Five States Win $839 Million Lawsuit Against Obamacare...

•, by Breitbart

The Affordable Care Act (ACA), better known as Obamacare, requires medical providers to pay a Health Insurance Provider Fee, even though the ACA exempts states from paying that fee when providing health care.  The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) during the Obama era created a regulation requiring states to pay the fee anyway, a fee that is styled as a tax on the states.  Texas sued in federal court and was joined by Indiana, Nebraska, Kansas, and Louisiana- the states were awarded a total of $839 million.   The mainstream media is ignoring this story because it supports President Trump's contention that parts of Obamacare are illegal and should be repealed.
