Final nail in the Obamacare coffin coming? Supremes to hear


Talk about the ultimate feel good moment for the week? Taking down Obamacare would be a super “twofer.” Knocking Obama’s socks off on Tuesday’s election, and then taking down his “signature” achievement. I am no legal wizard but this little sentence seems to make it clear to me:

The legal dispute centers on a four-word statutory phrase. The law says people qualify for tax credits when they buy insurance on an online marketplace “established by the state.”

Now if Roberts can swallow his pride and accept what a nonsensical vote he made that gave us this monstrosity, and the NSA doesn’t have a whole lot on him, we might just do it. Decision should could out in June. Here we go:

The U.S. Supreme Court agreed to consider a challenge to the subsidies that are a linchpin of President Barack Obama’s health-care overhaul, accepting a case that suddenly puts the law under a new legal cloud.

Two years after upholding much of the law by a single vote, the justices today said they will hear a Republican-backed appeal targeting tax credits that have helped more than 4 million people afford insurance.

A ruling blocking those credits might unravel the law, making other provisions ineffective and potentially destabilizing insurance markets in much of the country. The high court’s decision to hear the case comes days before the start of the law’s second open-enrollment season Nov. 15. A decision will come by June.

The justices will consider an appeal filed by four Virginia residents seeking to block the subsidies in 36 states. The appeal says the Obama administration is engaging in a “gross distortion” of the law’s wording by granting billions of dollars in tax credits to people in those states.

    I don’t have much hope that this particular crop of SCOTUS justices will reverse the previous ObamaCare ruling. But it might happen. The SCOTUS does sometimes blow with the political winds.

      That would really be swell. The NSA would have a lot of big stuff on him then.

    It seems pretty clear that the federal exchange cannot give out subsidies, especially when you have people on video admitting this was done on purpose to force the states into setting up exchanges. I hope Roberts does the right thing this time around.
