Obamacare Saved By Conservatives

Here’s what Republicans thought they’d be hearing today, “Ladies and gentleman, we got ‘em.” Turns out, no, ladies and gentleman we got you. So all those conservatives who’ve been dying to get rid of Obamacare . . . how many times have they voted to repeal Obamacare in the House . . . over 50 times!

Cenk Uygur (The Young Turks) breaks it down. Is it finally time for conservatives to give up on getting rid of Obamacare? Tell us what you think in the comments below.

The latest and possibly the last serious effort to cripple Obamacare through the courts has just failed.

On Thursday, for the second time in three years, the Supreme Court rejected a major lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act — thereby preserving the largest expansion in health coverage since the creation of Medicare and Medicaid half a century ago.

The stakes of the case, King v. Burwell, were enormous. Had the plaintiffs prevailed, millions of people who depend upon the Affordable Care Act for insurance would have lost financial assistance from the federal government. Without that money, most of them would have had to give up coverage altogether. And the loss of so many customers would have forced insurers to raise premiums, seriously disrupting state insurance markets.

But two of the court’s conservatives, Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Anthony Kennedy, joined the court’s four liberals in rejecting the lawsuit in a 6-3 decision. Roberts delivered the opinion for the majority. And the decision was a concise, stinging rebuke of the plaintiffs, who contended that Congress intended to write a law that would leave so many people without coverage, and cause such disarray.

“Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not destroy them,” Roberts wrote.

President Obama On Supreme Court Affordable Care Act Ruling. Obama Speaks On Obamacare Ruling

President Barack Obama hailed the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold a key obama provision of the Affordable Care Act on Thursday, calling it a “victory for hard-working Americans.” obama “After multiple challenges to this law before the Supreme Court, the Affordable Care Act is here to stay. This morning, the court held up a critical part of this law,” Obama said of the decision, which provided the administration with a significant victory. President Barack Obama reacted to the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Affordable Care Act Thursday, calling it a “victory” for hardworking Americans. “As the dust has settled, there can be no doubt that this law is working. It has changed, and in some cases, saved, American lives,” Obama said. “Today after more than 50 votes in Congress to repeal or weaken this law, after a presidential election based in part on preserving or repealing this law, after multiple challenges to this law in front of the Supreme Court, the Affordable Care Act is here to stay,” Obama added. president Obama repeatedly said the “law is working,” calling on Republicans to work to improve a law that he said has now been “woven into the fabric of America.” Obama Gains Vindication and Secures Legacy With Health Care …
New York Times-36 minutes ago Washington — The Supreme Court decision on Thursday to uphold most insurance subsidies in President Obama’s health care law is a validation of effort to … Supreme Court upholds nationwide tax subsidies under Obama … Supreme Court Upholds Obama’s Health-Law Subsidies Supreme Court upholds Obama health law subsidie Supreme Court hands Obama big health care win Reactions to Supreme Court’s ruling on Obamacare “What we’re not going to do is unravel what has been woven into the fabric of America,” he said.
It’s the second time in four terms the court has prevented the law from a major obstruction that would threaten its existence. The Affordable Care Act will again survive intact as the largest expansion of healthcare in half a century.
“The point is this is not an abstract thing anymore,” Obama said. “This is not a set of political talking points. This is reality. We can see how it is working. This law is working exactly as it’s supposed to. In many ways, this law is working better than we expected it to.”
He added: “This is healthcare in America. And unlike Social Security or Medicare, a lot of Americans don’t know what Obamacare is beyond all the political noise in Washington.” The key question in the case centered on whether the federal government had the ability to provide subsidies to help low-income Americans buy health insurance. The challengers in the case argued the way the law was written does not allow for subsidized insurance in states where the federal government had set up insurance exchanges. Instead, the challengers argued, insurance subsidies are allowed only in states that have set up their own exchanges. They pointed to a clause that they argued meant exchanges should be “established by the state,” but members of Congress who were involved in writing the law disputed characterization. Thirty-four states currently rely on the federal marketplace.The Supreme Court decision on Thursday to uphold most insurance subsidies in President Obama’s health care law is a validation of effort to fulfill the promise of expanding health care that has been the aspiration of every Democratic president since Harry S. Truman.
“In America health care is not a privilege for a few but a right for all,’’ Mr. Obama declared in the Rose Garden after the Supreme Court decision. The Affordable Care Act, he said, “is here to stay.’’
The ruling comes as Mr. Obama is about to score another major legislative accomplishment this week, with the passage of powerful new authority that will allow him to finish negotiations on a historic trade agreement with Pacific Rim nations. That bill, which he pushed over the objections of many in his party, will be on his desk for his signature this week.
But the Supreme Court decision is a bigger domestic political victory for Mr. Obama, whose health care legacy has always depended on the Affordable Care Act becoming as permanent a part of the American social safety net as Medicare and Social Security.
Obama touted the law’s provisions in his Rose Garden speech and called Thursday a “good day for America.”

“That’s when America soars. When we look out for one another. When we take care of each other. When we root for one another’s success. When we strive to do better and be better than the generation that came before us and try to build something better for generations to come,” Obama said.

Obamacare Part Of ‘Socialist-Communist Vision’, Says Bill O’Reilly

“Bill O’Reilly opened his show Tuesday night claiming that Obamacare is just an element of the ideal society liberals have in mind for the U.S.: a socialist state where money is taken from the rich to provide the poor with multitudes of services they cannot afford on their own. O’Reilly cited various clips of Democratic congresspeople and one MSNBC host to argue that Obamacare is part of this “socialist-communist vision.” He recapped all the “chaos” of Obamacare and the “perilous place” President Obama and the Democrats are in right now, saying the health care law is “part of a vision for the forced sharing of American assets.” He argued that most of the nation’s debt came from “providing entitlements and infrastructure” and said it’s a slippery slope to take a subculture of uneducated, unskilled people and letting the state pay for all kinds of services that cover them…”.* Ana Kasparian, Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?! and TYT Sports), and John Iadarola (TYT University and Common Room) break it down on The Young Turks.
