America's Largest Health Care Company Tells Supreme Court That Anti-Obamacare Argument Is "Absurd"

f getting rid of Obamacare is such a good idea, why isn't corporate America getting behind King v. Burwell, the Supreme Court case designed to demolish the Affordable Care Act? More than 52 different parties have weighed in with briefs in advance of oral arguments on March 4. Of those, 21 have been filed on behalf of the plaintiffs, who claim millions of Obamacare consumers are receiving illegal health insurance subsidies. The groups filing these briefs include libertarian think tanks, pro-life organizations, Christian legal shops, and some conservative Republican legislators. But not a single business group -- not the US Chamber of Commerce, not any of the health industry companies and trade groups that opposed the law when it was being drafted -- has presented a brief endorsing this lawsuit. read more

Forty years after first taking the oath as governor of California, Democrat Jerry Brown was sworn in to an historic fourth term Monday, proposing sweeping changes to address global climate change while offering a measured approach to targeting the state's long-term financial liabilities. Brown has in the past used the speeches to make promises. In his third inauguration address in 2011, at age 72, he pledged not to raise taxes without a vote of the people, and to "speak the truth" about the state's financial condition, which at the time was a $27 billion deficit. Four years later, California is anticipating multi-billion dollar surpluses after voters approved Brown's sales and income tax increases. "While we have not reached the Promised Land, we have much to be proud of," he said.

But, the anti-Christian bigots will read into this in the worst possible way. It's what they do.

You mean like our Founding Fathers...Thomas Jefferson or George Washington?

"If I could conceive that the general government might ever be so administered as to render the liberty of conscience insecure, I beg you will be persuaded, that no one would be more zealous than myself to establish effectual barriers against the horrors of spiritual tyranny, and every species of religious persecution."
~Founding Father George Washington

"Of all the animosities which have existed among mankind, those which are caused by a difference of sentiments in religion appear to be the most inveterate and distressing, and ought to be deprecated. I was in hopes that the enlightened and liberal policy, which has marked the present age, would at least have reconciled Christians of every denomination so far that we should never again see the religious disputes carried to such a pitch as to endanger the peace of society."
~Founding Father George Washington

"Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, then that of blindfolded fear."
~Founding Father Thomas Jefferson

"Because religious belief, or non-belief, is such an important part of every person's life, freedom of religion affects every individual.

State churches that use government power to support themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths undermine all our civil rights. Moreover, state support of the church tends to make the clergy unresponsive to the people and leads to corruption within religion. Erecting the "wall of separation between church and state," therefore, is absolutely essential in a free society. We have solved … the great and interesting question whether freedom of religion is compatible with order in government and obedience to the laws. And we have experienced the quiet as well as the comfort which results from leaving every one to profess freely and openly those principles of religion which are the inductions of his own reason and the serious convictions of his own inquiries."
~Founding Father Thomas Jefferson
