The Trump administration filed a brief with the Supreme Court on Thursday asking them to get rid of the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare).
Despite being in the midst of a pandemic, the administration argues that the entire law bust fall. Essentially the Supreme Court is going to hear a case in which the ACA was ruled illegal. The Trump administration is supposed to be the defendant, but they have refused to defend the law. Instead of defending the law, they are asking the court to get rid of it.
Critics of the administration and proponents of the ACA point out that repealing the law in the middle of a pandemic would cause issues with not only affordability but with access, as the current healthcare system relies on provisions like the pre-existing protections provision and the provisions that allow for cost assistance.
