The U.S. Supreme Court could well blow the Democrats’ cover in King v. Burwell if it rules that people in the 37 states that did not establish an Exchange cannot legally get taxpayer subsidies for health insurance.
The subsidies hide the reality. People generally look only at what they themselves have to pay. They do not care what faceless taxpayers are paying to insurance companies for their policies.
Just when you think it can’t get any more anti-business, anti-jobs, anti-growth, anti-capitalist, and just plain economically nonsensical among presidential candidates than Hillary Clinton’s ’s “Don’t let anyone tell you, you know, corporations and businesses create jobs,” along comes Vermont senator and self-defined socialist Bernie Sanders running for the Democratic presidential nomination with the statement that there’s nothing wrong with the federal government taxing away 90 cents out of every dollar earned at top income levels.
