Judge Rules for House GOP in Challenge to Obamacare
NBC News

A federal judge in Washington ruled for House Republicans Thursday in the latest challenge to the Obama health care law. Judge Rosemary Collyer said a provision of the law provides money to insurance companies that was never appropriated by Congress, violating the Constitution’s declaration that “No money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in consequence of appropriations made by law.” The provision at issue compensates insurance companies when they reduce out-of-pocket expenses for low income people covered under Obamacare.
