Vastly over dramatised piece on the court case coming up about Obamacare. Rains of frogs and terrors descending. Then this:
And so it comes down to this: a legal challenge based on a technicality — specifically, four words. Should subsidies be available only to exchanges “established by the states”? Or were they designed to cover the entire nation, as is obvious in the intent of the law?
Umm, no, that’s not a technicality. The law says, and one of the people who crafted it has stated that it was also meant to say, that only those who get their Obamacare through a state run exchange can have subsidies. Not people who get it through a Federal exchange.
Is that an idiot thing to have put in the law? Maybe: but blame the idiots who put it there, not the people asking that the country be run according to the rule of law.
