  • Obamacare: Massachusetts provides SCOTUS the basis for upholding law it inspired

    WGBH - 06/25/2015

    Wendy Parmet, director of the program on health policy and law at Northeastern University, says the court ruled that when Congress drafted the ACA, they meant to implement all of those Massachusetts legs — regulations, mandated coverage, and tax credits.

    “What the court said here was you have to read the ACA in light of all three legs of that stool,” Parmet said. “And that’s really what Congress was attempting to do with the ACA, to do what Massachusetts did, and that understanding has to be read into the ACA.”
