    Hmm, I thought there was a thing for it on the donations page but it's for donating anonymously.

    Yeah, and I don't have paypal, and the other option won't come through.

    I'll have to ask.

    Too many threads on this, but this is more or less my post for the other one...

    The dissenting opinion is right, this decision is a gross misinterpretation of the actual ACA language. Some seven times in ACA is specifies subsidies and tax credits though "Exchange established by the State." The majority in this 6-3 decision just decided that the Secretary of Health and Human Services, and by extension, the Department of Health and Human Services equates to a State. The argument can now be made that by precedence on what is equal to a State. If a law references a State, the Federal government can now argue any relevant department is now capable of being involved in that definition.

    Looks like the Red States dodged the bullet.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Tyranny wins the day once again, through our inept Supreme Court. Another loss for the people and our Constitution, which tries to protect us from government tyranny.

    Thank God the failure that is Obamacare can continue and die slowly instead of being cut down by the SCOTUS. A great day indeed!

    First, they voted with the government and the insurance companies over the people to force us to purchase their product. Can you imagine if the government said we all had to buy a new car every year from GM?

    And now this. Oh, it only says "states" and not the federal government? No problem, will just add it in. Talk about legislating from the bench. What a disaster this court is.

    Does this set a precedent that the high court now needs to interview the lead sponsors of legislation to determine intent when reviewing ambiguity in law.

    Can anyone now ask for clarification of amendments to the Constitution?

    Cheaper for who? Cheaper how? Both premiums and deductibles have significantly increased.
