Walker: States will not rescue ObamaCare in wake of court ruling

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker issued a threat to the Obama administration on Wednesday that if the Supreme Court rules against healthcare subsidies, states will not take steps to save the law.

“Governors across the country have been clear: If the Supreme Court strikes down the Obama executive overreach, we will not bail out Obama at the expense of the American people,” Walker wrote in an op-ed for CNN.com on Wednesday.

The looming court case, which Walker called “a turning point” for the law, could come as early as Thursday. If the administration loses, 6.4 million people could lose their financial aid under ObamaCare because they don’t live in the dozen or so states that run their own healthcare exchanges.

Walker has already said that he would not set up a state exchange, even if it means that 200,000 people in his state would no longer receive subsidies — which he acknowledges is “a big problem.”

He is among a handful of Republican governors, including Florida Gov. Rick Scott, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who have ruled out setting up their own exchanges.

Still, plenty more states have not yet said how they would handle the decision. Just two states — Delaware and Pennsylvania — have plans in place to set up an exchange, but many more could decide to do so if thousands of people's healthcare is at stake.

the admin already has pay offs in place ready for all the governors too get them to go along to get along believe me.just look how easily the congress and senate were bought off.

Tragically, but predictably, the "Supreme" Court has ruled in favor of nationwide subsidies.

First, the Court ruled that the mandate is a tax, this despite the Administration's insistence that the mandate wasn't a tax, and now the Court rules that the subsidies were intended to be for both federal and state exchanges, this despite Obamacare's clear intention to the contrary. This flies in the face of Gruber's, Obamacare's architect, clearly stated position on this issue.

When outrageous becomes the norm--and it has--we've already slipped passed the tipping point. Lawlessness at the highest reaches of this government is a plague. Lawlessness has become foundational. The Supreme Court once again makes an ass of itself and of the Law. Bastards!!!!!

The Obamacare subsity decision today is a POLITICAL DECISION.  It has no relationship to interpretation of what the law actually said.  This is a dangerous step by the Supreme Court because they have now decided to ignore what the law actually said and instead make a decision on "WHAT CONGRESS REALLY MEANT, BUT DID NOT SAY."  Using this principle, the Supreme Can rewrite any law to please their owners and will do so in the future.

THE NOT SO SUPREME COURT. THEIR IMAGE IS NO LONGER SACRED. 4.5 AMERICAN TO 4.5 COMMUNIST. NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NAZI SUPREME COURT WHO KILLED KIDS AND ADULTS TO THE ROE V WADE MURDERERS WHO ONLY KILL KIDS.

SOONER THAN THEY WISH THEY WILL MEET THE BIG BANGER. THE BOSS OF THE GALAXIES.

THE FIRST PLEA THEY WILL GIVE IS I DID NOT REALIZE IT WAS YOUR CREATION. THEN THEY WILL EXPERIENCE REAL GLOBAL WARMING.

PEOPLE ARE NOT HAPPY WITH OBAMACARE  IT IS UNFAIR    UNCONSTITUTIONAL   UNAFFORDABLE

Did you miss something Richard?

I think we are in for a long hard ride but in the end we will be where we want to be.

The supreme court has ruled on it and it isn't good. Again, the taxpayer ha to pick up the bill. UGH !!!!!

My thought 7 years ago was if this dirt bag ever were to get elected that would be the end of a open free society. The left now owns the country. They (progressives) own most of the businesses and with this government will destroy/take over those they don't own. Of the top 100% wealthiest most powerful in the US 51% are known Jewish (untouchable parasitic communist leftist). The numbers are even higher due to not all reveal that they are Jewish. Those 51% represent only 2.25-2.5% of the population. I would bet they are democrats/leftist who own the most important business in the US and other countries like 90% of the media, the music and entertainment industry (total communication control) newspaper and magazine circulation, Hollywood, the dot com companies, the telephone market, (land line and cellar) they run the IRS, EPA and other government agencies, etc., an now control (own) the internet. They control perhaps 90-95% of the education system, the banking system, the Federal Reserve bank. They have control of 51% or more of register voters while consistently stealing several hundred thousand to perhaps millions of votes every election.

I stated years ago that the country is most likely gone. Today that is even more accurate. Those filthy bastards. Before Obama's done the government will have destroyed hundreds of thousand of middle class businesses and others with the left absorbing the customer base. Check mate. Did i not say we need to crush the left many times in the past? We took the least traveled road, the high road, just what the left anticipated-hoped we'd do. Now they own us.I'm so sorry to say that it's perhaps too late. No one can tell what tomorrow will bring.

Perhaps God has a plan after the chaos and sorrow that's sure to come tomorrow.

Soynds like obama STRONG arm tactics. Here in Cali ol moonbeam embraced the ACA and obolas immigration.
Moonbeans brown nosing obola. Hey look at me....I wanna please da big guy...LOL....SIKO

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
