The U.S. Supreme Court sided today with the Obama administration over its major healthcare overhaul, upholding federal subsidies across the country.
In a 6-3 ruling, the nation’s highest court ruled that critics’ reading of Obamacare might make sense in isolation, but not when viewed in a larger context and in light of the intention of the law.
It’s the second time the Supreme Court — and its conservative chief justice, John Roberts — has backed controversial portions of Obamacare. The first ruling was in 2012.
