Fox files brief in support of Obamacare

HELENA — In a position at odds with the Trump administration, Montana Attorney General Tim Fox and his Ohio counterpart told a federal appeals court Monday that the Affordable Care Act — “Obamacare” — should not be thrown out entirely, although part of the law is unconstitutional.

Fox and Ohio Attorney General David Yost, both Republicans, said in a filing with the 5th U.S. Court of Appeals that a federal judge’s decision to invalidate the entire 2010 health-care law is judicial overreach that could set a dangerous precedent.
