The U.S. Supreme Court has once again refused to take up a new constitutional challenge to the Affordable Care Act. The high court rejected an appeal that claimed lawmakers used flawed legislative procedures to pass the measure. Opponents of President Barack Obama’s health care law were seeking to get a court that has upheld core parts of the measure twice since 2012, most recently in June, to change course. In the latest case, they argued that the law violated the constitutional requirement that revenue-raising legislation start in the House before proceeding to the Senate.

In declining to hear that contention, the high court all but ensured that the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, will remain intact through the November election. The rebuff leaves health care as one of the core issues in the presidential and congressional campaigns. I suspect the Republican candidates for president wanted the issue to stay alive since it appears “most” of them “don’t like” our current president very much.
