SCOTUS upholds Obamacare subsidies


Recommended Posts

`

This challenge was always absurd...the best way to sum it up is pretty simple

 

"Without the federal subsidies . . . the exchanges would not operate as Congress intended and may not operate at all."

 

Anthony Scalia...in his 2012 dissent in the original ACA ruling.

Let's face it. All of the states are eventually going to be on the federal exchange. Covered California, among others, is having financial problems already. The feds have the ability to print endless amounts of money (read, borrow from our children and grandchildren).

 

The government is enormous and getting bigger by the hour, and this ruling simply helps it along.

There is a reasonable argument whether the judicial branch is there to correct the mistakes of the legislative.  Granted the decision relied upon ideological beliefs of the ACA instead.  Scalia's quip about the creation of SCOTUS-Care was a decent one. Funny thing is that this decision works out for both sides. The POTUS keeps his legacy project, Republicans aren't blamed for the mess this could have caused and they still have the ACA boogeyman to rail against. Justice Roberts seems to be a pragmatist so I imagine this was the deciding factor in his and perhaps Kennedy's vote.

Read, as long as Ebola is covered.  I recall you FOX newsing us into a global pandemic where we would never have children or grandchildren.  Whew, it's getting better for us all.
