Supreme Court rejects case challenging Affordable Care Act

The Supreme Court has declined to hear another case challenging the Affordable Care Act, denying a petition for a writ of certiorari in the case of Sissel v. Department of Health and Human Services. In doing so, the Court let stand a lower court ruling that dismissed the case, which claims the ACA violates the constitutional requirement that bills raising taxes must originate in the House, according to the Associated Press. The complaint was filed on behalf of small-business owner Matt Sissel, with backing from the Pacific Legal Foundation (PLF), the AP adds.

"It is very disappointing that the Court has chosen not to hear this important case, because the justices were being asked to uphold and enforce an important constitutional protection for all taxpayers," PLF Principal Attorney Timothy Sandefur said in a statement about the Court's decision.
