Republican Introduces Bill Requiring SCOTUS To Enroll In Ocare

An interesting, albeit toothless, piece of legislation

(The Hill) A House Republican on Thursday proposed forcing the Supreme Court justices and their staff to enroll in ObamaCare.

Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) said that his SCOTUScare Act would make all nine justices and their employees join the national healthcare law’s exchanges.

“As the Supreme Court continues to ignore the letter of the law, it’s important that these six individuals understand the full impact of their decisions on the American people,” he said.

“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.

Babin’s potential legislation would only let the federal government provide healthcare to the Supreme Court and its staff via ObamaCare exchanges.

“By eliminating their exemption from ObamaCare, they will see firsthand what the American people are forced to live with,” he added.

It’s a little too late, and Obama will never sign it. I feel no need to rehash the despicable and bizarre contortion decision from the court yesterday. There are more suits coming. There will certainly be suits filed over forcing people to pay a tax via the individual mandate, which is what Roberts punted to with the previous big decision. Then we have this

Republicans in Congress are moving toward a plan to use a special budgetary process to repeal ObamaCare, after the Supreme Court ruled for a second time to uphold the controversial law.

Since last year’s elections, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has proposed using budget reconciliation to repeal large chunks of the law.

Again, a little too late, and Obama won’t sign it. Charles Krauthammer says Ocare is here to stay until a Republican wins the White House (and, of course, controls Congress). Even then, it may be too late. The time to destroy Ocare was 2012, prior to any of it being implemented. How often are bad laws repealed, especially big big big ones? Ocare already has its tentacles insinuated with a giant chunk of the economy.

Of course, Ocare is doing a good job in collapsing on its own. Costs are out of control, state implemented Exchanges are way over budget and collapsing, and consumer costs are untenable. What’s the point of health insurance when it’s too expensive (deductibles) to use?

Regardless, it is not “settled law”. Liberals refuse to accept anything as settled when they do not like the rulings/laws. Nor will we. And Ocare, let’s not forget, is still underwater in virtually every poll.

    Teach all of the polls of people who have actually signed up for ACA show high degrees of satisfaction
    The national rate of increase in health care costs are not skyrocketing they are at historic lows

  2. John says:

    And Teach those polls that show that that 51% of Americans don’t approve of ACA
    If you actually looked. You would see that at least 12% disapprove if ACA because it doesn’t go far enough they want a stronger ACA
    But if course if you live in a rightwing bubble no one probably bothered to tell you that

    Maybe people need to stop being federal citizens and return back to being a state citizen.

    Then you are exempt from paying income tax of your federal and state levels. (The state clause is that an income tax is only required to be paid if you are required to pay a federal income tax).

    But as I have stated in other posts, after the civil war, the federal government eliminated the state’s as soveign independent states and made all its citizens federal.

    It would require a mass awakening by the American people to return our nation back to a federal system rather than a national system of government.

    Teach we all know how busy this GOP led Congress is, but in view of the legislation passed by the House requiring the Supremes to sign up for ACA do you think their next legislation will be requiring all the Supremes to gay marry?

  5. john says:

    In the USA 30% of our healthcare dollars go to administration and profit. In other countries like Israel Germany Switzerland that figure is about 5%

    Ok, it was such a stupid remark that I have to address it. Maybe you were just trying to be funny…

    Requiring the supremes to marry gay vs be subjected to the same government healthcare market place is apples and oranges. It’s not even close to the same thing.

    The reason for the requirement of the supremes to be subject to the same laws that they themselves unfortunately are the final arbiters of, is because the constitutions of the several states actually do have a requirement that all laws be uniform in nature and no one individual or group of individuals be given different rules or exemptions.

    The problem today is that is all we have now is different rules for different groups. We have no laws that are uniform in nature, including murder.

    If I have a fancy uniform with a shiny badge I can kill all day long and be only subject to an internal investigation of my own department and rarely, if ever face charges of murder in which if the same circumstances persisted but the shooter was not a uniformed officer, they would be treated differently under the law, and no benefit of doubt be given to them before they are kidnapped and serparated from their friends and family.

    Legislatures, law enforcement, judges, prosecutors and the works all have special exemptions and immunities that completely separate them from the “commoners”. It’s no wonder criminals seek government employment….. It’s their best protection!

    thanks Michael

    i agree and those who support big government are the ones looking for the exemptions and special favors
