ObamaCare Could Now Face An Ugly Death

The Socialists in Congress rammed through ObamaCare without one single Republican, or reading  reading the bill.  Remember, ditz Socialist Nancy Pelosi said they had to pass the bill to know what is in it.   While now we know what is in ObamaCare.  A particular provision has come back to haunt the Socialists.   There was an assumption that all states would set up Exchanges as the only vehicle through which premium subsidies could flow.   Only 14 states set up Exchanges, while 36 states did not.  The language in the bill is very clear.   Subsidies going to Americans in the 36 states with no Exchanges that used the Federal Exchange to buy ObamaCare are illegal.  One federal court ruled against Obama, while another ruled in favor of Obama.  This means that this case will go to the Supreme Court for final resolution. 

It will all boil down to Chief Justice John Roberts.   The four Conservative Justices on the Supreme Court will rule against Obama because the language is clear.   Roberts will again decide this case.  If the Supreme Court rules these Subsidies provided in the 36 states without Exchanges are illegal, it will be end of ObamaCare because the Republican led House of Representatives will never vote to change this provision. 

This would mean that the 90% of Americans that got Subsidies through ObamaCare will not receive them going forward.   If that happens, they will not be able to afford the skyrocketing medical premiums and ObamaCare will die.  Let us hope that Chief Justice John Roberts votes right this time around.   History is watching Roberts.  His legacy is on the line.
