I suspect it will be overturned. Even Roberts can see just how ridiculous this issue is. Just because a state refuses to set up their own exchange, for political reason, you will let people die, live in pain and smothering debt without hope?

Who knows any more. Taking away subsidies for small businesses will not be good, they can't compete with large companies who used to get cheaper rates than they do. With the aca, they can have access to lower rates. Not sure why republicans are celebrating the crushing of small business. Edit: See links for Obamacare to small businesses.

this is not a moral case. it is a case of legalities and interpretation of legal wording. One side claims that the language in ObamaCare actually restricts subsidies to state-run exchanges -- of which there are only 14 -- and does not authorize them to be given in the 36 states that use the federally run system. The court agreed. The other side claims that the wording of the law is ambiguous enough to include people who enrolled in the federal exchanges. People need to stop interjecting emotional and moral dilemma into matters of law.

no reason why the subsidies should be upheld, it is clearly written that it is the states responsibility and not the feds

74% of ACA Republican recipients love it. It will be a real good idea to tick off more people, on your own side yet.

What subsidies? Farm subsidies for red state agribusiness? Extraction subsidies for right-leaning miners, oil drillers, and other polluters? Or "economic incentives" the effectively reduce pretty much all corporate taxes to nil? Based on your phrasing, I suspect you're talking about some tiny subsidy granted poor people. But don't look at the elephant in the room! Corporate subsidies are just hunky-dory with you!
