By upholding it AS WRITTEN and as Congress INTENDED it (that the subsidies be an incentive for states to establish exchanges), he thereby eliminates subsidies for states with no exchanges, and hoists O'care on its own petard.
Thus he is consistent with his earlier ruling.
RE: Roberts can kill Obamacare by upholding it.
By upholding it AS WRITTEN and as Congress INTENDED it
SIGH, if only....
Roberts DID NOT uphold the law AS WRITTEN when it came to the healthcare purchase mandate.
AS WRITTEN is says that those who don’t buy health insurance are subject to ta PENALTY.
Roberts CHANGED it to make it mean a TAX.
The man simply REWROTE the law from the bench.
How can we be confident that he won’t similarly rewrite this portion of the law?
