Obama, GOP fret that SCOTUS questioning Obamacare again

Obama was in full authoritarian mode for his G7 colleagues on Monday, not only accommodating the Islamic State with his 'no complete strategy' statement, but also delving into domestic matters (of course with his international buddies) to show his displeasure with the court's checks on his first term sacred cow...
President Obama argued Monday that the Supreme Court case on the legality of Obamacare subsidies is a no-brainer, and said it's a case the high court probably shouldn't have been bothered with.
Yes, that'd be the same court of which its Chief Justice unconstitutionally rewrote the law on the fly to accommodate the further federal takeover of our healthcare, and thus monopolize one-sixth of America's economy.

However, as Levin pointed out, Obama had the opportunity to change the language in the bill when Democrats held a supermajority in Congress (of course, they didn't read it, so...). Now he wants the Supreme Court to rewrite the bill again to include federal exchanges so he can get his way once again. You see the dangers of amorphous legislation, particularly under an imperial president? But he's not the only one fretting. Enter the quislings...
On Tuesday's Mark Levin Show: Republicans in Congress are worried that the Supreme Court might uphold the Constitution and rule against Obamacare. Mitch McConnell and John Boehner don't know what to do if the Supreme Court does the right thing, because GOP Congressmen in swing states want to extend Obamacare subsidies in order to keep voters happy. Is it only the conservative base that believes in the Constitution now?
Apparently, and quite unfortunately, so. 

Equally unfortunate are the clutches of redistribution throughout the populace and the unprincipled cronyism that drives...
TheHillRepublicans in Congress are worried the Supreme Court will hand them a major headache this month if it rules against the federal health insurance exchanges in more than 30 states, ending subsidies for millions of people.

While the Affordable Care Act remains broadly unpopular, two new polls show a majority of Americans don’t want to do away with its subsidies, a core component of the law.

This poses a conundrum for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). They are under pressure from colleagues up for reelection in swing states and districts to extend the subsidies, at least temporarily, if the court strikes them down. But doing so would risk a backlash from the conservative base.
Oh, how the Welfare State manipulates and shackles. Another case of liberty lost for temporary security.
