The Supreme Court won't consider a challenge to ObamaCare until after the 2020 election. Even though a coalition of Democratic states asked the Supreme Court to quickly decide whether it would consider an appeal to a challenge to the Affordable Care Act, the court declined to do so on Tuesday. Texas introduced its lawsuit against the ACA in 2018 in an attempt to declare it unconstitutional, and a federal court ruled in Texas' favor. The judge let the ACA temporarily remain in effect because of the "uncertainty" a likely appeal would bring. The Democratic attorneys general who appealed the case to the Supreme Court requested a quick decision because dragging it out further "threatens adverse consequences for our nation's health-care system," but the court denied that.
