This group might have a tough time getting together a golf foursome—much less one for crippling Obamacare.
New reports are raising questions about whether four people pursuing a Supreme Court case challenging Obamacare subsidies in much of the country actually have the legal right to bring that case.
The questions about two of those people relate to whether they were eligible or received health coverage from the Department of Veterans Affairs. The third person reportedly gave a short-term motel as her address in Virginia when she joined the suit, and the fourth person reportedly projected income for 2014 that exceeds what her employer has said they would have paid her.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the issues could undermine the legal standing that the plaintiffs claim in their joint lawsuit.
And the fourth person in that quartet of would-be slayers of a large chunk of the Affordable Care Act reportedly doesn't actually understand that if their case is successful that millions of Obamacare customers likely would be unable to afford their current health insurance plans and would stop having coverage.
"I don't want things to be more difficult for people," that woman, Virginia resident Brenda Levy, told Mother Jones magazine. "I don't like the idea of throwing people off their health insurance."
Levy, 64, also told Mother Jones, "I don't know how I got on this case. I haven't done a single thing legally. I'm gonna ask them how they found me."
Levy, who is a substitute teacher, reportedly was unaware that there is no backup plan that would replace the insurance plans lost by people who could no longer afford them if her suit prevailed at the Supreme Court.
