Jonathan Gruber, in another video, clarified another true intent of the ObamaCare law. The law is written clearly that only persons in States that have set-up their own healthcare exchanges get the subsidies -- but the citizens in those states still pay the O'care taxes. Thirty seven states did not set up the exchanges as the law also allows. But the intent was to coerce the States to set-up the exchanges.
All of this is extremely relevant now that the Supreme Court has decided to take up the case where the plaintiffs are correctly claiming that the administration is violating the plain text of the law by providing healthcare subsidies to everyone. And of course the subsidies are key to shielding people from the ridiculously high prices on offer. Without Federal subsidies, very few can afford O'care policies. Some 90% of the people enrolled in O'care get subsidies.
“I think what’s important to remember politically about this is, if you’re a state and you don’t set up an exchange, that means your citizens don’t get their tax credits,”
"But your citizens still pay the taxes that support this bill. So you’re essentially saying to your citizens, you’re going to pay all the taxes to help all the other states in the country.”Charles Krauthammer explained the plainly written intent of the law:
This may have been a stupid idea, but it was no slip. And it’s the law, as written, as enacted and as intended. It can be changed by Congress only, not by the executive. Which is precisely what the plaintiffs are saying.You can imagine that the Supreme Court justices are reading and noting these revelations. Let's hope so. Democrats are a bunch of liars and tricksters with Obama being the worst one of them all.
Remember, tricks and coercion are very much part of propagating the Liberal agenda. Without tricks and coercion, people won't accept what Liberals are offering!
