Administration prepares for Court Showdown Over Obamacare Subsidies (Washington Times – Tom Howell Jr.)

The Obama administration has prepared for Wednesday’s Supreme Court showdown by spending an extraordinary amount of time not just arguing the law, but the possible bad outcomes if the justices strike down Obamacare’s subsidies in most states... Continue here.


“David Vitter gets it.  His amendment to prohibit elected officials, political appointees and their staffers from receiving taxpayer subsidies and special treatment shows that he understands the fundamental inequity of one set of rules for the political elite and a different set of rules for everyone else. If the American people can’t get an exemption from the disaster of ObamaCare, neither should Congress and the Obama Administration. By adding this amendment to Harry Reid’s measure stripping free speech from the First Amendment, Senator Vitter offers a striking contrast in how the two parties in Congress see the people they represent. ...

Roberts Jr.’s questions were deeply skeptical of the administration’s position. They ...

(VIDEO) Tea Party Patriots CEO Jenny Beth Martin’s Remarks from CPAC

Hello, CPAC! You know, the President of the United States last addressed this gathering eight years ago. Do the math – it was a different president then. As he sat in the Oval Office, preparing for that speech, he came across a phrase in the draft that confused him. So he asked, “What is this movement you keep talking about in the speech?” The speechwriter, stunned, responded. “Well, the CONSERVATIVE movement,” he answered. “You know, the one that started back in the sixties, when conservative groups first took root.” That apparently didn’t sit well with the President. “Let me tell you something,” he said. ...
