  •  If Congress makes a typo it makes sense (0+ / 0-)

    for the Court to interpret it away.

    But if they make a logical error - including a provision that works against the overall objectives of a bill - I do not think that applies.  

    In this case, it just seems that Congress wanted to push states to establish exchanges and no one realized that the combination of the different sections would result in eliminating the employer mandate in states with federal exchanges.

    It isn't the Court's job to amend the law to fix a problem like that.  It is Congress's.
