If you are right about Roberts, then he should rule that the subsidies are illegal. Congress already, in fact, DID tell people that they would not get any subsidies if their state did not participate in Obamacare — that’s what the law actually says. If Roberts truly is a minimalist and won’t vote against the intent of Congress, then he will vote that the subsidies are not legal; that’s what’s in the law that Congress actually passed.
Robert’s will say the part of the original ACA decision striking the provisions expanding Medicaid made the wording in question ambiguous.
Roberts will force Congress to deal with the issue whether they want to or not....
Excellent. I agree with your analysis. Roberts will give the subsidies the BOOT!
