Affordable Care Act

Confusion over ACA should be no surprise

It should not surprise anyone that two federal courts came to opposite conclusions about the subsidies required by the Affordable Care Act (“Does the Trump administration’s latest Obamacare attack help or hurt the ACA? Maybe both.” July 12).

The legislation created a shell game taking premiums from some insurers to subsidize others. We really should allow this confusing mess to fade away and allow insurance companies to compete for business in a national insurance market across state lines.
