A political flashpoint since it was signed into law by President Barack Obama in 2010, the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) makes federal subsidies available to people who cannot afford to pay for health insurance. The challenge, mounted by conservative critics, focuses on four words in the law: “established by the state.” The court is being asked to decide if that means only people using state-run exchanges, as opposed to one administered by the federal government, are eligible for federal subsidies to pay for insurance.
