Trump Administration Backs Texas Judge Who Ruled Obamacare Illegal
U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration has stepped up its attack on the Obamacare health care law.
The administration telling a federal appeals court it agrees with a Texas judge’s ruling that Obamacare is unconstitutional and should be struck down.
The Justice Department in a filing on Monday said it backed U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor in Fort Worth's ruling that found the Affordable Care Act violated the U.S. Constitution because it required people to buy health insurance.
O’Connor ruled that a Trump-backed change to the U.S. tax code made the law unconstitutional.
