Supreme Court Ruling On Affordable Healthcare Act Looms

Speaking Tuesday at the Catholic Hospital Association’s annual conference in Washington DC, President Obama renewed his argument that the Affordable Care Act was here to stay, and if anybody tries to tear it down, the consequences will not be well received by those millions already benefitting from the program.

In a sense, the president is daring the Supreme Court, and ostensibly Congressional Republicans (who could fix things legislatively), to overturn the key provision in their ruling later this month. The White House has already indicated there is no contingency plan should the provision regarding state exchanges be struck down.

ABC’s Mary Bruce joined us from Washington DC to discuss.
