My Take On King v. Burwell

A lot of conservatives seem pretty upset with today's Obamacare ruling. I'm more disappointed than upset about it, mostly because the RINO's in congress really didn't have a plan to prevent the chaos that would have occurred if the ruling had gone the other way. 

Supreme Court Allows Nationwide Health Care Subsidies
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that President Obama’s health care law allows the federal government to provide nationwide tax subsidies to help poor and middle-class people buy health insurance, a sweeping vindication that endorsed the larger purpose of Mr. Obama’s signature legislative achievement.
The 6-to-3 ruling means that it is all but certain that the Affordable Care Act will survive after Mr. Obama leaves office in 2017, and has a greater chance of becoming an enduring part of America’s social safety net.
For the second time in three years, the law survived an encounter with the Supreme Court. But the court’s tone was different this time. The first decision, in 2012, was fractured and grudging, while Thursday’s ruling was more assertive.~snip~
 The truth is we brought Obamacare on ourselves by electing Obama and and a majority democrat congress and house and with it getting Pelosi and Reid into positions of power.

To quote Chief Justice Roberts:
"It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.”
Obamacare will exist in some form into perpetuity even if the republican party offers us something other than the RINO milquetoasts they keep putting in front of us.
The effort needs to go towards fixing what we have because now it will never disappear.
