The criminals who wear robes in Washington have doubled down….. and this was the bass-acward” reasoning” from JUDAS Roberts…… “Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them,” Roberts wrote in the majority opinion . (Exactly how does he know that…. Congress admitted they did not read the Bill before they passed it) “ If at all possible, we must interpret the Act in a way that is consistent with the former, and avoids the latter.”
Enter Scalia and his response…..
In a dissent he summarized from the bench, Justice Antonin Scalia said, “We should start calling this law SCOTUScare.” Using the acronym for the Supreme Court, Scalia said his colleagues have twice stepped in to save the law from what Scalia considered worthy challenges.
“The Court holds that when the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act says ‘Exchange established by the State’ it means ‘Exchange established by the State or the Federal Government.’ That is of course quite absurd, and the Court’s 21 pages of explanation make it no less so,” Scalia wrote.
Scalia added, “Words no longer have meaning if an Exchange that is not established by a State is ‘established by the State.’ It is hard to come up with a clearer way to limit tax credits to state Exchanges than to use the words ‘established by the State.’ And it is hard to come up with a reason to include the words ‘by the State’ other than the purpose of limiting credits to state Exchanges.”
For the criminals….. Mission Accomplished….. again….. health care will become even more unaffordable, more unavailable and have no relation to quality based improvements. Isn’t Hope & Change Great!!!!!
