Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Tuesday sent a strong message to the Supreme Court on the fate of ObamaCare, implying that the law should be upheld if the justices “can read English.”
“The language is very clear. The Supreme Court shouldn’t have taken up this case. They did,” Reid told reporters Tuesday.
Reid joins a chorus of Democrats who have blasted the court’s decision to take up King v. Burwell, a high-stakes case that questions a single clause in the Affordable Care Act. If the Obama administration loses, as many as 6.4 million people could lose healthcare subsidies because they have bought plans through the federal exchange, instead of one “established by the state.”
