… Today is A – Day [#Argument Day]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,March 4th,2015

.. yep , it is Argument Day .

.. today , arguments are held at the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of King v Burwell . Yep , it is another ObamaCrapCare care ..

.. except in this case , it is damn serious . Given the actions of the Government , and , in particular , the Infernal Revenue Service , it is absolutely critical ….

.. the Government feels that they can re – write and re – interpret statutes as they see fit . No , they cannot . The precedent that was set in the ruling Chevron v NRDC [commonly called ” Chevron Deference] . The government has some latitude , but only so much latitude in calling a spade a spade . In other words , they cannot engage in creative writing by rewriting and reinterpreting a statute …

.. Professor Jon Adler [of CWRU] and Michael Cannon [of the Cato Institute] really hit a home run when they did the ground – breaking research on their paper . They really hit the nail on the head . The government went too far …

.. now , it is up to the U.S. Supreme Court . One part of the decision is to make the tough decision . The Government royally screwed up . Someone needs to hold them to account for it . The other is to actually hold the government to account …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the legal ruling ..

.. Pruitt is another case that takes on the I.R.S. playing games with the federal exchange subsidies in ObamaCrapCare . The plain letter of the law does not allow for them . The I.R.S. tried to push this through , and people have fought them , tooth and nail …

.. this time , for the first time at the district court level , a district court judge has sided with the folks attempting to make the federal government hold itself to the plain letter of the law . Judicial doctrine gives the government a certain amount of leeway to implement a law . However , they are only given so much leeway …

.. this leeway [“Chevron Deference”] does require the Government to follow the law . Sometimes , the Government can be a little creative in its interpretation . However , it cannot go too far . If the Government does not follow the plain letter , text , and intent of the law , then un – uh …

.. that is what Pruitt v. Burwell has done . It has also done more …
