The Texas Federal Judge Reed O’Connor of the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Texas, has been trying to get rid of Obamacare for some time….
His ruling (One Judge in Texas!)would stop preventive care across the country for things including services like screenings for heart disease, pap smears and tobacco cessation services….
The America Healthcare Act /Obamacare HAS been upheld (against this guy) by the US Supreme Court from challenges…..

“It might be that tomorrow, a woman might wake up and find that her mammogram is not covered,” Mr. Gostin said, adding, “I think we forget what it was like before the Affordable Care Act, where we had to pay and it was unaffordable for basic primary health care services.”
The Biden administration is likely to appeal the ruling and ask for a stay of the injunction. The White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, said the Justice Department and the Department of Health and Human Services were reviewing the decision….

Thursday’s ruling comes just a week after the 13th anniversary of President Barack Obama’s signing the measure into law. In 2012, the Supreme Court upheld the bulk of the law but struck down its requirement that states expand Medicaid. In 2018, Judge O’Connor ruled that the entire law was unconstitutional, but the Supreme Court later overruled him….
