Courts divided on wording in Obamacare


WASHINGTON D.C. (WKZ0) -- A Court of Appeals ruling that says only state run healthcare exchanges can hand out tax breaks and subsidies under obamacare, could leave 200-thousand in Michigan without affordable healthcare. But this court fight is far from over.

Kalamazoo’s Mark Totten, who is running against Attorney General Bill Schuette, is blasting him for signing on to the court challenge which could cost those Michiganders up to 47-hundred dollars per year.

Schutte Spokesperson Joy Yearout is defending their position, saying its up to Congress to get it right.

It’s under appeal, for now the effected residents will continue to receive their subsidies.

Other judges have disagreed and this seems headed to the Supreme Court eventually.
