provisions as protection for existing medical conditions, no life insurance policies, and allow young adults to stay on parental control for 26 years.

Democrats agreed to condemn the ruling.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York said voters will remember. “What will stand is Republican ownership of such a harmful and catastrophic trial,” Schumer tweeted.

The next chapter in the case may take months to play.

A coalition of democratic civil servants led by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra will appeal to O’Connor’s decision, probably to the US Appeals Board for the 5th New Orleans Circuit Board.

“The legal benefits of the case are rogue,” said University of Michigan lawyer Professor Nicholas Bagley. “The idea that a constitution of an indisputable mandate in any way requires that the entire ACA exaggerate is bonkers.” Bagley supports the law in general, but has been critical of how it has come into force.
