NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - The future of Obamacare could be at stake on Tuesday when a coalition of Democratic-led states and House of Representatives urge a federal appeals court to overturn a Texas judge’s ruling that the U.S. healthcare reform law is unconstitutional.

Republicans have repeatedly tried to repeal Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act (ACA), since its 2010 passage, and while the Justice Department would normally defend a federal law, the Trump administration has declined to defend its constitutionality against a challenge by 18 Republican-led states.

A coalition of Democratic state attorneys general led by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra stepped into the void to defend the law. The House intervened after Democrats won control in November’s elections after many focused their campaigns on defending Obamacare.

A three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, including two judges appointed by Republican presidents and one by a Democrat, will take up a ruling by a federal judge in Texas last year that the entire ACA was unconstitutional.

3. Supreme Court already ruled on the constitutionality of the current ACA - 5-4 in favor.

And the 5 votes in favor are still on the court but 2 of the 4 against are gone.

7. Right there with you, BP.

If the ACA fails I can kiss my cancer treatment goodbye.

I'm trying to keep up hope - and I think Cuomo/our Dem state reps will do their best to make sure us vulnerable New Yorkers keep our coverage, but who knows with these madmen in charge?

8. That's the thing...

the endless question, "Will I be able to get treatment for my health tomorrow, next week, next month, etc?" is making us live with uncertainty about our LIVES!!!!! This isn't about paying more due to tariffs but LIFE and DEATH. This is an extremely important issue and the GOP is treating it like it's a game. Where is Karma? All the GOP members should be stricken down with a serious and costly disease and go bankrupt trying to pay for it.

9. Yes, and you would think that

with the popularity of the ACA across party lines, the Republicans would be screaming their heads off at this.

12. This will end up

Back at the Supreme Court. If this wouldn’t hurt so many people, I’d say - go ahead. The reality of killing Obamacare would likely kill the Republican Party. But the price is too damn high.
