FLASHBACK: Senate Dems Call Barrett Nomination a Threat to Obamacare

June 21, 2021

The Supreme Court affirmed the Affordable Care Act in a 7-2 decision on Thursday, dismissing the challenge to the law and leaving Obamacare intact. Justice Amy Coney Barrett was among the justices who ruled in favor of the decision. During Barrett's confirmation hearings in October 2020, Democrats claimed that the very existence of the Affordable Care Act was in jeopardy if she were confirmed to serve on the High Court, as she would vote to overturn the law.
