Just one week after the general election, the U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to hear a case on whether the Affordable Care Act will remain law. 

The administration of President Donald Trump has lined up with a dozen Republican state attorneys general to dismantle the country’s healthcare policy. Those arguing in favor of the healthcare act are attorneys general from Democratic-leaning states.

This is one reason Republicans are champing at the bit to fill the seat on the high court created by the recent passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
