US Supreme Court upholds Obamacare Act

The United States Supreme Court has upheld Obamacare Act, the law which aims to provide affordable health insurance for all Americans, dismissing a legal challenge from Texas and two other Republican-governed states.

This is the third time since 2010 that the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the signature policy of former President Barack Obama has survived a challenge. The law bans insurers from denying coverage due to pre-existing conditions. It also gave millions of low-income Americans access to medical insurance.

The Justices ruled by a 7-2 majority that the challengers had no legal standing to file their case. The ruling did not touch on whether a key provision in the law was unconstitutional.
The challenge was backed by former president Donald Trump.
