    Obamacare was doomed from day one. Love it or hate it, anyone who thinks it was ever going to succeed is highly delusional and naive.

    Hah, the US...
    The country where people are intentionally working against what they get told, what their government does and where people hate everyone who doesn't vote like them.
    I mean, doesn't the US have strong movements declaring global warming a lie? Now there's also those people intentionally forcing their cars to produce more CO2 to counter some environmental law Obama put in. Then there's this whole thing around Obamacare.

    Well, gosh... not illegal after all. Who woulda thunk?

    And it was a 6-3 ruling.

    https://www.yahoo.com/politics/supre...340028541.html


    The Supreme Court spared a key part of President Barack Obama’s signature law in a 6-3 decision Thursday, ruling that the federal government may continue to subsidize health insurance in the dozens of states that did not set up their own exchanges.

    Chief Justice John Roberts, who was the object of immense conservative blowback after he joined the court’s liberals three years ago to uphold the law’s individual mandate, again wrote the majority opinion in support of the Obama administration position. He was joined by Justice Anthony Kennedy, who expressed deep reservations when the case was argued about whether striking down the subsidies would coerce states into establishing their own exchanges, and the court’s four liberal justices.

    The law’s challengers argued that four words in the statute — “established by the state” — meant that only people who bought insurance from exchanges in the handful of states that set up their own marketplaces would be eligible for tax credits and other government assistance. The government countered that the clear intent of the law was to provide the subsidies for all lower-income Americans who sought coverage.

    The court concluded that while the Affordable Care Act was “inartful” and “does not reflect the type of care and deliberation that one might expect of such significant legislation,” Congress still did not mean to exclude millions of people from tax credits. Roberts wrote that “an exchange established by the state” refers to both federal and state exchanges, because the law directs the secretary of Health and Human Services to establish “such exchange” if a state does not do so. ...
