Perhaps within a few minutes, and certainly no later than next Monday morning, we will learn the Supreme Court’s verdict on King v. Burwell, the lawsuit alleging Obamacare tax credits in at least 34 states are illegal.
Victory for the plaintiffs will stop tax credits to health insurers covering most Obamacare beneficiaries, causing those individuals to face the full cost of their premiums. Congress and the president will have a responsibility to respond.
Unfortunately, Congressional leaders appear unwilling to accept this opportunity, publicly lamenting that the president would veto any bill passed in response to King v. Burwell.
We can do better. In a special publication published by NCPA, I propose six reform “buckets”, which should satisfy the priorities of both Congress and the president, should King prevail.
