The District of Columbia Federal Appeals Court today ruled against Obamacare subsidies, dealing the so-called ′Affordable Care Act′ a potential death blow. The court′s panel of three judges determined that the language of the ACA prohibits subsidies among those seeking insurance coverage in the 36 states that elected to not set up their own health insurance exchanges. This will impact more than 5 million of the nearly 9 million who have signed up for Obamacare. This ruling will guarantee more chaos within the Internal Revenue Service and will eventually put Barack Obama and his signature legislation back in front of the Supreme Court. The decision today will also spell a major increase in the cost of Obamacare to its subscribers. So much for the myth that the ACA will lower the cost of health insurance.

Oh, and it is a myth! Funny how Liberals and other defenders of Obama will try and quote reports and studies, such as a recent one by the Kaiser Family Foundation showing that health insurance costs have increased less under Obama than during the George W. Bush years. Especially considering two very important facts that the Liberals chose to ignore. The same organization has done other studies showing how some 90 million Americans will lose their health insurance, as well as how premiums will skyrocket more than 40%! The other fact ignored is that the reason why Obamacare is only seeing a modest increase at the moment is because Obama has postponed much of the ACA until after he leaves office in 2017. Those executive actions making over two dozen changes to the law without the approval of Congress are the reason for this.

Once again, we see what a terrible law the ACA is. Perhaps a lesson that Congress should read the bill first before voting on it? This is why a Federal Appeals Court struck down Obamacare subsidies, because the language of the law is flawed. Bad enough that Obamacare will ruin our healthcare system and eventually destroy the private health insurance industry. The dummy Democrats, led by Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid could not even word the Affordable Care Act properly!
