    US Supreme Court rejects Trump-backed challenge to Obamacare – By BBC Newsroom (BBC) / June 17 2021

    The US Supreme Court has rejected a Trump-backed challenge by Republican-led states to former President Barack Obama’s healthcare overhaul.

    Despite the court’s conservative tilt, its nine justices ruled by 7-2 that the challengers did not have legal standing to sue.

    It is the third time since 2010 that the Affordable Care Act (ACA), known as Obamacare, has survived a challenge.

    Thursday’s ruling did not address the question of whether a key provision in the law was unconstitutional.
