Supreme Court refuses to hear another Obamacare case
USA Today

The Supreme Court refused Tuesday to consider yet another challenge to Obamacare.

The justices turned down a challenge from conservatives that contended Congress violated the Constitution when it approved the law in 2010 by sending a bill that raised revenue through the Senate before the House. The Constitution says revenue-raising bills must originate in the House.

A federal appeals court had turned down the petition because, a panel of judges said, the law was predominately a bill to improve health insurance coverage, not a revenue-raising bill.
