SC ATTORNEY GENERAL: “BROAD, ABSTRACT” DECISION DESIGNED TO PRESERVE “BROKEN” LAW

|| By FITSNEWS || S.C. attorney general Alan Wilson rebuked the U.S. Supreme Court’s shocking verdict on Obamacare – arguing the high court’s justices went way out on a limb in order to preserve U.S. president Barack Obama‘s disastrous social medicine law.

“Today, a majority of the U.S. Supreme Court interpreted the plain meaning of this law in the broadest and most abstract way possible in order to save a broken government-run healthcare system,” Wilson said.

Indeed they did … again.  As we noted in our original coverage of this deplorable ruling, the court “ignored the clear language – and explicit intent of Obamacare.”

Wilson agreed, siding with dissenting justice Antonin Scalia, who wrote that the court’s decision in Halbig v. Burwell “changes the usual rules of statutory interpretation for the sake of the Affordable Care Act.”

It does … dramatically.  And dangerously.

While criticizing the court’s ruling, Wilson cautioned that the case has never been about the debate over the efficacy of socialized medicine.

“This case has never been solely about the merits of providing healthcare to the American people, but more about the unconstitutional way the Affordable Care Act was written and implemented,” Wilson added.

That’s true.  Obamacare is a disaster, but that’s not what this case was about.  This case was about the rule of law: And whether the court would uphold it or ignore it.

They chose the latter … and as a result, thirty-six states will continue being subjected to what amounts to the greatest instance of taxation without representation in American history.
