Obamacare Back to the Supreme Court?  
 House Minority (then Majority) Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) famously said, of the Affordable Care Act, `2e have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.` One of the things that the Obama administration found was that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act repeatedly says insurance subsidies are available `through an Exchange established by the State.`

Since 36 states choose not to establish Exchanges, the Federal government set up its famous or infamous Exchange. Other parts of the highly complex law provide that its taxes and `mandates` only apply where subsidized coverage exists.

The administration dealth with this problem by ignoring it, Two Federal Appeals Courts have issued conflicting decisions, making it likely that Obamacare will be back at the Supreme Court next year.

Even before then, the Obama Administration faces a big decision. Last year at this time, it put off the so-called `Employer Mandate,` which requires that all employers provide insurance and that those policies meet its guidelines.

Whereas millions of people with individual policies found that Obama`s famous statement, `If you like your health insurance, you can keep it` was not true. This time around it will be tens of millions of people.

The administration has already put off the laws penalties for medium-sized businesses until 2016, but has yet to finalize the rest of the employer part of the law.

While the Supreme Court is supposed to be above politics, many analysts think that the decision by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts to support the law was all about politics.

Most analysts expect Roberts to support the law again, but the outcome of the 2014 elections as well as the success (or problems) with the law should the employer mandate be implemented might impact his desision.



Will Roberts Work His Magic Again?
