Description
When the United States gets stuck over a controversial issue—usually something a divided Congress cannot solve—it turns to the courts. In 2010, Congress passed the Affordable Care Act (ACA)—dubbed “Obamacare” by its critics. Republicans claimed it was unconstitutional because it required citizens to purchase health insurance. (Romney’s 2006 Massachusetts health care law requires the same.) In 2012, the Supreme Court ruled 5–4 that requiring payment was constitutional (under the power to tax). Most Republicans were furious, but none suggested defying the Court’s decision
