More judicial overreach…
Check it out:
Obama’s health-care law for the second time in three years, weighing an attack on tax credits designed to help millions of people afford insurance.
An hour-long argument Wednesday in Washington will provide the first real clues about the justices’ views on an appeal by four Virginia residents who would block the subsidies in at least 34 states.
A decision halting the credits might unravel the Affordable Care Act, making other core provisions ineffective and potentially causing the market for individual insurance policies to collapse in much of the country. Hospitals would potentially be left with billions of dollars in unpaid bills.
“This would be the greatest instance of judicial overreach in the modern history of the court,” Senator Chris Murphy, a Democrat from Connecticut, told reporters on Tuesday.
