President Barack Obama committed “constitutional indecency” when he criticized the Supreme Court for taking up a case challenging Obamacare subsidies, said conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer.
“This should be an easy case. Frankly, it probably shouldn’t have even been taken up,” Obama told reporters at the G7 Summit in Germany on Monday. “It’s not something that should be done based on a twisted interpretation of four words and a couple-thousand-page piece of legislation.”
Obama further said he is optimistic the Supreme Court will “play it straight when it comes to interpretation.”
A court ruling is expected this month, and if it goes against the president’s wishes of subsidies for people in states that didn’t set up exchanges, it would strike a blow to the law.
