Appeals arguments are set for July 9th in the lawsuit that could decide the fate of the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare).
Essentially what happens is this:
- Appeals are heard.
- A ruling is given.
- The losing side likely brings the case to the Supreme Court
- A final decision is made by the Supreme Court
- At that point, if the ACA is declared illegal, then it is up to the Congress and the courts as to what happens next. The decision may not go into effect right away, and Congress can always pass legislation to create new rules.
In other words, the ACA is still the law of the land while the legal battle plays out, but at this point we have dates set for the next step in the process.
