It´s time for White House to start sweating
over legal challenge to Obamacare subsidies

Washington Examiner [DC], by Philip Klein

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 3/26/2014 5:25:58 AM

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

This White House doesn´t sweat any ruling or verdict that is handed down. It views this in the same way it does any law it deems to be an obstruction to its central goal- chaos and ruin in the pursuit of power.

I think Roberts will have to re-write Zippycare again to get past this one.

The issue is very simple. Either Congress meant what it said (subsidies only for state exchanges), or it didn´t. It would take Congress a couple of hours to draft an amendment to clarify the language. The fact that Congress has not fixed the law is highly significant.

The function of the Court is to uphold the law, not to rewrite it. And if the Court does it´s job, Obamacare goes poooofff in the night. With any luck, "progressivism" does too.

Agree with #4. The law is what the law says. This is a perfect example of arrogant judicial activism. The judges are trying to interpret what the Democrats were actually ´thinking´ when they wrote this. The rest of us already know the answer to that question.

Judge Edwards, a Clinton appointee, proceeds to intentionally distort the clear language of the law regarding state exchanges--as stated 7 times in the law.
This biased lefty has no business being a judge.

Confidence in the court system is eroding. Ordinary people can interpret the law too and what they read versus what the court reads is slowly becoming a gap. In time this gap will be so wide that the people will have no confidence in the judicial system.

#6 is correct in more ways than one. Bribes or blackmail is being levied against judges to ensure the "right" judicial decision is reached.

Oh dear, the tears are flowing from laughter as I read from the headline...the White House is sweating bullets. Please. Are you kidding me? Obama and this administration has thumbed their noses at the Constitution on numerous occasions and now you want me to believe they are afraid? This administration is confident in its ability to shape the narrative, influence the Courts, and win the day. Why if it even looks like Obamacare is at risk, the establishment Republicans will ride to the rescue if the courts don´t do it themselves. Chief Justice Roberts did, after all, save Obamacare with a few strokes of his pen. Not a lot of confidence in the powers that be will do the right thing.

There frankly is no need to rely on a dry ´law is the law´ argument. Liberal justices don´t like that and will use it as an excuse for legislating from the bench.
There is plenty of evidence from the discussions of the time. State exchange costs were outside 0bamacare costs, enabling the total cost of the bill to be shown as deficit neutral. That is why no subsidy costs were loaded on to Federal exchanges. This was an almost risk proof bargain for Congress because the original bill gave the Feds the authority to withhold Medicaid funds from States that refused. Offering them a Hobson´s choice. In the convoluted decision written by Roberts this authority was correctly thrown out as unconstitutional. Now the thirty six non-cooperating states are home free. THIS is the crux of the problem. I am surprised was not brought up.

In school you learn that 1 pear + 1 apple = 2 items. But in today´s judicial system, in order to appease the Obama Administration, they interpret this simple equation in this way - 1 apple + 1 PAIR = 3 items / and they justify this sleight of hand by saying " this is what the law MEANT, it was just worded wrong " - therefore, we can rule on what the lawmakers meant, not what the law actually states- in my opinion, this is what has been going on for almost 5 years. The Supreme Court is not ruling on law, but on what they THINK the lawmakers meant and their own personal feelings/agenda. ESPECIALLY, the two females that Obama appointed. They are blatantly, openly biased, towards their own agenda. I have no respect for these people and that is sad. They are NOT appointed to make new laws. ( My opinions).

FTA "If Congress didn’t legislate something clearly, it was really the court’s job to fix the statute".

And here I have been thinking all of my life that the courts were only supposed to interpret the law, not write them or "correct" them. And if there was something not clear in a law, it was supposed to be returned to the legislature for correction. Not have a judge make it what his personal viewpoint might be.

By the court granting the IRS the ability to write law, our tyrants in black robes are gutting the Constitution. This Carter appointed Judge should be disbarred for being so patently biased in favor of anything Obama.

These clowns need to be reminded that NO ONE COULD READ THE BILL before it was voted on! How could anyone know what was in it, much less what it meant of where it came from?! These Judges should be asking the question, "Who actually wrote this ambiguous ever-morphing piece of crap?!"

With legislation, the courts are supposed to give effect to the language of the statute, if possible. If it is not what was intended, Congress can amend it. Of course, with the House now in Republican hands, Congress no longer intends what the Democrats shoved through back in 2010. This shows why major legislation needs bipartisan support--especially legislation that no one has read all the way through. There are always errors and things that need to be corrected and it can´t be done if the bill is too one-sided.

#20-you state that as a fact and it is not. Even assuming that his children had an Irish birthparent, they could have been legally adopted. For example, if the birthparent had dual citizenship or gave birth in another country where the baby gained dual citizenship. Also, it is only rumor and speculation about the adoptions. The likely reason Roberts decided as he did is that he didn´t want the Supreme Court to be blamed for the failure of Obamacare. Right or wrong, his likely concern was the Court´s credibility, not about being blackmailed.

That judge Edwards is a jerk. He is not his role to pull an Elijah Cummings drama routine, to scope ulterior motives(gut Obamacare). Kick him to the curb. The democrats screwed up on the subsidy issue: now we DO know what is in the bill and is severely flawed. Another ridiculous Roberts´ action, activist, to democrats rescue? We will see. The dems need lots of help, just like Obama did his whole miserable life.

#24 if you are right, then Roberts need not be worried the court will be blamed for the failure of Obamacare. Its now freaking obvious to anyone paying the slightest bit of attention that the law is fatally flawed and cannot work. So if they rule against it now, nobody with integrity would blame the court. Heck I bet there are alot of Democrats up for re-election that would like to Zippycare tossed out at this point.

We´ll see but I think they have something on Roberts.

Perhaps the only way to destroy the Democrat socialised health care dream was to allow it to self destruct in the market place while ruled a tax.
This scheme has been the progressive dream agenda since Britian went socialist and uses health care to dominate the citizens.
They would never give up that control dream unless it threatened their very ingrained concepts that they are entitled elites with the right to rule the commoners.
35 years ago it was predicted that in about the 30 years those elitists would be removed once they went too far.
Has too far arrived?

Seventeen percent of people in the United States say immigration is the nation’s top problem, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That´s up from 5 percent in June, and is the highest number Gallup has registered for immigration since 2006, when 15 percent said it was the nation´s most pressing problem. Gallup’s new survey found immigration is virtually tied with “dissatisfaction with government” as the nation´s top problem. The economy and unemployment rank below immigration and “dissatisfaction with government" as top problems, the new poll found. Only 8 percent now rate healthcare as the top problem, down from 16 percent in January, when

How would you feel if someone promised to give you a car, and then reneged on that pledge? That’s how all Americans should feel when it comes to ObamaCare -- because Barack Obama’s failed and discredited campaign promise to lower health insurance premiums has cost the average American family an amount equal to the price of many new cars. During his 2008 campaign, one of then-Senator Obama’s most audacious promises was that his health plan would reduce premiums by $2,500 for the average family. His repeatedly made his pledge on videotape; you can view those promises here. But health insurance premiums

The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin
