As noted by Justice Antonin Scalia in a scathing dissent, the Court rules that the term “established by the State,” which appears seven times in the statute, can also mean “not established by the State.”

For those of us opposed to the economic catastrophe that is PPACA, this ruling may be a blessing in disguise.  More tomorrow on the intended and unintended consequences of the SCOTUS ruling.

But for starters, here is something to think about. We now know (per Gruber and many others) the portion of the law that ties subsidies to formation of State Exchange was intentional and DEFINITELY NOT an oversight as Judge Roberts as other apologists for PPACA would have us believe – leaving him “no choice” but to intervene in order to prevent chaos…. as if there was no other financial option besides the subsidies as prescribed and ineptly administered by the ObamaCare mandate.
