Obamacare's Best Allies: The Courts and the Republicans

14 min 47 sec ago
By ruling for the government in the case of King v. Burwell, the Supreme Court once again tied itself into rhetorical and logical knots to defend Obamacare. In King, the court disregarded Obamacare's clear language regarding eligibility for federal health care subsides, on the grounds that enforcing the statute as written would cause havoc in the marketplace. The court found that Congress could not have intended this result and that the court needed to uphold Congress's mythical intention and ignore Obamacare's actual language. 2015-06-29T12:10:00-04:00 2015-06-30T04:56:41Z Ron Paul
