The four words that threaten disaster for the ACA say the subsidies shall be available to persons who purchase health insurance in an exchange “established by the state.” But 34 states have chosen not to establish exchanges.
Sometimes George Will just cracks me up. We live in an era when the Supreme Court, in the person of John Roberts, unlaterly saved Obamacare by intepreting a crucial clause as a “tax” – an argument specifically rejected by the government – in order to save the law from certain doom.
And now Will is enough of a naif to think that his mighty “four words” will bring down the law?
What a laugh.
If the IRS can do both, Congress can disband because it has become peripheral to American governance.
Even funnier. Hey, George, you antediluvian witterer: Wake up and smell the tyrannical coffee!
