Calif. Atty Gen. Bonta was leading force in fight that saved Obamacare

Last week, the United States Supreme Court ruled 7-2 in favor of keeping the core of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, intact.


That decision resolved more-than-a-decade-long Democrat-versus-Republican legal tug-of-war about the federal government’s role in health care coverage.


At the end of that grueling battle, California Attorney General Rob Bonta, a former Assemblymember from Oakland, emerged a quiet victor.


In March, when Gov. Newsom appointed Bonta California’s 34th Attorney General, he stepped into a respected and carefully built legacy of successful legal advocacy and litigation against Conservative foes that his predecessor Xavier Becerra left behind. Pres. Biden appointed Becerra Health and Human Services Secretary.
