June 28 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on Medicaid eligibility may have given states rights advocates an opportunity to challenge other statutes, according to Tom Goldstein, founder of SCOTUSblog and a High Court litigator. The court found that Congress can't take away all of a state's federal Medicaid money if they do not comply with the health care law's conditions. Tying compliance under one statute to the loss of other, unrelated money is a frequent technique Congress uses, Goldstein tells Bloomberg Law's Spencer Mazyck. "The net, long-term historic effect may be, ironically, very pro states rights," Goldstein says.
