Which is better? A pizza or a pizza dough?

By John Sifferman,CNN|December 16, 2019| 0 CommentsOn The Road – November 14, 2019The day the US Supreme Court decided to take up the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the nation’s largest health insurer announced it would discontinue all but one of its insurance plans in the US.
The announcement was met with a chorus of protests from members of Congress and the public alike.
While it was the second time that the ACA was up for court review, this time around the public and insurers were furious.
What are the legal consequences of the Supreme Court’s decision?
The answer is very simple.
The Supreme Court has decided that a court order that requires insurers to cover certain preventive care and prescription drugs will not be enforceable.
In other words, the ACA will remain on the books, and insurers will continue to be allowed to continue to sell policies that are designed to make it difficult or impossible for people to obtain necessary preventive services and drugs.
The other major decision, the Supreme Board on Employment Policies (SBEP), has ruled that states can continue to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, and that businesses may not be required to pay for contraceptive coverage.
So, yes, the public will continue protesting, but the ACA has been upheld by the Supreme Courts.
The ACA, the healthcare law passed in 2010, has been a huge success.
The country has seen an unprecedented decline in the number of uninsured, and more and more people are choosing to sign up for coverage through their employer.
The public and Congress have been in a bit of a stalemate about how to deal with the ACA since the Supreme court ruling.
Both parties have had to make decisions on how to fix it, and both sides are likely to have their opinions shaped by what the Supreme law has meant to their constituents.
But if you’re a member of Congress, the next step is to take action.
As of December 14, the US House of Representatives is expected to vote on legislation to repeal the ACA, which is expected by some to be introduced by Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI).
In response to this bill, the American Health Care Act, also known as the American Care Act is being considered in the Senate.
Both bills are designed specifically to remove a number of federal requirements and regulations on health insurance, including the requirement that insurers cover a range of preventive care services, including HIV testing, mammograms, contraception, and cancer screenings.
However, if the bill passes, insurance companies will still have to provide coverage for a range a different set of preventive services, like STI testing, Pap smears, and cervical cancer screenings, as well as prescription drugs like birth control and contraception.
In the Senate, the bill would also remove a requirement that health insurance plans cover birth control, and it would eliminate a requirement to provide a “minimum essential health benefit” (MAB) — a health care provision that means that an insurance company must pay for certain types of preventive health care.
Both these bills are not likely to be signed by the President, but their passage would provide a huge boost for millions of Americans who have lost their health insurance under the ACA.
The American Health Law will likely become law before the end of the year.
