From The Blog
In the not-too-distant future, the U.S. Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision in King v. Burwell will be viewed as a significant turning point for the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Simply stated, the ACA is not only the law of the land–it will remain the law of the land. And I believe that the Court’s decision foreshadows an end to the contentious and partisan fights about the ACA’s existence–and that, slowly but surely, a search for common purpose on health care will begin among conservatives and progressives, Republicans and Democrats.
