  1. For the moment, hypothetically assume this ruling stands up through SCOTUS. At that point, anyone on the federal exchanges will have been paying premiums lowered by subsides deemed illegal. Does that mean the millions paid to the carriers in subsidies covering the difference in the actual premium must be returned to the government, and if so, wouldn't the carriers then demand the policy holders pay the full amount of the premiums, not only going forward, but retroactive to the day those policies went into effect, in other words hitting those individuals for an average of over $4K each that they're not expecting?

  2. I am dismayed any more by how quickly some cast off Court decisions as nothing more than judicial/political activism. That's not the way the "law" should work. Whether this portion of Obamacare should stand or fall, just like State marriage laws and whatever, should rest on sound legal principles and analysis and not which "party" appointed the Judge(s) in the case. That would be truly sad for all of us if true. As an attorney with over 37 years of practice that I am proud of, I hope they are wrong.

  3. Why would I want to pay for your insurance? Buy your own.

  4. Thomas Paine, one of the fathers of the American Revolution, had it exactly right when he said in his book, The Age of Reason, that: The study of theology, as it stands in Christian churches, is the study of nothing; it is founded on nothing; it rests on no principles; it proceeds by no authorities; it has no data; it can demonstrate nothing; and it admits of no conclusion. Not any thing can be studied as a science, without our being in possession of the principles upon which it is founded; and as this is not the case with Christian theology, it is therefore the study of nothing." And so we have a $7.8 million dollar grant for the study of nothing. What a waste.

  5. I guess this is what happens when we have to pass the bill in order to know what's in the bill.
