The last legal chal­lenge remain­ing to the Afford­able Care Act is a miss­ing clause in the statute, which means, to some, that the sub­si­dies now made avail­able to make indi­vid­ual health insur­ance more afford­able actu­al­ly ille­gal. This issue has been kick­ing around for some time, but now the case has been brought to the US Court of Appeals in Wash­ing­ton, DC. Accord­ing to Michael Can­non, direc­tor of health pol­i­cy stud­ies at the Cato Insti­tute, “they miscalculated…everyone assumed that all states would estab­lish exchanges” and “this was a draft­ing error that was made nine times. That tells you, no, this wasn’t an error. It was done deliberately.”
