Another battle won: Obamacare has survived — again. Yesterday, the Supreme Court saved the health care law that will define Obama’s administration for generations to come. The justices ruled 6 to 3 that subsidies for people purchasing insurance on a federal exchange are legal.
It staved off a major political showdown and a mad scramble to prevent millions from losing coverage in the 34 states that don’t have their own exchanges. But Washington, Republicans say this is not the end of their unrelenting challenges against the Affordable Care Act.
Presidential eulogy: Today’s remembrance for Clementa Pinckney, the reverend and state senator gunned down in a racist massacre in a South Carolina church last week, will look something like a state funeral. Hillary Clinton, House Speaker John Boehner and Vice President Joe Biden will attend. And President Obama, who knew Pinckney, will deliver his eulogy. The President is known for his eloquence, so his tribute to Pinckney could become a memorable oratory for a nation that has long struggled with race.
Nine missing: A small plane carrying a pilot and eight passengers from a cruise ship is believed to have crashed in Ketchikan, Alaska, on Thursday. There is no official word yet on the condition of those on the plane, but a private helicopter pilot reported sighting wreckage to Alaska authorities. It was on a shore excursion, sold through Holland America Line, when the accident happened about near Ella Lake. The United States Coast Guard and local search and rescue teams are en route to the accident site.
