Small Business Group Asks High Court To Overturn Healthcare Law

0 Shares

The attempt by the NFIB came as another national precedent may be set, as an Arizona woman is fighting for healthcare for her husband, who happens to be an illegal immigrant. A group of small businesses opposed to the heathcare overhaul that took place in Washington is asking the Supreme Court to strike down the entire law, The Associated Press reported.

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) is filing an appeal of a portion of the recent ruling given by a Federal court in Atlanta, which struck down the individual insurance requirement. Leaders from the group want to get rid of the rest of the law, not just the part that was ruled upon previously.

“When you talk to our members and other small-business owners about what is the biggest problem they’re facing, they say uncertainty,” Karen Harned, executive director of the NFIB’s legal division, told the AP. “When you ask what, one of first answers is the healthcare law.”

The attempt by the NFIB came as another national precedent may be set. An Arizona woman is fighting for healthcare for her husband, who is an illegal alien.

According to Fox News, Evelyn Saenz-Cornelio is fighting to get the Arizona Medicaid program to cover her husband’s $120,000 medical bill, despite the fact that he is not a citizen.
