The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals rules that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is Constitutional, affirming the ruling of the district court.
“We find that the minimum coverage provision is a valid exercise of legislative power by Congress under the Commerce Clause and therefore AFFIRM the decision of the district court.”
In the beginning of this legal saga, the Affordable Care Act won a series of victories, followed by a string of defeats. Now, this higher court ruled in it's favor. It is as clear as ever that we need to look to the highest court in the land to resolve the debate.
