Federal Judge Upholds Health Care Subsidies
New York Times

A federal judge rejected a legal challenge on Wednesday to a central part of President Obama’s health care law, ruling that millions of low- and moderate-income people could obtain health insurance subsidies regardless of whether they bought coverage through the federal insurance exchange or in marketplaces run by the states.

Critics of the law had said that a literal reading of it would allow subsidies only in the 14 states that ran their own exchanges.
