7.22.14: Courts disagree on health law
WASHINGTON (AP) — There are two conflicting court rulings today on the new health care law. A ruling from an appeals court in Washington could mean the loss of subsidies that help millions of low and middle-income people afford their premiums. That court said the financial aid can only be provided in states with their own insurance markets. But a court in Virginia came to the opposite conclusion. The White House says consumers will keep getting financial aid for their premiums as the administration appeals the decision that went against it.
