Democrats in the dark on post-SCOTUS planning
Congressional Democrats who wrote Barack Obama's healthcare plan into law say they're getting virtually no guidance from the White House on how to deal with the fallout if the Supreme Court overturns any part of the law. There have been no meetings, no phone calls and no paper exchanged with the administration, according to Democratic lawmakers and staff. So, with the health insurance of tens of millions of Americans and their own political careers and legacies hanging in the balance, Democratic leaders don't have any sense of a battle plan if the Supreme Court rules against any parts of the healthcare law.
