WASHINGTON  — In another dramatic blow to a key Obamacare program, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that individuals cannot use tax credits or subsidies to buy health insurance on federally run exchanges.

The divided three-judge panel said those cost-sharing subsidies can be used only through state-run health exchanges, not the federal exchanges.

The court’s decision could make it harder to ensure affordable coverage for millions in the 34 states that have chosen not to set up their own regulated health insurance marketplaces.

The administration is expected to appeal the ruling.

    Womanishi will be here shortly to give us his thoughts on this. She first has to get her thoughts from faux news because she is unable to form her own opinion.

    It usually helps to read a bill before lying non stop about it to get it passed. This debacle is going to implode thank goodness.

    Because the Most Intelligent Legal Eagle is so interested in the American Justice System, with
    Holder as his DOInjustice, the administration will ask the full 11-member appeals court, set up to suit Obama, to hear the case. The full U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit has seven judges appointed by Democratic presidents, including four by Obama. If that doesn’t work in his behalf, he will personally and illegally tweak it again to suit. Illegal and Lawless is his name.
