After a federal judge in Texas issued a decision in which he deemed the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional, U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander said he was skeptical that U.S. Supreme Court would agree, The Tennessean reports. He said that if such a thing were to happen, however, that he is confident any new federal law to replace it would “continue to protect Americans with pre-existing conditions.” Attorney General Herbert Slatery issued a statement today clarifying that “nothing will change until the appeals are final” and issued a challenge to lawmakers, saying “it is up to Congress to provide lawful solutions to healthcare coverage, not just debate or campaign on it.”
