Alabama Attorney General Praises Court Ruling

Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange is praising a federal appeals court ruling against an important provision in President Barack Obama's health care law. The divided court ruled today that federal subsidies to help millions of low and middle-income people pay insurance premiums apply only in states that set up their own insurance markets under the law. A federal court in Virginia unanimously ruled the opposite way. Alabama is among the states that didn't set up an exchange, and the Washington decision means residents may no longer be eligible for federal aid to make insurance more affordable.
