Killing Obamacare by Legal Assassination

Timothy Egan argues that “Republicans are attempting one of the most brazen manipulations of the legal system in modern times. To pull it off, they’re relying on a toxically politicized judiciary to make law, and to make a mockery of everything that conservative legal scholars profess to believe.”

“In less than two weeks’ time, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in King v. Burwell — the net result of a well-orchestrated, well-financed, five-year campaign to kill President Obama’s signature achievement by legal assassination.”

“So, consider just who stands to lose most if the health care subsidies for people in two-thirds of the states are denied … More than 80 percent of them are lower- or middle-income people, working part time or full. Most of them are white. And majority of them are in the South. So much for helping your base.”

“So long as judges do their dirty work, Republicans don’t have a problem with politicizing the judiciary.”
