It is being reported that the Supreme Court has set a hearing date for March to consider a new, potentially damning, challenge to ObamaCare. At issue in the case is the legality of subsidies offered to help millions of low- and middle-income people buy health insurance. The court announced Monday that it will hear the case on March 4, 2015.
Quite correctly, the opponents are arguing that most of the subsidies are illegal. They have challenged the legality of providing them to those using HealthCare.gov. This is what happens when we our “leaders” pass a bill without reading it first. Had it been read and our lawmakers (really the Liberals who rammed this garbage down our throat to begin with) had done their job that they’re being paid huge sums to not do, maybe we’d have caught this one.
“In July, a Richmond, Virginia-based appeals court upheld Internal Revenue Service regulations that allow health-insurance tax credits under the Affordable Care Act for consumers in all 50 states. On that same July day, a panel of appellate judges in Washington, District of Columbia, sided with the challengers in striking down the IRS regulations. The Washington court held that under the law, financial aid can be provided only in states that have set up their own insurance markets, known as exchanges.
The administration has said the congressional intent behind the law is for eligible customers regardless of where they live to receive assistance from the government to subsidize the purchase of health care.
Though the case could mark the biggest challenge to the law since it was narrowly upheld in 2012, the White House has said such cases “won’t stand in the way” of the Affordable Care Act.”
This is yet another example of poor legislation at the hands of liberals. Yet another arrogant attempt to regulate and legislate your life because, hey, don’t they know better than you? Well, my friends, hopefully this tide will turn in 2015 as the conservatives will be taking over the senate and the house. One can only hope they’ll address this vile law for good, but we’ll see what happens come March.
