After Thursday’s Supreme Court ruling on government subsidies pertaining to the Affordable Care act, there was a wave of outrage coming from many, specifically on the right.
It’s a ruling that many rightfully find unfair, as the Supreme Court essentially twisted the meaning of a word in order to make a convoluted law – in the opinion of the Supreme Court Justices – work properly.
But one Republican legislator from Texas has decided to make sure that the Supreme Court understands the full weight of the law they’ve ruled on.
Rep. Brian Babin proposed a law he dubbed “SCOTUScare,” which would force the Supreme Court Justices and their employees to sign up for Obamacare.
“That’s why I introduced the SCOTUScare Act to require the Supreme Court and all of its employees to sign up for Obamacare,” Babin said. “By eliminating their exemption from Obamacare, they will see firsthand what the American people are forced to live with.”
This legislation would seem very fair, as those who would pass the legislation should be subject to the legislation.
