Obamacare in chaos as federal court
strikes down tax credits for low-income
Americans who buy insurance in 36 states –*

Daily Mail [UK] & Associated Press, by Francesca Chambers

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/22/2014 6:37:25 PM

The future of Obamacare was uncertain today after a federal court in Washington, D.C. struck down tax subsidies for Americans who bought insurance through federally-funded exchanges. Within hours the same policy was held up by another court, setting up a Supreme Court showdown. The cases revolve around four words in the Affordable Care Act, which says the tax credits are available to people who enroll through an exchange ´established by the state.´ The rulings affect consumers who purchased their coverage through the federal insurance marketplace--or exchange--that serves 36 states. If the first ruling is upheld by the nation´s

Virginia. I told you........I hope and pray the decision of DC Court is upheld. But IF it has to go to the Supreme Court.....many will die before it comes up and is decided on and God only knows what Justice Roberts will do. Obama will pay him off again.

Shocking that Judges can be so lacking in basic reading comprehension.
Subsidies for policies purchased through STATE exchanges...NOT Federal exchanges.
Most States chose not to join exchanges.

´Wholeness and coherence´ are weasel words intended to overthrow constitutional governance. Administration of the law of the land is not pizza delivery. The SCOTUS will have to step in to stop this nonsense.

No matter the "intent" of the law, the wording says something different. THAT means Constitutionally it is up to those that wrote the law to make changes. The Administration well knows that without a majority of Democrats in BOTH house of Congress Obamacare stands little chance of surviving. Of course, the challenge will go to the Supreme Court and they may well make up another new law just as they did the previous time. They appear unable to separate themselves from the other branches of Government.

The law plainly says "state exchanges". If Roberts is consistent he will accept those words as written and the issue will go to Congress.

OTOH, Roberts sometimes seems to believe using the word "tax" - as in "tax credits" - allows government to do anything.

The differing district court opinions means the USSC should promptly handle the appeal.

Promptly is good. Or it will be if it happens.

Look I still maintain that if the SC upholds the DC court obama will play a round of golf with Speaker Boner and the House will pass a fix to obamacare to include Federal exchanges rather than use the ruling to repeal it. That way everyone is happy the SC, obama and the Democrats along with Speaker Boner and the Rinos. The only ones unhappy with that outcome will be the the Tea Party. To the Republicans that is a win/win!

The cauldron of activist judges the DC commies have at their disposal strikes again. The pizza analogy is one of the most ridiculous comparisons ever. Obama always has to have some legal loon help him, connect the dots to draw a donkey.
No, the analogy should be that the pizza purchaser saw a commercial for Dominos on tv, that if one says "avoid the noid"(90´s ad theme, noid meaning cold pizza), they get $3.00 off. Then the pizza purchaser gets mad bc pizza came from Pizza Hut and no rebate because Pizza Hut never created any discount promos. Plus, unlike the activist judges sheer speculation, simply having the advertising budget$ to possibly have a discount promo does not mean a discount is implied. Pizza purchaser thought it was the same at both places because they advertise on the same channel! Lol.

Most of us are not lawyers but are able to understand the written word even when it is written in haste for pure political reasons. Actually the intent is crystal clear if you think about it. The intent was to convince the states to set up exchanges in order to get the subsidies for their enrollees. (Obama needed enrollees!) The language was put in there purposefully as a means to an end. Now they find themselves hoisted on their own petard and they don´t like it. The law clearly states tax subsidies are given to enrollees through an exchange established by the state. Pretty clear if you ask me. Obama´s scheme just backfired on him, but I am sure he is confident if this goes to the SCOTUS considering his pal, CJ Roberts, changed his paper the last go ´round.

How can it happen that the White House could get another court to rule within hours of this ruling? No one is asking questions about that. Did they have them on call? There were comments yesterday that the WH response was so smug because they must have had inside information that the 2nd ruling was coming. What happened to separation of powers in this country?

Tyranny indeed. Regarding the second ruling, Congress abrogates their constitutional obligations by delegating to agencies under control of the Executive branch and now the Judicial branch defers to one of those agencies. That´s directly handing the executive branch dictatorial powers. Just brilliant ya nit wits.

The second case was not tried in the DC appeals court and only a ruling by the total justices of that court has standing.
The second court did not have jurisdiction over this exact suit.

Norway’s ruling Conservative Party has voted to withdraw their country’s bid from hosting the 2022 Olympics and providing financial guarantees, evaluating the games to be too costly. Prime Minister Erna Solberg commented, “We have received sound advice and there is no reason not to follow it. A project this magnitude, and at this expense requires broad popular support, of which there is not enough,” cited Norway’s daily English language newspaper, The Local. “We have other things we need to spend this money on.

Jeremy Clarkson has told how he and his Top Gear team were forced to flee Argentina under police escort as furious thugs tried to ´kill´ them. Rock-throwing protesters vowed to ´barbecue´ the controversial motoring show host after a row over the star´s number plate boiled over. Trouble erupted after a photo of Clarkson, 54, driving a Porsche with the number plate H982 FKL, circulated online, enraging Falklands War veterans who claimed it referred to the 1982 conflict. The presenter yesterday said the violent protest was ´state-organised´ accusing the Argentinians of taking advantage of their visit for ´political capital´.

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300. [Snip] It’s hard to think of a more cack-handed, dangerously inept response than what transpired in Dallas. Consider what we now know: Thomas Eric Duncan, a 42-year-old Liberian citizen, had been

Health experts assembled by the White House conceded on Friday that a second case of Ebola could be identified in the U.S. But they defiantly insisted that the epidemic plaguing western Africa will not rise to the level of a major American outbreak. [Snip] But the overall feeling of the sparsely attended afternoon press conference was one of complacency, with the Obama administration´s top Ebola spear-catchers saying over and over that Americans have nothing to fear even though the government has no plans to close airports to planes originating in at the disease´s ground-zero.

Health officials have admitted their response to the potential Ebola outbreak in Texas has been ‘rocky’--amid growing concern over how a patient with the virus was able to get through customs, was initially turned away from hospital with painkllers and Hazmat teams then took five days to properly quarantine his relatives.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

It has been precisely a month since corpulent young dictator Kim Jong Un disappeared from public view, prompting frenzied speculation about his health and the state of political play in North Korea. Kim was last seen at a Sept. 3 concert, ensconced in a red easy chair next to his wife, Ri Sol Ju. Late last month, the youthful marshal was a no-show at a meeting of North Korea’s rubber-stamp legislature. The cloistered nation’s state-run TV aired images of his seat at parliament—empty.

Three US citizens are fighting in Syria, the British Daily Mail reports Friday. But unlike most foreign nationals, they are fighting against - not for - jihadists. One of the Americans has been identified as Jordan Matson (28) from Racine, Wisconsin, a spokesman for the private Pashmerga army, the Kurdish People´s Protection Units (YPG), said Thursday. Matson is a former US Army soldier now "fighting in the Jazaa area," the spokesman added - an area riddled by heavy fighting between Islamic State (ISIS) and Kurdish forces in northeast Syria. The US has not blacklisted the YPG as a terrorist organization, but it does

The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,
