The Republicans that is the case he argued, therefore, that there is no longer a legal basis for the decision of the Supreme court in 2012.
Within the Republican party has been around for much longer opposition to Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act. The former president succeeded to that law in 2010 to get approved.
