On January 21, 2020, the Supreme Court declined to grant expedited review of the lawsuit that seeks to strike down the entire Affordable Care Act (ACA). Texas and several other states are pursuing the case (now called California v. Texas) with the support of the Trump administration. Even though an expedited schedule was denied, the Court may still grant review, as California and the other states defending the ACA have requested. The Center joined AARP and Justice in Aging in filing an amicus brief in support of Supreme Court review. We remain hopeful that the Supreme Court will take up the case and reverse the clearly erroneous decision of the Fifth Circuit, which leaves the entire ACA at risk of being nullified. The Court should not let this dangerous uncertainty about the fate of the ACA continue.
