1. The courts played the role of "rights protector" is in the case of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) v. Sebelius where on June 28, 2012, the Supreme Court determined the expansion of state Medicaid programs mandated in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) unconstitutional (Cornell Law School, n.d.). In this landmark decision the Supreme Court heard the appeal from the NFIB regarding their constitutional rights to decide whether to expand their Medicaid coverage to those individuals who fell below the eligibility status for subsidies granted in the ACA but did not meet the financial qualifications for Medicaid eligibility as it was previously established. The Supreme Court in this case protected the constitutional rights of the states and therefore forced the ACA to be amended to not offer additional funding for states choosing to expand rather than completely revoking federal funds that had already been granted to the states.
