(Worthy News) – The Supreme Court will hear a constitutional challenge to the Obama-era Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

On Wednesday, the high court announced it would hear arguments in California v. Texas in its fall session, a case filed by a group of Republican-leaning states to challenge the law’s individual mandate that penalizes those who don’t purchase insurance. Arguments are planned for Nov. 10, one week after the general election.

The lawsuit contends that after the Republican-controlled Congress lowered the individual mandate penalty in the law to zero, effectively eliminating its effect, it could no longer be considered a constitutional tax imposed by Congress. The lawsuit further argued that once the individual mandate is found unconstitutional, the rest of the law, which guarantees coverage for approximately 20 million people under its provisions, must be discarded.
