Democrats appeal ruling declaring Obamacare unconstitutional

Seventeen Democratic attorneys general on Thursday appealed a federal court ruling that would strike down all of Obamacare.

The attorneys general are putting the case back into the spotlight as candidates gear up for the 2020 elections. The fight is likely to continue over months or years, and it could land before the Supreme Court.

“Our goal is simple: to stand up for the law of the land — the Affordable Care Act — in order to keep healthcare affordable and accessible for millions of Americans,” California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said in a statement. “This shouldn’t be a debate; the ACA has been the law for nearly a decade and is the backbone of our healthcare system.”

The ruling will be appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit in New Orleans.
