How Conservative Lawyers Are Plotting To Land Obamacare Subsidies Case In Supreme Court

TPM reports:

Conservative legal opponents of Obamacare are plotting to land their case in the Supreme Court, where they see a real chance that the justices will embrace their statutory argument and wipe out subsidies for millions of Americans.

The legal minds behind the Halbig and King lawsuits seeking to invalidate federal exchange subsidies are in a bind. The only court ruling in their favor so far may be reversed if the full D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals accepts the Obama administration's petition to rehear the case decided by a three-judge panel. Three other courts have ruled for the law, and so challengers can only win the case definitively at the Supreme Court.
Leftist fears in writing. An article well worth your time.
