Republican Introduces Bill Requiring SCOTUS To Enroll In Ocare

An interesting, albeit toothless, piece of legislation

(The Hill) A House Republican on Thursday proposed forcing the Supreme Court justices and their staff to enroll in ObamaCare.

Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) said that his SCOTUScare Act would make all nine justices and their employees join the national healthcare law’s exchanges.

“As the Supreme Court continues to ignore the letter of the law, it’s important that these six individuals understand the full impact of their decisions on the American people,” he said.

“That’s why I introduced the SCOTUScare Act to require the Supreme Court and all of its employees to sign up for ObamaCare,” Babin said.

Babin’s potential legislation would only let the federal government provide healthcare to the Supreme Court and its staff via ObamaCare exchanges.

“By eliminating their exemption from ObamaCare, they will see firsthand what the American people are forced to live with,” he added.

It’s a little too late, and Obama will never sign it. I feel no need to rehash the despicable and bizarre contortion decision from the court yesterday. There are more suits coming. There will certainly be suits filed over forcing people to pay a tax via the individual mandate, which is what Roberts punted to with the previous big decision. Then we have this

Republicans in Congress are moving toward a plan to use a special budgetary process to repeal ObamaCare, after the Supreme Court ruled for a second time to uphold the controversial law.

Since last year’s elections, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has proposed using budget reconciliation to repeal large chunks of the law.

Again, a little too late, and Obama won’t sign it. Charles Krauthammer says Ocare is here to stay until a Republican wins the White House (and, of course, controls Congress). Even then, it may be too late. The time to destroy Ocare was 2012, prior to any of it being implemented. How often are bad laws repealed, especially big big big ones? Ocare already has its tentacles insinuated with a giant chunk of the economy.

Of course, Ocare is doing a good job in collapsing on its own. Costs are out of control, state implemented Exchanges are way over budget and collapsing, and consumer costs are untenable. What’s the point of health insurance when it’s too expensive (deductibles) to use?

Regardless, it is not “settled law”. Liberals refuse to accept anything as settled when they do not like the rulings/laws. Nor will we. And Ocare, let’s not forget, is still underwater in virtually every poll.
