The Supreme Court plans to hear oral arguments one week after the election on the future of the Affordable Care Act. A group of Republican state attorneys general and the Trump administration have argued that the law's individual mandate is unconstitutional and there are legal grounds for striking down the law in its entirety.
"What matters most is that health care is on the ballot and is in front of the Supreme Court," Delaware Sen. Chris Coons, a Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, told CNN's Wolf Blitzer, noting that the health care law protects those seeking health insurance from discrimination based on pre-existing conditions -- which will now include health complications for those who contracted Covid-19."We know that Judge Barrett has made statements disparaging the Affordable Care Act, disparaging the decision that upheld the Affordable Care Act," Coons said during an interview on "The Situation Room" Friday evening, "and I think this is a significant concern for millions of average Americans in the middle of a pandemic that doesn't seem to be going away any time soon."12 AnswersPolitics17 hours ago

Why is Michael Jordan more popular than other GOATs like Wayne Gretzky and Babe Ruth and Pele and Muhammad Ali?Favourite answer:
First, note how that fame was gained.....note those who are still propping up that fame today...
Notice that the answers are the same?
For all his greatness as a player (and he was, in my opinion, one of the greatest American athletes of all time), his "cross-over" fame was very much a result of the growing influence of the mega-media corporations and their partnership with other mega-corporations.
When Jordan first turned pro in 1984, there were over 200 independent media companies in the USA alone.... By the time Jordan won his final championship with the Bulls in 1998, six mega-media companies controlled over 90% of everything seen, heard and read in print, on radio and on TV...
By controlling what Americans watched, these companies controlled what Americans bought...and companies like Nike turned Jordan into a full-line "lifestyle." It wasn't just about T-shirts and jerseys, people wanted to wear what Mike wore on the golf course and to the supermarket...they wanted his sunglasses and his Kangol hats.
Jordan established the concept of "branding" now common among athletes that represent themselves first, their endorsed products second, their agencies third and their teams a distant fourth.....maybe....
And that part brings us to the "why do they STILL push him" question... Look around at what the league, ESPN and the nature of "celebrity athletes" has become. By pushing "style" for decades they have completely run out of substance...and the vapid, image-based culture of today simply cannot connect to today's athletes in the same way.
So Nike and ESPN push Jordan because Jordan continues to sell their products....and one reason his name still sells is because he had the game to back it up.4 AnswersBasketball1 day ago

There's 190 million whites. Half of them are homosexuals and feminists.
There's 40 million blacks. Most of them are in prison, on parole, on drugs, and committing crimes. They usually sell drugs on the side and increase costs of medical care, and all that.
There's 40 million Hispanics. Most of them are construction workers that sell drugs on the side. They help spread the opiod epidemic, run up the cost of medical care and increase the crime rates indirectly through their drug dealing businesses.
Then there's the Asians. They're mainly quiet, work hard, study hard, do good in school, and get lucrative engineering and tech jobs.106 AnswersPolitics1 day ago
