Is the Supreme Court's Ruling Upholding Obamacare an Attack on U.S. Rule of Law?

Deborah Hamilton : Jun 25, 2015 : Charisma News

"...When we start allowing the loose interpretation of law based on after-the-fact claims of intent, the foundation of the rule of law crumbles." -Twila Brase, Citizens' Council for Health Freedom.

The United States Supreme Court today announced its decision on the landmark Affordable Care Act case, King v. Burwell, which analyzed whether federal premium subsidies issued to residents in states without a state-established exchange are allowable. (Photo: Reuters/via Charisma News)

The Court ruled that subsidies provided through HealthCare.gov are indeed lawful, meaning that the federal exchange, which was hastily built after most states refused to build their own exchange, can continue issuing subsidies. This, says Twila Brase, president and co-founder of Citizens' Council for Health Freedom, was not how the Affordable Care Act was written.

Brase is at the Supreme Court Building now, after the decision was handed down.

"This disastrous decision is a terrible attack on the rule of law because it sends the message that the rule of law does not matter; whoever has most power, the strongest attorneys and the biggest voice wins," Brase said. "Without the rule of law, it becomes the rule of power—all up to interpretation. Claims of intent and outside interpretations of intent will now rule, not the actual words written in the law. When we start allowing the loose interpretation of law based on after-the-fact claims of intent, the foundation of the rule of law crumbles."
