The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has likely survived its last wholesale legal challenge now that the U.S. Supreme Court on Dec. 2 declined to hear an appeal by Liberty University contending that the law’s employer mandate is unconstitutional.
The church-affiliated university in Virginia had argued that Congress lacks the authority to require employers to provide health insurance benefits for employees.
The Justices did not comment on why they turned aside the appeal.
