In a 7-2 victory, the Supreme Court ruled that the Affordable Care Act is here to stay, ruling against Texas AG Ken Paxton’s frivolous lawsuit to rip health care away from millions of Americans  

In addition to his work attempting to undermine access to health care, Paxton also led the lawsuit to overturn the results of the 2020 election without providing any evidence of the widespread voter fraud he alleged

Washington, D.C. — Today, the Supreme Court ruled against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s attempt to strike down the Affordable Care Act and kick millions of Americans off their health care. In light of the news, government watchdog Accountable.US released the following statement. 

“The Affordable Care Act is here to stay, despite Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s radical attempt to rip away health care from millions of Americans and strip protections from people with pre-existing conditions, even in the middle of a pandemic that has taken 600,000 American lives. This is not the first time the Supreme Court has rejected Paxton’s efforts to undo progress — SCOTUS also flatly rejected his baseless lawsuit to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Texans deserve better than a conspiracy theorist who attempts to undermine them at every turn.” said Kyle Herrig, president of Accountable.US.
