GOP Loses Big As Supreme Court Preserves Obamacare 6-3

The US Supreme Court yesterday ruled 6-3 in favor of preserving subsidies for the Affordable Care Act, handing President Obama a definitive win on his signature law. For the Republicans, this was a stinging loss, the final nail in the coffin on their attempts to undo what they have called Obamacare.

The case at the heart of the ruling was King Vs. Burwell, a legal challenge that was based on a technicality. The Los Angeles Times explained that legal experts saw it, “as a fatuous misreading of the law and a tortured effort to bend the process of statutory interpretation for ideological ends.”

But privately some Republicans expressed relief, knowing that if 6.2 million Americans relying on subsidies had suddenly lost them, the GOP would have paid a stiff political price.
