The Obama administration is touting its better-than-expected ObamaCare enrollment period as it turns to next month’s pivotal Supreme Court fight over the healthcare law.
Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell argued Wednesday that the 11.4 million sign-ups show the law “is now an important part of everyday lives of millions of Americans.”
She also argued that people are “tired of the back and forth here in Washington” about the law, which she stressed was here to stay.
“While we have more work to do, the numbers tell the story, and the story is clear. The Affordable Care Act is working and families and businesses and taxpayers are all better off as a result,” Burwell told reporters.
The Supreme Court will hear arguments next month on whether it is legal for subsidies to be distributed to people who buy health insurance on the federal exchange, HealthCare.gov.
The challengers say a provision in ObamaCare stipulates that the subsidies can only be provided to people who purchase insurance from an exchange established by a state.
The Obama administration rejects that interpretation, saying it's clear that the law was written to make subsidies available to everyone who qualifies.
..and millions don't want it forced upon them. Some of us mean it. The numbers will begin to expose themselves as enforcement ramps up to being more brutal. I figure we all may meet in a gulag someday.
I'll go to a dirt nap first !
IF YOU GET MY DRIFT...
Liars and Lunes are in charge.
Of course, it's all lies,lies and more lies. I guarantee you, there are many millions more that want Ovomitcare to disappear than want it to stay.
That would be the ones who are getting it for free, not the ones paying for it ! Let's not forget the 40 plus million illegals !
they need to pay for their own health care. do not expect me to pay my families health care plus yours. you who want this get your heads out of obamas ass.
That law was illegally written by democraps only. Not one republican signed onto it. It was also a closed door meeting, president with democraps only. There should not be any subsidies. If there is, I'm sure it's for all the illegals. It was started in the senate, not the house.
Since when does minority rule?
It was forced upon them by morons that lied to us and said trash like, we will find out what is in it after we sign it. What moron believes this.These socialist ObamaDON'Tcare bastards are killing us.
YOU'RE NOT FREE when you are forced to do something you don't want to do or can't afford to do. AND YOU ARE A SLAVE if you are forced and fined to comply with no choice.
And that is what we get when we vote into power a MARXIST/COMMUNIST/ISLAMIST DICTATORSHIP. Too many low-information voters and just plain idiots did vote for national suicide and now we are all paying the price for that mass stupidity.
