Legal issues settled, Affordable Care Act remains “a political football” (Audio)

Now that the Supreme Court has upheld the heart of President Obama’s health care reform plan, many are wondering – what’s next for the Affordable Care Act?

House Republicans in Washington have scheduled a vote to repeal the ACA for July 11th. At the state level, Senate President Phil Berger says there are no plans for the state to move forward in setting up North Carolina’s health care exchange this year.

Adam Linker with the Health Access Coalition at the N.C. Justice Center says while the issue will be a political football this election season, many aspects of the law are very popular with consumers.

Linker appears on News & Views with Chris Fitzsimon this weekend to discuss the this week’s historic ruling, how millions of North Carolinians are already benefiting from the law,  and what’s next in its implementation.

    Hey Phil, your dumbass doesn’t have to set up an exchange, one of the provisions is for the federal government to do it when obstructionist teaidiots such as yourself refuse to do their jobs.
