Dems’ Plot To Block Barrett To Save Obamacare Will Do Exact Opposite


It comes as no surprise that Joe Biden has the facts precisely backward, telling reporters, “This nominee said she wants to get rid of the Affordable Care Act — this president wants to get rid of the Affordable Care Act. Let’s keep our eye on the ball. This is about less than one month, Americans are going to lose their health insurance.”

First of all, Amy Coney Barrett has said nothing of the kind. More importantly for Biden and his fellow Democrats is that if they are really intent on salvaging this law, their only chance of doing say is by confirming Barrett to the Supreme Court.

It all comes down to numbers. In the case of California v. Texas (known in the lower courts as Texas v. U.S.), the key is the longstanding legal principle of severability. This  refers to a provision in a contract or piece of legislation that states that if some of the terms are held to be illegal or otherwise unenforceable, the remainder should still apply. In the case of Obamacare, a lower court has already ruled that the individual mandate, which was struck down last December, is not severable from the law as a whole. Oral arguments are set to be heard by the Supreme Court on Nov. 10. If Barrett is not confirmed, and the opinion among the eight justices on is split 4-4 , the lower court ruling stands. Obamacare will become history.
