Anxiety over Supreme Court’s latest dive into health care
San Francisco Chronicle

Nearly five years after President Barack Obama signed his health care overhaul into law, its fate is yet again in the hands of the Supreme Court.

This time it’s not just the White House and Democrats who have reason to be anxious. Republican lawmakers and governors won’t escape the political fallout if the court invalidates insurance subsidies worth billions of dollars to people in more than 30 states.

Obama’s law offers subsidized private insurance to people who don’t have access to it on the job. Without financial assistance with their premiums, millions of those consumers would drop coverage.
