House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Unveils New Bill Expanding ‘Obamacare’

On Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi unveiled a plan to expand “Obamacare,” even as the Trump administration is about to file arguments in a Supreme Court to strike it down. Pelosi announced an upcoming floor vote on her measure.

However on Thursday, the Trump administration is expected to file papers with the Supreme Court arguing that the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional. Pelosi wants her bill on the House floor Monday.

Obama’s law has grown more popular since Trump’s unsuccessful effort to repeal it in 2017. With COVID-19 cases drastically rising in major states such as Texas, Florida and California, millions of workers who have lost coverage in the economic shutdown to contain the virus can rely on the health law as a backup.
