The Supreme Court will decide the fate of Obamacare - but not until after the 2020 election.

On Monday, the Court agreed to hear an appeal of a lower-court ruling that declared the 2010 Affordable Care Act partly unconstitutional.

However, the Court's decision likely won't come until sometime next year, well after the 2020 elections. 

Thanks to Donald Trump, pre-existing condition protections are on the chopping block this fall,” Senator Ron Wyden, Democrat of Oregon, said in a statement shortly after the court’s announcement on Monday. “Americans who count on their health care will hear loud and clear who is fighting to secure protections for pre-existing conditions, and who is trying to take them away.”

The Supreme Court previously upheld the Affordable Care Act in 2012

Even presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden is speaking out on this issue.

“This case is a stark, life-and-death reminder how much is at stake this fall and what’s on the ballot right now: Democrats must nominate the candidate whom they know can beat Trump and bring along the Senate, to ensure we can protect our health care for generations to come,” Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. said in a statement.
