Republicans win Obamacare legal challenge, add to insurer concerns
A U.S. judge on Thursday handed a victory to congressional Republicans who challenged President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law, ruling that his administration overstepped its constitutional powers relating to government spending.
U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer, based in Washington, ruled that the administration cannot spend billions of dollars in federal funds to provide subsidies under the law known as Obamacare to private insurers without the approval of Congress.

If subsidies are banned,how many people will drop their government required insurance?
Stacie , more the problem is going to be the ever increasing premiums that are showing up everywhere , eight , ten , fifteen percent yearly premiums ........every year ? That alone tells me that it ain't free ! Underwriters in many states are at least threatening dropping coverage's . It isn't affordable - bottom line .
Besides the fact that the constitution guarantees freedom from federal oversight and dictation of policy of individual states in many, many area's.
