The U.S Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act on Thursday, the challenge to block it was proposed by Republican-led states and the former Trump administration.
The Affordable Care Act was enacted in March 2010, also known as "Obamacare", to provide affordable health insurance coverage for all Americans and protect them from insurance company tactics that can prevent them from receiving health care services.
This is the third attempt to challenge the law since it was enacted and advocated for by former president, Barack Obama. According to CNN, the justices said the challengers did not have a legal right to bring the case; the overall majority decision was 7-2 against the proposition to block it.
It was recorded early this month that about 30 million Americans received health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act. In an analysis by Anthony Zurcher of BBC news, despite the ruling coming from the most conservative Supreme Court bench—after former president Trump's nominations—they didn't consider any potential merits of the case stating how it lacked the standing to even be presented.
