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 plaintiffs argue the wording of the legislation limits tax credits to people in states that have set up their own health care exchanges. The stakes for the case are high: More than 8 million Americans could lose their insurance if the challenge is successful. Now Republicans are readying alternative plans to Obamacare, amid rising concerns on Capitol Hill over who would take the blame for a messy fallout. We explore King v. Burwell and the future of the ACA.
