BREAKING NEWS: A federal appeals court rules 2-1 that subsidies that helped people buy insurance at healthcare.gov are illegal.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday threw out a federal regulation that implements key subsidies that are vital to President Barack Obama's healthcare overhaul. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit accepted one of the main legal challenges to the policy by conservatives opposed to an expansion of the federal government.

Gov. Scott Walker's campaign feels vindicated after comments by John Doe prosecutor

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Scott Walker's campaign said the Republican governor was vindicated Thursday, when a special prosecutor said he didn't mean to imply that campaign laws were broken during the state's recall elections.

The attorney for Francis Schmitz, the special prosecutor in the now-halted John Doe probe, said he merely wanted to keep investigating whether GOP candidates illegally coordinated with conservative groups in the recall votes against Walker and Republican state senators.

Schmitz wrote in John Doe records released last week that the scope of a "criminal scheme" was expansive -- including violations of multiple election laws such as filing false campaign reports.

However, the lawyer for the special John Doe prosecutor said they were not points of conclusions -- and Walker was never subpoenaed or was not a target of the current Doe probe.

For the last week, the Republican Walker has faulted the media's reporting of the documents, saying that two previous judicial rulings cleared him.

One ruling at least temporarily halted the 2-year-old John Doe, and that's being appealed. The other found a lack of probable cause that crimes were committed.

Also Thursday, the governor's camp called on Democrat Mary Burke to pull her latest campaign ad -- which faulted Walker for attacking her the day after the Doe documents came out.
