Opponents of Affordable Care Act subsidies file petition for Supreme Court case

A group of Virginia residents hope to overturn the 4th Circuit ruling allowing the subsidies

The Federal Circuit said federally-run state insurance exchanges were not eligible to provide subsidies to qualifying middle- and low-income consumers. Hours later, the 4th Circuit issued the opposite ruling, saying the subsidies were legal under the Affordable Care Act. So which appeals court will have their way? If a group of Virginia residents have a say, the answer may come in the form of a Supreme Court ruling.

Just nine days after the 4th Circuit made their ruling, a group of Virginia residents opposed to the subsidies, filed a petition with the Supreme Court to get the case heard. Those filing the petition are seeking to move quickly to get the case resolved.
