    This will actually cause a massive political headache for...Republicans. People in states without state exchanges will, now, be extremely angry to see their health care premiums go up because Republican fuckheads screwed them over.

    •  Agree with your first point, not the second (1+ / 0-)

      Political cases have to be made to the idiocracy and Democrats are lousy at it.  And the media?  Do we even need to imagine?

      The damned courts in this age have become nothing more than a legislature in robes.  If you have a GOP majority, we know what the ruling will be.

    •  If this presents a problem for Republicans (1+ / 0-)

      Some grandstanding Democrat should start publicly campaigning for the obvious legislative fix that would make this case irrelevant.

      Start applying pressure now instead of waiting for things to work their way through the courts.

    •  Well if they disallow the subsidies then (0+ / 0-)

      anyone who received such federal subsidies will be forced to pay them back, with interest and penalties since they were never legal to begin with.  And since by law the government can take everything except ~$400-$500 a month that will mean lots of people who will be out on the streets.  Sounds like a good way to start a (violent) revolution to me.  After all, if you are going to be out on the streets for the rest of your life or even possibly in prison over it what do you have to lose by taking out some Republican state representatives?  After all, what's the worst they can do, execute you?

      You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.
