Amid pandemic, Trump administration asks Supreme Court to overturn Obamacare

first_imgJPecha/iStockBy DEVIN DWYER, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — In the midst of a pandemic and without an alternative health plan of its own, the Trump administration formally called on the U.S. Supreme Court to completely strike down the Affordable Care Act.The administration makes the case in a legal brief filed Thursday in the case brought by 20 Republican-led states that want to completely invalidate the law. The justices will hear oral arguments as soon as October, which is just weeks before the general election.Two lower federal courts have ruled that the ACA’s individual mandate is unconstitutional after the GOP Congress in 2017 zeroed out the penalty for going without health insurance. Both courts called into question the viability of the entire law without the mandate.“The individual mandate cannot be severed from the remainder of the ACA,” writes Trump solicitor general Noel Francisco. “The entire ACA thus must fall with the individual mandate.”California and 19 other Democrat-led states are defending the law.Former Vice President Joe Biden defended Obamacare Thursday at a campaign stop focused on health care, saying doing away with the ACA during a pandemic could be particularly harmful to many that need health care the most.“I think it’s cruel. It’s heartless. It’s callous. And it’s all because, in my view, he can’t abide the thought of letting stand on one of President Obama’s greatest achievements, the Affordable Care Act,” Biden said of the administrations’ lawsuit.Biden warned those who have survived COVID-19 and have subsequent health issues could be especially at-risk.“They would live their lives caught in a vise between Donald Trump’s twin legacies: his failure to protect the American people from the coronavirus and his heartless crusade to take health care protections away from American families,” Biden said.The ACA has sharply reduced the number of uninsured Americans since 2010, covering 20 million more people than if the law had not taken effect, according to the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation.Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi issued a statement late Thursday night, calling the Trump administration’s decision “unfathomably cruelty” to “rip away the protections and benefits of the Affordable Care Act in the middle of the coronavirus crisis.”“There is no legal justification and no moral excuse for the Trump Administration’s disastrous efforts to take away Americans’ health care,” she said.Industry groups and independent health care analysts say abruptly wiping out Obamacare would mean a highly disruptive shift in the health care of millions of Americans.An estimated 52 million Americans have preexisting health conditions that insurers could have denied coverage to under pre-ACA rules in most states, the foundation said.Preexisting condition protections and Obamacare insurance subsidies remain in place, for now, as the case continues, but could be at risk.The case marks the third time the justices will consider the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act since it was signed by President Barack Obama in 2010. Chief Justice John Roberts in 2012 famously cast the decisive vote, siding with the court’s liberal justices to uphold the law. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Sea Bright Talks Infrastructure and Flooding

first_imgJack Sanders He also shared concern about the current government’s lack of transparency, made up of “mostly the same people” who have been in leadership positions for some time. “It’s developed a bubble,” he said. Specifically, Sanders said the council should be more transparent about development plans and potential school district changes. As an attorney, Sanders has been “dealing with holding governments accountable” for the majority of his career. He got involved politically in Sea Bright when developers proposed river-front development near his home downtown with little concern for potential flooding impacts, he said. John M. Lamia Jr. Samuel A. Catalano Brian Kelly Lamia is a former councilman and served from July 2014 through Dec. 31, 2017. During his time on council, he facilitated a fundraiser to replenish lost beach and lifeguard equipment, reestablished dunes, helped bring lifeguards to Anchorage Beach and more. He was a member of the grant, finance and Lead on the Beach committees. “I am committed to community progress, prudent spending, fairness, diversity and improved communication,” he said. If elected, Kelly said his goal is to keep taxes as low as possible, bring in revenue, be inclusive of people’s ideas and improve flood and storm resilience initiatives. During his time on council, Kelly said he has helped the borough benefit from more than $40 million in grants and insurance monies after Super Storm Sandy for economic recovery. That included seawall repairs, two new borough buildings, bulkheading and streetscape and beautification projects, he said. SEA BRIGHT – A newmayor will soon be named inSea Bright after seven yearsof leadership under currentMayor Dina Long. Long has endorsed current council president Brian Kelly for mayor. Kelly, a Republican, has lived in Sea Bright since 2000 and has been visiting the community since the 1970s. Kelly is the father of two children. He has been on the council for 15 years and served as council president for three. He said he is “always willing to assist a friend, neighbor and the community,” and added that he is a good listener and has “favorable understanding of what can go wrong with a proposed activity, which if considered in advance will typically minimize errors and oversight.” Kevin P. Birdsall Kelly, the president of Sea Bright Solar since 2003, said the opportunity to work with so many Sea Bright residents and business owners has been “a priceless, satisfying experience” that he hopes to continue as mayor. Noting his love for Sea Bright, Birdsall said he wants to run for re-election to keep things in check, especially overdevelopment. He voiced disapproval of high-rise development similar to that of Long Branch or Asbury Park. “ We really cannot support it. We’re a barrier island.” Currently the borough’s ordinance allows for a height limitof38feet.“We have a lot of areas in this town that could at any minute be sold to a developer and could just be overdeveloped,” citing any of the five marinas in town. His big concern right now, however, is flood mitigation. One way to do that is to keep the water in the river for as long as possible. Birdsall is also looking into ways to best keep flooding out of the streets and out of the sewer systems. Additionally, three candidates are vying for two open council seats in the November election: incumbent Independent candidate Kevin P. Birdsall, former councilman and Republican John M. Lamia Jr. and Democratic candidate Samuel A. Catalano. Candidate Lamia has been a Sea Bright resident for 13 years where he lives with his wife and four children. He has been involved with the YMCA as a community sports director, as a volunteer with the Sea Brighters Embracing Action and as a member of the Sea Bright Dunes Committee. He has 43 years of experience in problem solving and service delivery education, he said, nine with Exxon Corp. and 34 with Siemens, now ATOS Inc. Candidate Catalano has owned a home in Sea Bright for three years and has been in the area for about 10 years. He is the owner of Amerifence LLC and deals with large government contracts, which he said would be beneficial to borough projects and the future of the town. Kelly said some of the main concerns facing Sea Bright are the need to keep up revenues to of fset property taxes, manage borough operation costs for efficiency, finish bulkhead work, flood mitigation and public access along the downtown riverside, address the onerous regional school tax levy and to continually improve effective storm response. He also said he wanted to see the completion of new municipal facilities, a new Master Plan, storm readiness procedures, a Hazard Mitigation Plan and more. As a fisherman and boatowner, Catalano said he wantsto run for council because heloves the town and wants tokeep it the “best beach townit can be.” Democratic mayoral challenger Jack Sanders has lived in Sea Bright for five years with his wife and son. He is originally from Cleveland, Ohio, and said moving to Sea Bright was a big step for him after living in the industrial Midwest. Running for one of the two open council seats, the incumbent Birdsall has lived in Sea Bright since 2012. He has worked in several fields including road and bridge construction, welding and corporate America. “You name it, I’ve done it,” he said. He has been a council member for about three years and said his background is helpful because he understands the functionality of what needs to be done in the borough, especially with construction projects. He hopes to continue Long’s momentum and all that she’s done since Super Storm Sandy. He feels some of the main concerns facing Sea Bright are flooding and traffic and he has been working with current councilmen Charles H. Rooney III and Marc A. Leckstein to brain- storm ideas to make things “run smoother.” He also hopes to keep taxes as low as possible with ratables.last_img read more
