People are so focused on Obamacare, they forget this case is about a broader issue. That is, can the president or the IRS or any other federal agency ignore plain language in a law and fashion the meaning to their own political ends. At the time Ocare was written, the phrase “exchanges established by the states” was put in the law for a reason, by the democrats. It didn’t work out the way they expected so they want to treat it like the phrase was never enacted. But it was. If a law has faulty provisions, simply go back to congress and ask that the law be changed. But the democrats don’t want to do that, they know the whole law would be up for change. Instead, they and the IRS ignore plain language and subsidize people with no basis in the plain text. So this is a democrat problem/issue.
