from Zero Hedge:
The Supreme Court has ruled that people who bought healthcare coverage through federal exchanges as part of Obamacare can keep subsidies that effectively limit the amount low- and middle-income Americans pay for health insurance to 9.5% of their income or less.
TAX SUBSIDIES UPHELD BY U.S. SUPREME COURT – This is, naturally, a huge win for Obama whose Affordable Care Law has just overcome its last legitimate legal challenge. The outtcome is hardly unexpected (see below on “most liberal Supreme Court since 1960”), but that the final vote was 6-3 is clearly surprising as most pundits were expecting a 5-4 Roberts-led tiebreaker.
As The Hill summarizes, the SCOTUS upheld a key provision of ObamaCare, affirming that 6.4 million people can continue to receive subsidies that allow them to purchase healthcare plans.
