Obama care takes a hit in federal court

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

 A federal appeals court has sided with plaintiffs who argue that funding for Obamacare runs afoul of the constitution.

USA Today reports: The appeals panel ruled that as written, the health care law allows tax credits to be offered to qualified participants only in state-run exchanges. The administration had expected most if not all states to create their own, but only 16 states did so.

Without the tax credits that were the point of contention in the lawsuit, most people would be financially strained to by the Obamacare insurance, and would likely drop it.

A person associated with the Cato Institute, which helped bring the lawsuit, called this a result of "popular resistance" to Obamacare.
