GOP fails again, Obamacare is here to stay! After some 70 failed attempts at Congressional repeal of increasingly popular Affordable Care Act of 2010, Supreme Court rejects legal challenge for third time, by 7-2 vote; centerpiece of GOP demagogy for last decade wiped out. Reactionary faction of high court splits, with only Alito and Gorsuch voting against ACA; Mitch McConnell's strategy for court is in crisis; Helped along by ACA expansion, Medicaid grows by 9 million to top 80.5 million, a new "high water mark".
Next task is passing full infrastructure bill.
Biden's re-invigoration of free world alliances while opening dialogue with Russia is substantial achievement; GOP slanders of Biden refuted by Putin.
Best wishes for Juneteenth!
