As you know, there's a mechanism of Obamacare that congressional Republicans have decried as an "unconstitutional bailout" for years but, now that they're responsible for what happens next, they've apparently had a change of heart on unconstitutional bailouts.
Facing the very real consequences of ending the program, Republicans now say they will fund the mechanism of Obamacare known as Risk Corridors that redistributes funds from one insurer to others that cover extraordinarily sick patients.
This particular subsidy, which covers out-of-pocket health care costs for low-income participants, has been a GOP target since 2014 when House Republicans went to court to argue the White House funded it unconstitutionally. Republicans were exultant last May when the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia ruled in their favor, even though the payments were allowed to continue pending an appeal.
If congressional Republicans plan to fund the program themselves, it's not clear what that means for their legal case against it.
Is it still unconstitutional, or nah?
