    GNB Political Wars Update

    King v. Burwell

    United State Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts,
    about whom it is said “always enjoys reading The Goliath’s GAW News”,
    is concerned how maverick Associate Justice PESTY will vote
    on that dang pending
    and really irritating King v. Burwell case…….

    Also Note: The habit of the Supreme Court wanting to review laws
    properly passed by the Legislative Branch
    is just soooo
    dern annoying……

    Headscratcher:
    Even the highly informed GNB staff is not sure how Justice Pesty got
    that fancy pants SCOTUS appointment ! Maybe it was a……
    …gulp…..”RECESS APPOINTMENT” !

    There is no way in **** that Pesty
    could get through
    the judicial review process and confirmation
    by the United States Senate.

    King v. Burwell

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    King v. Burwell, Halbig v. Burwell, Pruitt v. Burwell,
    and Indiana v. IRS
    are a set of related lawsuits
    challenging U.S. Treasury regulation, 26 C.F.R. § 1.36B-2(a)(1),
    issued under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).

    WHY BY THE IRS ???

    The challengers argue
    that the text of the ACA
    only allows for subsidies on state-run exchanges,
    and that the regulation as implemented
    by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS),
    providing for subsidies
    on state-run exchanges
    as well as federal exchanges,
    exceeded
    the
    authority
    Congress
    granted
    to
    it.

    Oral arguments expected to be held in March 2015
    and a decision issued by late June or early July 2015.

    Pesty has requested that the learned GSL,
    winner of many big cases.
    enter oral arguments and a brief.
    The GAW News Bureau has not been able to ascertain
    which side the GSL will be arguing
    and does not have any advance information
    on the preliminary research done by the GSL.

    Indiana is involved.

    In Indiana v. IRS
    the state of Indiana
    and multiple Indiana school districts
    are suing the IRS
    claiming that the employer mandate
    should not apply to schools or local governments.
    The IRS argued that the plaintiffs did not have standing to sue, but that argument was rejected and Judge William T. Lawrence in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana ruled that the case could proceed. Oral arguments occurred in October 2014 but a ruling has not been issued

    “At the End of the Day”

    It has been said that here are some unique personalities
    and some conformists sitting on the SCOTUS.

    Sooooo, will they vote to uphold the constitution
    or discard it entirely and pursue their own partisan political goals?

    …….”maverick Associate Justice PESTY”…….

    Interesting!

    We know that the free thinking bro Pesty
    will not be bound by the “ends justify the means” ploy,
    but how many other justices will support the constitution
    and break away and be real Mavericks?

    Four words that could deep-six Obamacare

    Richard Wolf, USA TODAY November 22, 2014

    WASHINGTON — The most serious challenge to President Obama’s health care law since it survived the Supreme Court by a single vote in 2012 isn’t a balky website, public opinion or the Republican takeover of Congress. It’s the Supreme Court — again.

    In a case likely to be heard in March and decided in June, the justices will dissect the meaning of four words.

    On average, the subsidies pay more than 75% of premium costs,
    or about $4,700 per year.

    That means that as the law now stands,
    the taxpayer will paying a fee or subsidy
    for EACH PERSON receiving the free benefit.

    $4,700 of tax funds transferred TO each person receiving the free subsidy.

    FOUR WORDS
    Do they say what they mean and mean what they say?
    Or not?

    Points of argument:
    1.)…..”established by the state”……

    2.)After it passed in March 2010, 36 Sovereign States
    decided not to establish separate state exchanges
    as the law ALLOWS.

    Those states would rely on the Federal Government to operate
    the exchanges.

    3.)In 2012, the Internal Revenue Service
    made the subsidies available
    in all states.
    The law’s challengers CLAIM
    they CANNOT be offered in exchanges
    operated by the federal government.
    Thirty-six states fit into that category.
