The Supreme Court has upheld most of the Affordable Care Act.

First, let's run down the basics of the ruling:

  • By 2014, All Americans will be required to buy health insurance or pay a hefty tax.
  • Low to middle income families can get subsidies for their premiums. 
  • insurance companies can no longer deny coverage or increase premiums for people with pre-existing health problems.

To get one perspective, WFAA talked with Dr. Merrill Matthews. He is part of the Institute for Policy Innovation, a conservative think tank based in Lewsiville. He gives his take on what the ruling means.
