At stake before the US Supreme Court is the Constitutionality of the Obamacare subsidies for states who did not build their own exchanges. Obamacare is clearly unconstitutional to anyone capable of critical thought, and according to the ACA (Affordable Care Act) aka Obamacare, subsidies for states without exchanges, is clearly illegal by the very words contained within the ACA law. Obama decided with his pen and his phone to provide subsidies to 7.5 million people in states who opted out of the state exchange despite this being clearly against the very language contained within the ACA itself. Thus this is an illegal act.
If the Supreme Court rules against Obama’s subsidies, then 7.5 million may lose their health care insurance. This is patently unfair since many of these people were forced off of the healthcare they had previously and on to Obamacare. A large portion of these 7.5 million likely have Medicare / Medicaid not Obamacare, so will not be impacted by this ruling.
Unfortunately, the Supreme Court –to add more problems for the survival of this Republic– have forgotten their role and that is to interpret the US Constitution not to legislate. Congress too has forgotten its role to legislate and has left this up to the Executive. Our government is a mess. It is one big political rugby match, the Constitution be damned and your rights and freedoms as guaranteed by the Constitution as well.
It is not the Supreme Court’s job to worry about a “death spiral” of Obamacare. That is the job of Congress; a Congress that passed a terrible law through terrible means.
