On Wednesday, the Supreme Court takes up a challenge to the Affordable Care Act. At issue is whether the language of the ACA allows the government to help Americans in every state afford health insurance through subsidies.

The stakes for the case are high: More than 8 million Americans could lose their insurance if the challenge is successful.

Burwell and the future of the ACA.
