U.S. Supreme Court

Today’s Supreme Court ruling on the Affordable Care Act means tax credits are still available for people who buy health insurance on the federal exchange.

Rhode Island set up its own exchange, HealthSource RI. And because of that, the ruling would not have affected the Ocean State either way. Rhode Islanders who qualify for subsidies to help pay for health insurance will continue to receive them.

Rhode Island’s two U.S. House members, Democrats David Cicilline and Jim Langevin, will both vote against President Obama’s plan to `fast track’ the Trans-Pacific Partnership when the issue comes before the House, which  is expected this afternoon.

``Any agreement that promotes fast track trade to advance the TPP without through review and congressional input is a bad deal for Rhode Island  workers,’’ Cicilline said in a statement.

The temperature is rising, the General Assembly's budget vote is drawing closer, and a PawSox deal still hangs in the balance. So thanks for stopping by for my weekly column.
