Supreme Court agrees to hear challenge to Affordable Care Act

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the conservative challenge to health insurance subsidies in the Affordable Care Act.

The justices announced Friday that they will rule on whether the ACA "authorizes subsidies that help millions of low- and middle-income people afford their health insurance premiums," The Associated Press reports. Opponents of the law argue that the subsidies are illegal.

In 2012, the justices "upheld the heart of the law" in a 5-4 decision. Now, ObamaCare is heading back to the Supreme Court once again. For more information on why the case is so important, check out this Vox explainer.
