  • Obamacare Back Before Supreme Court

    Congressional Republicans are proposing long and short-term alternatives to ObamaCare as the Supreme Court begins hearing oral arguments Wednesday in a case that has the potential to unravel the health care law.
    The plaintiffs, four Virginia residents, argue that Americans who bought insurance through the federal ObamaCare exchange are not entitled to subsidies because the law says only those who bought policies in state exchanges are eligible.
    At least 5.5 million Americans last year bought insurance on the federal exchange and received the subsidies.
    Both sides in the case -- known as King v. Burwell -- generally agree that if the high court decides that millions of recipients are no longer eligible, they likely will no longer be able to afford insurance under ObamaCare and exit the system.
    However, whether their departure would topple the entire health care law remains a matter of debate ahead of the expected high court ruling by June.
    Last week, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell said nullifying the subsidies would cause "massive damage to our health care system" and that the administration would have no way to fix it.

    Just like the first time it'll be politics not legal reasoning which wins. Legally it's an open and shut case, just read the words. Politically the libs can't let it go down.

      I disagree. This is one pile of that isn't going to just go away. Too many people paying way too much money, and they all vote.

        Somebody has to pay for all those "subsidies".

          Interesting you should say that, because there was a discussion today about the negative effect the growing welfare class is having on those programs, since none of them pay much if any taxes, and of course, the "negative tax refund" now being paid to millions of illegals. More money required from fewer productive taxpayers...

          Somebody does, indeed, "have to pay for it", but we're running out of those "somebodies".

            Speaking of negative affects:

            Since passing, the number of people in the US without health coverage has remained higher than before Obamacare went into affect.

            Plan costs have continued to rise substantially.

            These will only get worse not better with time. Bottom line is there is no reason to support or want Obamacare unless you are a welfare bum wanting "free" medical coverage.

              Welcome to Obamarica, the New Socialist State. Obama is looking at executive orders to raise taxes in order to pay for his humongous Federal give-away programs, of which this will turn into the largest of them all, surpassing Social Security and medicare.
