Supreme Court may not
protect Obamacare this time

Washington Post, by Ruth Marcus

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 7/24/2014 10:35:53 PM

Don’t be so sure that the Supreme Court is going to save Obamacare. Again. The question is enormously important: Are health-care consumers entitled to subsidies if they buy coverage on insurance exchanges established by the federal government, as they are with insurance from state exchanges? Two federal appeals courts have reached contradictory conclusions, at least so far. (The Obama administration plans to ask the full federal appeals court in Washington to review the three-judge panel ruling against the subsidies, and that court is newly stocked with liberals.) Cases are headed to two other appeals courts. Which adds up to:

The Supreme Court simply isn’t going to rip insurance from tens of millions of people in order to teach Congress a lesson about grammar

Its not an issue of grammar, its an issue of the Feds wanting to force states to each have their own exchange and punish the states that do not comply. The Feds do this all the time by withholding various funds from states which don´t follow the wishes of the Federal mandates.

If the court "ducks the issue", it will be the greatest shirking of responsibility imaginable and would make me wonder if the Supreme Court should simply be disbanded.

The wording of the law was intentional. The drafters intended to coerce the states to build healthcare exchanges by only allowing subsidies in state exchanges. They believed this would force the states to build exchanges at their own expense.
But the law of unintended consequences intervened. States rebelled by not giving in.

With such a crappy result, the libs are now trying to change the intentions!! What was purposely written is now the words are ambiguous and the law meant to say all exchanges.

Total bull crap.

Until the decision is announced, we will know nothing. Earlier today it was read that Scalia had shown his hand in some fashion and the court decision would likely land on o-care side. At this point it is anyone´s guess. All we can do is pray harder and more often.

Nope! SCOTUS 1) Probably will not hear it if the panel agrees with the DC court. SCOTUS will hear it if the Panel strikes it. SCOTUS will then full approve the ACA as written...Result, Full steam ahead for the final destruction and collapse of the U.S. economy.

If our laws are now to be interpreted based upon what the drafters intended to say, rather than what they said, I cannot see much reason for having drafters. Why not just a King´s whim?

Roberts gave Boehner the tool to totally wipe out this monster obamacare once and for all by calling it a TAX. Since the ´law´ did not originate in the House he should have raised the situation at the time and had it nullified.

By Barry calling for the full federal appeals court, packed by libtards, to review the case, the fix is already in. Here´s the result: 3 courts will have ruled that the federal crap exchange is the same as the state crap exchanges; ergo, no need for the Supreme Court to review anything. Besides, there´s always NSA and its spying database to glean out any tidbit for blackmail purposes.

I looked at a Social Security report from 2012 the other day. It showed that I had paid SS and Medicare taxes (including my employer contributions-which sometimes was me) totaling over $ 400,000 over the years. My expected payout at age 66 was about $2,200 a month.

All I could think of was that several families were getting subsidies for ACA policies of similar amounts for not contributing a dime.

How can anyone think that the country can absorb such enormous costs without collapsing. Oh....of course I DO realize that NONE of my SS taxes have been save in a "lock box" like we were promised...the funds have all been spent.

Sorry, but I sincerely believe that excessive Democrat spending and irresponsible budgeting will be the ruin of the entire country. Obama is just the worst to come along yet. Unfortunately there will be more.

I have zero faith in the SCOTUS since CJ Roberts decision to unilaterally change the wording of the ACA in order to allow it to chug along and financially ruin this country. Politics was the driving force behind that decision. Roberts´ attempt to save the reputation of his court backfired on him big time. When politics trump the rule of law, there is chaos and Roberts served the mess that is Obamacare to us on a silver platter. I can´t see him having the courage to actually interpret the law instead of reading intent into it. He failed the integrity test the last time around, I don´t expect him to do any better this time.

As someone said when they called Rush yesterday, Congress didn´t have any intent when they signed this bill, they didn´t even know what was in it, per Nancy Pelosi "we have to pass this bill to find out what is in it".

The language is clear on its face and there is not one iota of contemporaneous evidence that the intent was something different. When the language in the law is ambiguous a court may rely on legislative committee reports from the time the law was under consideration to determine intent. But the courts have long rejected self serving statements of intent that date from after the bill was drafted, passed and signed into law.

Overturning the law on these grounds fits with Chief Justice Roberts philosophy. Elections have consequences. So does ramming through a hastily drafted, largely unread bill that was becoming ever more unpopular as people learned what was in it.

Come on, let´s be more optimistic. This aspect of the case, subsidies, coming before the Supremes is much different than the individual mandate case. There is no reason to chart the outcome of this case to the old one. Roberts must know the backlash he created and the damage he did to the court, so perhaps he´ll interpret differently this time. Remember the ACA just got pulled from US territories and that should help set a precedent.

What would be hysterical though is if Roberts rewrites it again, declares it something else other than a tax to help the miserable democrats with yet another mistake they made.
Call it whack a mole for "today´s interpretation", lol.

This country has been living under SC rulings for many, many years (I´d guess at least 200yrs) by courts making rulings by interpreting the legislators "intentions" rather that what is actually written down. How many times have you heard someone (usually Dims) blathering on about "the intent of the founders". I´ve always thought that it is the height of hypocrisy to assume that he/she has the ability to go back in time and read the minds of someone who has been dead for over 200yrs. This Obozocare thing is the same. There are those that just "know" what the Congress persons that voted for it intended but failed to write it down in the law. My take is that they are reading those nearly empty minds after someone called them on just what is actually written. And anyone that disagrees with them just can´t see the forest for the trees.

