Supreme Court set to hear second major Obamacare challenge

A man looks over the Affordable Care Act signup page on the HealthCare.gov website in New York in this photo illustrationBy Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court will weigh a second major case targeting President Barack Obama's healthcare law on Wednesday when it considers a conservative challenge to tax subsidies critical to the measure's implementation. If a majority of the nine justices rules against the administration, up to 7.5 million people in at least 34 states would lose subsidies that help low- and moderate-income people afford private health insurance, unless Congress or the affected states act immediately. Such a ruling could also have a broader impact by deterring younger, healthier people from buying health insurance, which would lead to premiums rising for older, less healthy people who need healthcare most, said Rand Corporation economist Christine Eibner. The Democratic-backed law, narrowly passed by Congress over unified Republican opposition, aimed to help millions of Americans who lacked any health insurance afford coverage.

Factbox: Contrasting legal styles in Supreme Court Obamacare drama

Yahoo! National News - 11 hours 28 min ago
(Reuters) - When the U.S. Supreme Court takes up the new challenge to President Barack Obama’s healthcare law on Wednesday, the justices will hear from two experienced attorneys with dueling views and contrasting styles. DONALD VERRILLI U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, 57, will defend the law for the Obama administration. When Verrilli argued on behalf of the law the first time, in 2012, news and political commentators lambasted him. “This was a train wreck for the Obama administration,” CNN legal commentator Jeffrey Toobin said at the time, contending Verrilli’s style was shaky and his responses ineffective.

O'Malley rules out Senate as decision over White House bid looms

Yahoo! National News - 11 hours 31 min ago

Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley speaks at a campaign rally for Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown in MarylandFormer Maryland Governor and possible Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley said on Tuesday he will not seek the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Senator Barbara Mikulski. O'Malley, who left office in January and has said he is considering a run for the White House, told reporters in an email he hoped other candidates would step up to represent the mid-Atlantic state, but "I will not be one of them." The move allows O'Malley, 52, to keep the door open for a potential presidential campaign. Despite winning two terms as governor in the heavily Democratic State, his future is somewhat complicated by his successor's surprise loss to a Republican in the November election. O'Malley is popular among Democrats and spent much of the last year actively campaigning for fellow liberals across the country, especially in New Hampshire and Iowa, the first two states with presidential nominating contests.
