    ...you're celebrating, because affordable care for the masses is probably going down, just like you hoped.

    Serious legal thinkers (read: not glib aginners or anyone on FoxNews) think is a drawing error that will be corrected rather than anything else. Anyhow, it only hurts red states.

    Judges of what is considered the second highest court in the land are not serious legal thinkers? But you are right - the decision will put additional pressure on states which have not created exchanges to do so. Assuming the decision isn't overturned by other serious legal thinkers.

    I will cheer this from the opinion:

    We reach this conclusion, frankly, with reluctance. At
    least until states that wish to can set up Exchanges, our ruling
    will likely have significant consequences both for the millions
    of individuals receiving tax credits through federal Exchanges
    and for health insurance markets more broadly. But, high as
    those stakes are, the principle of legislative supremacy that
    guides us is higher still. Within constitutional limits, Congress
    is supreme in matters of policy, and the consequence of that
    supremacy is that our duty when interpreting a statute is to
    ascertain the meaning of the words of the statute duly enacted
    through the formal legislative process. This limited role
    serves democratic interests by ensuring that policy is made by
    elected, politically accountable representatives, not by
    appointed, life-tenured judges.


    Dead on.

    I just wanted to read that again.



    I wonder if some of the scotus members agree figuratively because I'm not so sure they do in reality.

    I think, to their great shame, far too many judges at every level fail to understand or apply these principles.
