Only 2 states accept federal offer to protect subsidies if court rules against Obamacare

scotusMore than 30 of states face the loss of federal health care subsidies should the Supreme Court rule against the Obama administration this month, but only two — Pennsylvania and Delaware — have signaled that they are considering further embracing Obamacare in a bid to head off the effects of the ruling.

The Obama administration set a June 1 deadline for states looking to express interest if they wanted to set up their own exchanges for 2016, and Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf took advantage, sending a 140-page blueprint to the Health and Human Services Department he said he hoped would “protect 382,000 Pennsylvanians from potentially losing subsidies that help them afford health care coverage.”

In Delaware, health officials said they submitted a “non-binding blueprint” to HHS outlining their interest in a similar arrangement to protect 21,000 residents.

    According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll, support for ObamaCare is at a “record low” level!!
    According to the Washington Post, “The survey finds opinion on the health-care law among the worst in Post-ABC polling; 54 percent oppose, up six percentage points from a year ago.”
    Five Years later… Most Of The American Public Is Still Not Buying, The Democrats Or Obama’s Selling Of ObamaCare!
    REPEAL, OBAMACARE ENTIRELY…So It Becomes Just A Memory!
    If The Exchanges Fall…Hopefully, All of Obamacare Will Fall!
