Lots of red meat for the Fear/Anger/Hate Radio Cabal this morning, as the SCOTUS shoves one right up their poop chute:
Supreme Court upholds nationwide health care law subsidies
MARK SHERMAN, Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has upheld the nationwide tax subsidies under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, in a ruling that preserves health insurance for millions of Americans.
The justices said in a 6-3 ruling Thursday that the subsidies that 8.7 million people currently receive to make insurance affordable do not depend on where they live, under the 2010 health care law.
The outcome is the second major victory for Obama in politically charged Supreme Court tests of his most significant domestic achievement.
Chief Justice John Roberts again voted with his liberal colleagues in support of the law. Roberts also was the key vote to uphold the law in 2012.
Justice Anthony Kennedy also voted with his more liberal colleagues.June 25, 2015 at 7:50 am #11846

Oh I can hear the conservatives on the radio now. Conservative talk show host and their callers will talk about how six judges are ruling and running America into the ground. And how all the courts should be purged of all the “liberal” judges in them.June 25, 2015 at 8:07 am #11848

I just read some free per comments on TPP, and it’s really interesting.
There is a very good case for unity in opposition to the thing.

And the hippies!
I remember those days. I remember disaffected hippies who were disappointed that they lost their “revolution” saying that they were going to have to “change”/destroy America from within. This was back in the 60s and I didn’t give it much credence. But that’s sure what they did.

The SCOTUS just saved the asses of the right wing. Had insurance been stripped, there would have been dire consequences for the part of the right wing party that sponges off the rest of us yet bitches about socialism.
The devil part of me was hoping for the opposite ruling just to make a point to those fucking hypocrites railing against socialism yet soaking it all in as much as they can.June 25, 2015 at 9:21 pm #11873
Yes, I had those thoughts too. Glad it didn’t happen. People need this stuff.
But if it had?June 26, 2015 at 12:53 am #11881skepticalParticipant
Roberts is looking at his legacy. Being nominated by Bush isn’t exactly legacy-making stuff, so getting behind Obamacare, twice, erases that blemish.
BTW, the GOP is due another public spanking very shortly.June 29, 2015 at 3:25 pm #11975
