Could a wording ´glitch´ doom
Obama´s healthcare law?

Los Angeles Times, by David G. Savage

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

Hmmm....make it appear the compromise was between both parties and not just the Dems who constructed it. Here again comes up the fact that it was the Senate Bill which was shoved down everybody´s throat on Christmas Eve----making Tax Laws which is not in the Senate´s jurisdiction by left strictly to the House.

When Robert´s Called the Bill a TAX, Boehner held in his hands all he needed to contest the bill and it would have been dead. Look at the billions already wasted on this useless piece of junk legislation.

The wordings intent was coercive from the beginning to force the States to enroll. It was not a "glitch" or a "scrivener´s error".

There´s more than enough evidence out there - articles and videos to prove it wasn´t a glitch.

"what the law intended"

now there is a phrase dear to every leftist liberal progressive. they´re professional pols...the vast majority of the leftists are lawyers..they know full well that words have meanings. They were stuck with those words when they lost the Kennedy Senate seat and couldn´t include the language they wanted...so they had to claim the law, as it was written, had been "deemed passed" by both chambers of the congress, otherwise they wouldn´t get any new bill passed...

NOW they want to re-write the law as "it was intended". Well you know, that version was never voted on or passed...

It´s not a "glitch", it´s what they barely passed through Congress cuz that´s all they could finagle at the time.

FTA: Topher Spiro, a former Senate health policy staffer now at the Center for American Progress, said he viewed the lawsuits as "silly, not to be taken seriously." "Other than a few right-wing activists, no one thought this was a legitimate challenge," he said.

Interesting the LA Slimes uses the radical left Center for American Progress as a neutral, non partisan source that should be taken seriously. And, the LAT uses a quote that marginalizes conservatives while never providing a response from a group opposed to ObamaCare and its horrible language. LAT and the NYT will be working overtime to say that this law doesn´t mean what it says about health insurance subsidies.

This "law", I use the term loosely, is a victim of blowback, simply due to being a victim of unexpected circumstances.

That states so highly chose to opt out, thereby, rejecting Federal Funds, no matter what anyone says, was a bribe, totally went against everything Pelosi, Reid, et al, were hoping for.

Simply put, they had hoped all the states would be money mongers like them, willing to sell their entire state down the river to line their pockets.

It speaks volumes, both about the states that refused to, as well as the ones that chkse to.

Let´s say arguendo that it was a drafting error. Happens all the time with tax laws for example. CONGRESS (not O) then passes a "technical corrections" bill which the president signs to fix these errors. That´s NOT going to happen here. Of course, this was most certainly not a drafting error in reality.

Everyody is concentrating on the subsidy issue, but subsidies are linked to employer mandates. No subsidy, no provision for penalties on employers who don´t go along.

This is not a wording glitch. This is the result of thrown together legislation, mainly written by aids, that no one read before they passed it. And forcing me to fund health care for someone in another State is not a ´technical correction´. It is a liberal dream come true.

Obamacare was doomed from the beginning because it is unconstitutional, unworkable, unsustainable and because patriotic Americans will NOT be forced to do anything. We have paid a premium price for freedom and we won´t be giving it up because some jelly-headed dictator says so. It´s only a matter of time.

The last sentence of this article has it exactly backwards. The language of a statute is the best evidence of intent. To rely on something other than the language allows the minority, who couldn´t get their language included, to claim that the intent was something other than what the law says. It is not the role of the courts to change the clear and unambiguous language. That is up to the democratic process--if the public sentiment has shifted since the law was passed, not amending a law is what a democracy is all about.

The flip side of not getting premium support subsidies is not having penalties for employers in the state that doesn´t offer ´approved´ health insurance through a state exchange. The reason the employer mandate was delayed for a year is that business would have taken ACA and IRS to court the moment they tried to collect a tax not created by Congress.

It was not a language glitch. It was intentional, deliberate language negotiated between the Democrats with no Republican input. But it was based upon a set of faulty assumptions and predictions that didn´t pan out. Now the whole house of cards will come toppling down. It´s not savable. Just as the electorate was forced by Roberts and the Supreme Court to live with its political choices, its elected officials will soon be forced by that court to live with theirs. All that blackmail and bribery for naught.

I´m not the bit surprised that the Dims are yelling about the "intent" of the law rather than the language of the law. After all, for many decades now they have been telling us about what the "intent" of the founders of the country and the writers of the Constitution really "intended" when the wrote the document. And see, it´s really understandable. Dims are blessed with the ability to read minds, even of those who have be dead and gone for over 200yrs. And we, the unwashed, should be soooo appreciative that they can do this. It´s so they can "do the right thing" for us. Of course that means what they decide is the right thing, not us.

What a reprehensible article.

The truth is actually mentioned in the article but glossed over. In fear of being accused of a federal power grab, some Senators insisted on a fig leaf of saying that the subsidies would only be available for state agencies. It was a deliberate position staked out to buy votes of some Senators.

I´m sure the liberals would have liked to remove that language in conference, but they were too rushed in trying to circumvent legislative procedures to ram it trough to polish it up. As noted, support for state subsidies only is mentioned numerous times in the law. It´s not an "oops".

So does the court support what the law plainly says, what was negotiated to get the support needed to pass the law in the first place or do they accept the law as it was wished to be by liberals?

If they accept liberal fantasy as law, there might as well be no law.

The progressive fascist tried to force states to set up exchanges by penalizing them with the withdrawal of federal money and the ObamaCare subsidies. The Supreme Court said the penalties were unconstitutional. The law says that the subsidies are only available at state exchanges and that is what the Supreme Court is going to rule.

To be precise one half the Congress was swimming in midnight oil to push through a poorly written bill unwanted by the majority of Americans. Burning midnight leads to quick decisions based on false concepts of morality .
There was no inclusion of proper means just liberal promises of everything free except real health care. Sexual tools and pills were the main topic because the stupid half burning the oil thought the public was jaded enough to consider only that concept.

When government employees buy the California legislature with huge campaign contributions, one of the benefits they expect in return is absolute protection of the lush pensions they are promised, even when their employer goes into bankruptcy. Thus, California law insists that Calpers, the state-backed agency used to provide many government employees with their pensions, is granted very special powers, including the right to seize assets and liquidate them to provide for full payment of pensions, even when other creditors are paid a penny on the dollar. But yesterday, a federal bankruptcy judge in California issued a preliminary ruling indicating that

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki.

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He also called potential candidates Ohio Gov. John

A white Ohio woman is suing a Downers Grove-based sperm bank, alleging that the company mistakenly gave her vials from an African-American donor, a fact that she said has made it difficult for her and her same-sex partner to raise their now 2-year-old daughter in an all-white community. Jennifer Cramblett, of Uniontown, Ohio, alleges in the lawsuit filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court that Midwest Sperm Bank sent her the vials of an African-American donor´s sperm in September 2011 instead of those of a white donor that she and her white partner had ordered.

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being
