Obama’s Health Law Wrongly Repaying Funds to Insurers, Judge Says
The Wall Street Journal

A federal judge on Thursday dealt a blow to the Obama administration’s health law, ruling the government improperly reimburses insurers to cover discounts to low-income consumers.

The decision by U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer introduces significant new legal uncertainty for the law, President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement, just before the heat of the 2016 election season.

The ruling came in a lawsuit filed by House Republicans challenging the law’s implementation.
