Tea Party Patriots Denounce SCOTUS Ruling in King v. Burwell

Atlanta, Ga. – Just now, in a 6 - 3 ruling, the Supreme Court upheld the federal government’s right to provide subsidies in states that did not set up their own exchanges, despite the clear language of the law. Under Section 1311 of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), the federal government is only permitted to provide subsidies to individuals who purchase health insurance from “an exchange established by the states.” However, the IRS has been acting in defiance of the law, providing subsidies and imposing taxes that were never authorized by Congress in states that did not establish their own exchanges. As Justice Scalia stated during oral ...

SCOTUS takes on Obamacare, round two

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in King v. Burwell. The stakes [1] couldn’t be higher. At issue is the legality of Obamacare subsidies. The Obama Administration must argue it has the legal authority to issue subsidies in all 50 states, even though the Affordable Care Act only allows for subsidies through an “exchange established by the state.” That very point was driven home by none other than Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, who admitted in 2012 that [2], "[I]f you're a state and you don’t set up an Exchange, that means your citizens don’t get their tax credits. “ If the court upholds the challenge, it ...

SCOTUS deals two blows to the Obama Administration

Lost in the kerfuffle this week over the Hobby Lobby ruling was another Supreme Court hit to big government. That’s right – SCOTUS closed its 2014 term with two rebukes for the Obama Administration. The lesser-known case, Harris v. Quinn, centered around[1] whether states can pass laws that require all public employees to pay union dues, regardless of whether they want to be in a union or not. In a 5-4 ruling, the court ruled that no, public-sector employees like policemen, firefighters or teachers, cannot be forced to pay even partial dues to a union they don’t intend to ever join. Some might argue that the court’s relatively narrow ...

SCOTUS Rulings: Victory with Vigilance

Just before adjourning for the session, The Supreme Court of the United States delivered another blow to an administration whose government overreach has not only trampled on citizens’ rights but violated the laws of our nation. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties shouldered a lawsuit that won a validation for the First Amendment and religious liberty. The ruling comes on the heels of another recent decision where President Obama was rebuked for unconstitutional recess appointments in 2012. As Senators Mike Lee (Utah) and Ted Cruz (Texas) pointed out last week, these overreaches are not anomalies. They are part of a long list of encroach...
