Doug Schoen at Forbes.com thinks he has found a bit of insight in how SCOTUS will decide King v. Burwell.  While we are all speculating, it is worth a read.  His key points come from a decision released last week in which the justices sounded off on whether the objeective of a statute may supercede its text.

Jonathan Gruber is an interesting case.  He is an MIT professor that was one of the chief architects for Romneycare in Massachusetts and Obamacare.

You may recall the circuit panel ruling in Halbig v. Burwell this past Summer.  This is a little case with huge potential implications for the ACA.  I say potential because the panel holding was quickly vacated by the DC Circuit Court of Appeals.

Last week, the IRS released Notice 2014-69.  The notice states that plans that do not provide in-patient hospitalization or physician services do not provide "minimum value" as that term is defined by the ACA.

From the Houston Chronicle:  “Our whole industry believes this is the next big change, and like any change, there will be winners and losers from an industry standpoint,” he told me. “But this is a net win for small-business owners — they’re not going to make this change because they are losing, they are going to do it because it’s an economic advantage.”

With open enrollment for ‘Obamacare’ in 2015 starting in mid-November, experts are predicting big increases in premiums in many states.  According to an analysis from PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Health Research Institute, health plans sold through the ACA exchanges are going to increase an average of 7.5% next year.  (based on preliminary data from 27 states and the District of Columbia)

As we noted here, the DC Circuit has vacated its panel decision deciding the ACA shoud be enforced as it reads to NOT allow subsidies sold outside of state health exchanges (i.e., through the federal exchange).  This was a huge holding, but the odds were stacked against its survival within the more liberal DC Circuit.

Supreme Court decisions are a lot like used car sale ads in the newspaper.  You really should read the fine print.  Facebook and Twitter are ablaze today as people paying nominal attention to their email inbox or news feed on Facebook simultaneously rejoice and rage about the ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.
