New Federal ACA Court Ruling Shatters Obamacare in 36 States- Should Have Read The Bill


The Halbig v Sylvia Burwell <==CLICK ON ruling is the largest threat to Obamcare since the US Supreme Court on “A Tax” ruling in 2012.

On July 22, a three-judge panel U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit issued a ruling against the federal government that threatens a large part of the health insurance subsidies in over thirty states (36). The Court ruled that those receiving health insurance in the 36 states where the federal health exchanges operate are not eligible for subsidies under the law.

Circuit Court Judge GRIFFITH: (in part)

Appellants are a group of individuals and employers residing in
states that did not establish Exchanges. For reasons we explain more fully
below, the IRS’s interpretation of section 36B makes them subject to certain penalties under the ACA that they would rather not face. Believing that the IRS’s interpretation is inconsistent with section 36B, appellants challenge the regulation under the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), alleging that it is not “in accordance with law.” 5
U.S.C. § 706(2)(A).

“We reach this conclusion, frankly, with reluctance,” Judge Thomas B. Griffith said in his opinion for the court. “At least until states that wish to can set up Exchanges, our ruling will likely have significant consequences both for the millions of individuals receiving tax credits through federal Exchanges and for health insurance markets more broadly.”

The Washington Post reports that 87 percent of the 5.4 million who signed up for coverage in these 36 states received federal subsidies. Without those IRS-provided subsidies, the price of health care for those individuals could increase by up to 76 percent,

The Obama Admin basically says they will ignore The high court ruling when White House press secretary Josh Earnest addressed the Obama administration’s legal defeat Tuesday morning, dismissing the decision as:

“interesting to legal theorists,” but having “no practical impact.”

Earnest said that the ruling would not immediately affect Americans currently receiving tax credits through the federal exchange, adding that he expects the Department of Justice to fight the decision. Acting for the Obama administration, the DOJ will likely ask for the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to weigh in on a ruling made by a three-judge panel, Earnest said.

When asked if a DOJ defeat would spell doom for the [un] Affordable Care Act, Earnest side-stepped the question, repeating that the administration is “confident in the legal basis that supports our case.”

No one will remember this, but I predict this will wind up before the US Supreme Court and Chief Justice John Roberts won’t make another mistake. ACA is doomed in it’s current state unless repealed and then modified if CONGRESS decides to do it.

Obama will most likely be out of office, and corrections will take a decade to undo, and he will wind up being the first black Jimmy Carter (now I am a racist) which is an insult to Jimmy Carter. No president in history has taken a steam roller to the constitution as this sitting president because I believe he is not a real American but malignant narrassaistic, thin skin Harvard dumb ass. I have seen this many times- He is the only thing that matters.
