    Obamacare dead? WA fed appellate court ruling

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...rious-setback/


    Millions of Americans are not entitled to government health insurance subsidies under Obamacare because of the way the law is written, a divided three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday.

    Check the UPDATE about 3/4 of the way down the page.

    The 4th Circuit just said it's good to go.

    I suppose at some time it will head to SCOTUS who will have rule on this through the tax code.

    stay safe.

    What what I have read the law specifically limits subsidies to only those states' residents from states that set up their own exchanges.

    When the law is plain and understandable, any extratextual crap of what they meant to do is irrelevant ~ the law is clear enough.

    I don't see this passing muster in any court...any court that ruled otherwise are infants

    The Administration will ask for an en banc hearing by the DC Appellate Court for the Federal Circuit. If the entire court rules like the Fourth Circuit just did, it may or may not be granted certiorari by SCOTUS. If the entire court for the federal circuit rules as the panel did, then SCOTUS won't have much choice but to take it.

    This situation arose after Senator Harry Reid, acting as the Majority Leader in the Senate, changed the rules about how the Senate approves Presidential nominees. Result: Obama recently appointed four judges, only one of which would have passed muster under the old rules.

    Furthermore, the court slated to review this first is staffed with a judge recently appointed under the new rules. Put simply, by stacking the judiciary with judges patently favoring Obama's regime, Obama and his cronies are stacking the deck against a fair and impartial judiciary.
