Obamacare is in serious danger. After weathering a Supreme Court challenge that threatened to gut the law by striking down the individual mandate, major pillars the business penalty, the individual penalty, and the generous health-care subsidies that make the exchange plans affordable are being challenged in court, with at least two lawsuits potentially dealing mortal wounds before New Years Day.
The chink in the armor is that Obamacare subsidizes plans for people enrolled in through an exchange established by the state under section 1311 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, but in a move Democrats didnt expect, 34 states didnt establish an exchange. And if people arent able to access these subsidies, they cant be penalized.
In addition, businesses where the employees are unable to access these subsidies also cant be penalized. Two hundred million Americans live in those 34 states a hefty chunk of the U.S. population.
This is far more egregious than any other step the president has taken to ignore or rewrite federal law, Cato Institute healthy policy studies director Michael Cannon told The Daily Caller, because here, what the president is doing is trying to borrow and spend hundreds of billions of dollars that Congress expressly prohibits him from touching, from spending.(continued)

Not to worry. Roberts will suspend the Constitution to make Obamacide “work.”
Anyone have a list of the 34 states handy? Just curious.
I agree . . . I think Obama has something on Roberts. It may all go back to the theft of files by Craig Livingston during the Clinton Admn. Those files may have been given to OBAMA and he is bribing certain people to keep information about them under wraps. Guess we will never know.
I think he has something on a lot of people. . . . .
That’s because “they’ve” already made him an offer he can’t refuse.
Through NSA the kenyan has “something on” everyone. Additionally I think Roberts is taking Dilantin. After a few years of that one’s judgement becomes cloudy and decisiveness wanes.
That is also likely. That sort of thing is SOP in the Mafia and in Chicago politics.
” I think Obama has something on Roberts.”
“I think he has something on a lot of people. . . . .”
I think that to get that high up in American politics you
have to be compromised to begin with. No one is allowed to
in unless they are controlled either by ideology or dirt.
If Obama has always been the dirt bag that he is now, he
is most likely the most compromised person to ever hold
I agree, Roberts is in Obama’s pocket. How does he keep these people silent? 35 Benghazi survivors and not a peep? Got to be some really scary stuff happening just out of view.
Hoping for the rule of law to be restored is a long shot.
