Obamacare Thrown Out by Judge, Raising Insurance Uncertainty

Obamacare Thrown Out by Judge, Raising Insurance UncertaintyThe decision Friday finding the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional comes at the tail end of a six-week open enrollment period for the program in 2019 and underscores a divide between Republicans who have long sought to invalidate the law and Democrats who fought to keep it in place.

This year, the Camp Fire that erupted on Nov. 8 has accounted for the bulk of the claims, just over $ 7 billion of the total.
