Supremes is a term that means the highest court in the land.
And in recent months, it’s been used in the most literal sense.
A federal appeals court on Friday issued a decision that will set the stage for a potentially wide-ranging series of decisions.
The Supreme Court will likely be called upon to weigh in on a series of challenges challenging the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, which the justices are expected to issue in coming months.
The court will decide whether states can refuse to comply with federal health care law and whether the federal government can force people to pay for coverage under the law.
This is a major political question, and one that will define the course of the next four years in Washington, D.C.
The issue of the law has been a divisive one for years.
Republicans, including Donald Trump, have argued that the law is unconstitutional and is unworkable, and Democrats, including Barack Obama, have said it would be a boon to people who don’t have health insurance.
In addition, the Supreme’s conservative majority has said the law would have no real effect on health care.
The law has also drawn criticism from conservative groups, including the conservative Heritage Foundation, for its restrictions on access to health care and for requiring Americans to pay more for their health care through the individual market.
The Trump administration has argued that it will continue to enforce the law and is willing to make up the difference by offering lower premiums to those who choose not to buy coverage.
In the past, the high court has often been used to determine whether a state’s interpretation of the health care statute is constitutional.
And a decision to challenge the constitutionalities of the ACA could be the first step toward a larger legal battle over whether it violates the 14th Amendment’s guarantee of equal protection under the U.S. Constitution.
The ACA is a complex law that, unlike other health care policies, has broadened coverage beyond the individual marketplace.
It provides subsidies for low-income Americans to purchase insurance plans on the health insurance exchanges.
Under the ACA, those who buy a plan on the exchanges can be reimbursed for the cost of covering their medical expenses.
In some cases, this means that an individual may be able to pay less for a care plan than he or she pays for an employer-sponsored plan.
Under current law, insurers are allowed to charge people a 30% surcharge for plans that cover a certain number of services and treatments.
Under a Trump administration proposal, insurers could be able charge a 30-percent surcharge to people with pre-existing conditions.
The Supreme Court is considering a challenge to the ACA’s individual mandate, which requires individuals to purchase health insurance or pay a penalty, but many Democrats have said that the provision should not be struck down.
The mandate is an essential part of the federal health insurance system, which has grown significantly over the past four years as the number of Americans without health insurance has fallen dramatically.
