Judge Nap: Here’s My ‘Gut Feeling’ on SCOTUS’ Imminent ObamaCare Ruling
Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano predicted this morning that the Supreme Court will side with the Obama administration in its imminent ruling on ObamaCare subsidies.
The health care law says that those subsidies were designed to apply only to people who signed up for health exchanges that were "established by the state," not by the federal government.
Napolitano explained that the issue is if those four words - "established by the state" - are enough to invalidate the entire 2,700-page law.
He said he has a gut feeling that the court will uphold ObamaCare, based on his decades of studying Supreme Court opinions, his personal familiarity with how some of the justices think and a reading of the transcripts of oral arguments.
Napolitano explained that decisions on major cases with tremendous public interest, such as ObamaCare and same-sex marriage, always seem to come at the end of a session.
He said that the rulings should come Thursday or the following Monday. After that, the justices will not reconvene until the first Monday in October.
