Skip to comments.Obama says Supreme Court should never have taken up health law case, in blunt challenge

resident Obama bluntly challenged the Supreme Court over a pending ruling on the validity of ObamaCare subsidies, complaining Monday that the court should never have taken up the case -- and warning that a ruling against subsidies would be a "twisted interpretation" of the law.
The president and his administration's legal team for months have fought the Affordable Care Act court challenge, which is over whether people who enrolled through the federal HealthCare.gov are entitled to subsidies.
But the president's comments on Monday, during a press conference on the sidelines of the G-7 summit in Germany, were perhaps his toughest to date. He strongly suggested the court would be running afoul of established legal guidance if it rules against the administration, and took the rare step of saying the court should have stayed out of this fight.

Here we go, another effort by Obama to intimidate SCOTUS. And hey, why not, it worked the first time!
So if the Supremes require enforcement of 0bama’s law, that’s wrong?
How dare the proletariat question the King!
How dare we!
Well, he should know! He’s a Constitutional expert, after all... [/sheesh]
For him go on the offensive on this issue overseas, he must already know he lost. He is getting a statement out for his liberal base.
The whole fricking law is twisted. The very way in which it came to be law was twisted.
Obama is twisted. A sick and twisted bastard (literally and figuratively a bastard.)
Wow, what a jerk.
Apparently he’s unfamiliar with separation of powers.
2016 can’t come fast enough.
L’etat c’est moi!
I wonder if he got a “heads up” that the USSC will vote in his favor. That is why he is acting so uppity.
Pelosi’s secret source on the Court knows its not going to go well.
The Clown Prince nobama minions need to break out the secret NSA files and discretely show the to the judges...if history is any guide. How dare anyone question His Highness.
That explains why the flies seem to like him, doesn’t it?
Blank you Mr. President.
For an alleged constitutional law teacher, you are dumb as a bag of rocks. It is not up to the president to decide which cases the Supreme Court takes and which it declines to hear.
He really overstepped his bounds here. But the media will not call him out on it.
The plain text of the law sounds clear to me. Yet he claims that only a twisted interpretation would result in exchanges run by the states and not the federal government.
He should go talk to Nancy P. His real problem should be with a convoluted 2000 page law which was not read and understood before being rammed through on a party line vote. And the related issue of confusing language in this 2000 page law.
Will anyone in the media talk about what I just mentioned about confusing language and problems in ramming thru unread 2000 page bills? Its that confusion and misunderstanding of how this law is to be administered which resulted in this particular court case.
