Even though Dems are now in control of the House, they may soon get some very bad news from the Supreme Court.
President Donald Trump believes the high court will uphold a recent decision by a Texas judge that would render their prized Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act, unconstitutional.
If that happens, Dems will have to work hand-in-hand with Republicans to create a new health care package for Americans.
In the Court’s Hands
One of the very first issues the Supreme Court will decide on when they start their new term this month is the decision by District Judge Reed O’Connor on Obamacare.
O’Connor deemed that the individual mandate part of the law unconstitutional.
Without that provision, Congress doesn’t have the authority from the Constitution to enact the rest of the law, meaning that the entire legislative package was struck down by the Texas judge.
Democrats Left Steaming
Democrats were furious when O’Connor handed down his decision.
They soon stated that they plan on appealing his decision ASAP.
But President Trump believes their appeals will be futile.
“That case from Texas should win in the Supreme Court,” Trump said.
“We should win at the Supreme Court, where this case will go. When we do, we will sit down with the Democrats and we will come up with great health care,” the president added.
The Irony of It All
It is pretty ironic that a Republican-controlled Congress, Senate, and White House failed to overturn Obamacare during Trump’s first two years.
Now, with Democrats in charge of the House, it would be a slap in the face for the one piece of Obama’s legacy that is still somewhat intact to come tumbling down while the blue party holds the majority.
But with a conservative tilt on the Supreme Court, it is hard to imagine this case coming down in Democrats’ favor.
They will no doubt cry to the high heavens about it, but they will finally have no other option than to do their jobs and compromise with the GOP on a solution — something they’ve failed to do for decades.
