Before the end of the month the U.S. Supreme Court will make several ruling that will directly impact Texas – one could upend the Fair Housing Act, another could make same sex marriage legal and another could basically end the Affordable Care Act in Texas by ruling that the Federal government can’t provide health insurance subsidies to states that didn’t set up their own ACA exchanges.

That case is King v. Burwell. Ron Pollack, executive director of Families USA says if the court rules against Obamacare then over 800 thousand Texas could lose their health insurance.
