The Supreme Court just upheld a key part of the Affordable Care Act in the case King v. Burwell, allowing 6.4 million people to keep tax subsidies they were getting to buy health insurance on the federal exchange on Healthcare.gov. Justice Antonin Scalia is pissed.
Scalia’s dissent, in part:
This Court, however, concludes that this limitation would prevent the rest of the Act from working as well as hoped. So it rewrites the law to make tax credits available everywhere. We should start calling this law SCOTUScare.
Great line, but it sounds like sour grapes to me.
