A U.S. District Court judge in Texas is agreeing with Republican state attorney generals that Obamacare is unconstitutional. A coalition of 20 states argued they were harmed by the increase in the number of people on state-supported insurance rolls. U.S. District Court Judge Reed O'Connor in Fort Worth agreed with them that when Congress repealed the individual mandate, it made the law unconstitutional. The decision is likely to be appealed all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Democratic officials in 15 states are defending the law after the Trump Administration sided with the Republican states.