SCOTUS does not need to determine the intent of Congress as they would in a case of the founding fathers and our Constitution. Congress is in session just across town. They should send it back to Congress for clarification. The politics of whose in power is none of the court´s business.

It burns me up that these lefty judges ponder the consequences of a different Congress "gutting the law."

We still need a Supreme Court, #1. We just need to vacate the "judicial review" precedent of Marbury v. Madison.

It is Congress´ responsibility to oversee the courts, not the other way around. If there is a Constitutional issue, it should be taken up with the states and the people, not with a handful of robed lawyers.

Again. I will repeat myself. This portion of the law was written BY SCOTUS. Check the history of the changes to the bill. If SCOTUS rules against it, they will, in fact, be ruling against themselves!

They must uphold the first decision, or rule against themselves!

As I stated, again in other posts, Roberts encouraged in his opinion, to fight this decision in the courts. He knew there were flaws. He, and the other justices will uphold law, I can promise you, regardless of what Obie has on him. The text, as written, is plain and clear. Intent doesn´t matter, facts are all that matter in law.

It was clear the purpose, it was clear Obambi expected more states to accept Federal dollars. The SCOTUS was standing up for states´ rights, and then encouraged us, the people, to fight back if we had it in us.

We do, and we did. I think this is what Roberts wanted. He wrote that portion of the bill. To rule any other way would be total insanity.

Study the history of the bill, then calm down!

How did Roberts, a sitting Supreme Court Justice, write any portion of Obamacare? If he is consistent, he and his fellow conservatives will rule that Congress, not the Court, has to fix the wording. It´s too bad for the Democrats that they no longer control Congress, but if they hadn´t rammed the law through without any bipartisan support, they wouldn´t be in this quandary.

Obama administration attempts
to quell fears about Ebola
Washington Times, by Tom Howell Jr.    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 10/3/2014 11:32:42 PM     Post Reply
The Obama administration sought Friday to tamp down fears of an Ebola outbreak within the U.S., making the case that America’s infrastructure and health care systems set it apart from the horrific scenes coming out of West Africa, even as a confirmed case in Dallas and recent scares in the nation’s capital prompt fears of a domestic problem. “The United States is prepared to deal with the crisis,” Lisa Monaco, homeland security adviser to President Obama, told reporters at a White House briefing on the response to the deadly virus. At the same time, officials said they understood the alarm

The U.S. economy is back on solid ground six years after the Great Recession, new data showed Friday, but President Obama and other Democrats are struggling to convince voters ahead of the midterm elections that they deserve the credit for the rebound. The government reported that the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent in September, the lowest level since the dark days of the 2008 financial crisis. Job growth surged to 248,000 in what was the final snapshot of the nation’s labor market before voters head to the polls in November. Obama on Friday seized on the numbers, pleading with

A Washington-area hospital announced Friday that it had admitted a patient with symptoms and a travel history associated with Ebola. The case has not been confirmed, but the number of similar incidents around the country and a confirmed Ebola patient in Dallas have spurred concerns about whether U.S. hospitals are as prepared to deal with the virus as federal officials insist they are. Since July, hospitals around the country have reported more than 100 cases involving Ebola-like symptoms to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, officials there said. Only one patient so far — Thomas Duncan in Dallas

MADISON, Wis. — Gov. Scott Walker is casting himself as a turnaround artist, seeking re-election with a pitch to voters that he revamped the state’s spending and business climate in just four years. For a governor with presidential aspirations, it’s a case he’s likely preparing for a national audience as well — but first he’ll have to get through a tighter-than-expected re-election race against Democrat Mary Burke, a former state secretary of commerce. As if that wasn’t enough, analysts say that his race could also say a lot about the political strength of labor unions, given that they’ve made defeating

You can win midterm elections without a positive agenda. You can’t win presidential elections that way. It is therefore vitally important for Republicans to win the Senate in 2014. Here’s why. In midterms, it’s all right to be the party of no. The 2010 election, for example, was a referendum on the liberal overreach of the first two Obama years. Result? A Democratic “shellacking,” said President Obama. The massive stimulus, (the failed) cap-and-trade and Obamacare created a major backlash that cost Obama the House and, with it, the rest of his ideological agenda. It’s been blocked ever since. That’s the

The whistleblowers, who have spoken out about various problems and wrongdoing at the law enforcement agency, said they recently have been served with Loss of Effectiveness orders, warning that their performance is suffering and that they could soon be fired. “These whistleblowers never have the opportunity to make their case,” said Sen.

As the Ebola virus spread quickly across parts of Africa in March, U.S. officials confronted a logistical nightmare: a complete lack of infrastructure in affected regions, no evacuation plans and air charter services that were unable or unwilling to fly into the region to transport seriously ill patients. And it turns out there’s only one jet in the world — operated by a small private plane charter company in Georgia — with a special transport tube that allows medical personnel to treat Ebola patients while in flight. The Atlanta-based Centers for Disease and Prevention helped develop the “air transport bio-containment

But as a result of this lapse, Thomas Duncan was able to leave the hospital and interact with more people while experiencing symptoms, which is when the virus

The confirmation Tuesday of the first Ebola case on U.S. soil emerges against a backdrop of increasing concern in America’s medical community that preparedness for a pandemic has stagnated or slipped in recent years because of tough economic times and increasing malaise since the 2001 anthrax threat. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, America’s premier disease fighter, offered the air of confidence in declaring that the first Ebola patient in Dallas was carefully contained. But earlier this year, it sounded less optimistic about the U.S. health system’s ability to fight a pandemic should a major disease outbreak occur.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered.

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.

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.

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up.
