Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who sued in February, is leading a 20-state coalition along with Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel to fight against the Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as Obamacare.
The trial date has been set for Sept. 10, 2018.
The ACA was enacted in March 2010, which was advertised as providing affordable and accessible health insurance for households with incomes between 100 to 400 percent of the federal poverty level. However, it hasn’t done that. Instead, millions of people who had health insurance lost their health insurance. Everyone with a reportable income who earned enough money was required to purchase health insurance through a marketplace system. Those who didn’t were required to pay a hefty fine.
