Cocky Obama says Supreme Court should’ve never taken up health care case; warns against ‘twisted interpretation’

President Obama lashed out at the Supreme Court, saying it should have never taken on a case challenging Obamacare subsidies.

The challenge, which the administration and its legal representatives have been fighting, involves whether those who signed up for insurance on the federal are entitled to subsidies.

Entire police dept. disbanded after councilwoman and her son were arrested.

Speaking to reporters at the G7 summit in Germany, Obama said a ruling against the subsidies would amount to a “twisted interpretation” of the law, Fox News reported.

“This should be an easy case. Frankly, it probably shouldn’t even have been taken up,” Obama said.

The administration has argued in court that the subsidies are valid through both state-run exchanges and exchanges run through Foes argue that the Affordable Care Act stipulates subsidies are only intended for those buying insurance on state-run exchanges.

The court decision, expected any day, could have far-reaching implications because millions would lose their insurance if the court rules against the administration.

Yet the Obama administration has faced criticism for declining the spell out what its contingency plan is if the court rules that way, instead voicing confidence that the Supreme Court will keep the program as is.

Obama again voiced that confidence on Monday, and urged the court not to rule otherwise.

He said it’s safe to “assume” the court will do what most legal scholars expect and “play it straight.” Obama said it has been well-documented that Congress never intended to exclude people who went through the federal exchange.

To rule the other way, the president said, would be a “contorted reading of the statute” and a “twisted interpretation.”

But if that does happen, Obama said, “that throws off how that exchange operates” and millions of people would lose subsidies.

“It’s a bad idea,” Obama said.

Obama closed out his remarks by saying of the possibility of the court ruling against him, “If somebody does something that doesn’t make any sense then it’s hard to fix.”

We agree, Mr. President.

The past six years have proven that.
