Justice John Roberts once again sided with the Obama administration in a favorable ruling for the survival of Obamacare.
TheBlaze's White House correspondent, Fred Lucas, reported:
In a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court handed President Barack Obama his second major win on his signature health care law, upholding nationwide tax subsidies for millions of Americans.
Chief Justice John Roberts, again siding with the court’s liberal wing, said in the majority opinion that Obamacare allows for residents of states that did not set up their own insurance exchanges to still receive subsidies to pay for their health coverage.

Needless to say, Glenn believed the news does not bode well for the direction of the country.
"Despite the way the law was written, despite all the commentary by the architect who described exactly what they were doing, they have rewritten the law again. This is the second time they've officially rewritten Obamacare to make it work. And they -- they can now get subsidies if you are in a state that did not create a state change. You could still get subsidies as opposed to what the law actually said. So there you go. You have another incredibly activist Supreme Court decision," Stu said was the news came in.
"The country as we know it has totally transformed," Glenn said. The system that our founders put together, which was follow the Constitution. And three equal, but separate branches of government that each have their own specific role is over. We no longer live in that America. That is done now. So anybody who is like, hey, we got to change it. No, you can't. It's done. It's done."
"The country as you know it and as it was designed, is done. It needs a reset. And it will get a reset because they have violated -- they violated mathematical principles. They violated $18 trillion in debt and printing money. It will reset because there's nothing left of this. So now the question is, when we reset, do we, A, tear each other apart, B, do we go to a new Constitution, or, C, do we hang on and reset to the original Constitution and become much more free and Libertarian in our nature?" he continued.
"But it's not going back to the way it was. It's not going back to the way it was."
Justice Scalia delivered a scathing response to the SCOTUS decision, declaring that this ruling makes it clear words no longer have meaning.
“But this Court’s two decisions on the Act will surely be remembered through the years. The somersaults of statutory interpretation they have performed (‘penalty’ means tax, ‘further [Medicaid] payments to the State’ means only incremental Medicaid payments to the State, ‘established by the State’ means not established by the State) will be cited by litigants endlessly, to the confusion of honest jurisprudence. And the cases will publish forever the discouraging truth that the Supreme Court of the United States favors some laws over others, and is prepared to do whatever it takes to uphold and assist its favorites.”
