If Supreme Court says no, they’d lose health insurance help
San Francisco Chronicle

If the court says no, people across more than 30 states could lose federal subsidies for their premiums. The legal arguments the justices will hear are complex. Opponents who brought the lawsuit argue the law’s literal wording only allows the government to pay subsidies in states that have set up their own insurance markets, or exchanges.
