Supreme Court Reaffirms Affordable Care Act

United States Supreme Court

United States Supreme Court

The Supreme Court ruled today in a 6-3 decision that federal tax credits for health care should be available not only in states that have set up their own health care exchanges, but also in the 34 states that have set up federal marketplaces.

“Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the majority opinion. “If at all possible, we must interpret the act in a way that is consistent with the former, and avoids the latter.”

Today’s Supreme Court ruling, as President Obama said in a White House statement, means that the “Affordable Care Act is here to stay.”

NAHB continues to fight for a market-based health care system, and to make Affordable Care Act compliance less costly and more efficient for our members.

Today, we achieved an important victory with the introduction of bipartisan legislation in the House and Senate that would allow small business employers to use Health Reimbursement Arrangements to help small business owners to provide health care for their employees.
