“But in a major victory for the states who challenged the law, the court said that the Obama administration cannot coerce states to go along with the Medicaid insurance program for low-income people.”
I’ve heard very little coverage of this aspect of the ruling, and it makes me kind of nervous. What impact will this have on the Affordable Care Act? Can ”Obamacare” really survive if a whole bunch of states can opt out of participating? What happens to people with no access to affordable coverage who live in those states?
