Well, the Supreme Court has apparently made a liar of me. It decided on Thursday. The ruling was 6-3 in favor of the subsidies. Not entirely surprising. And in terms that rather strongly hinted to opponents to quit bringing these lawsuits, they don't want to hear anymore. That is surprising. Further comment postponed until I have had the chance to read the decision.
PS: Our side is all saying whew! Opponents are incoherent with rage. But I am betting that a lot of Republican members of Congress and state governors are relieved too.
