Let SCOTUS Enroll in Obamacare!

The Supreme Court, which has now twice saddled us with the unconstitutional law, should be made to enroll in Obamacare.

This is one of the best ideas I have seen in awhile. The Hill reports, “House bill would force the Supreme Court to enroll in ObamaCare.”

A House Republican on Thursday proposed forcing the Supreme Court justices and their staff to enroll in ObamaCare.

Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) said that his SCOTUScare Act would make all nine justices and their employees join the national healthcare law’s exchanges.

“As the Supreme Court continues to ignore the letter of the law, it’s important that these six individuals understand the full impact of their decisions on the American people,” he said.

“That’s why I introduced the SCOTUScare Act to require the Supreme Court and all of its employees to sign up for ObamaCare,” Babin said.

Babin’s potential legislation would only let the federal government provide healthcare to the Supreme Court and its staff via ObamaCare exchanges.

“By eliminating their exemption from ObamaCare, they will see firsthand what the American people are forced to live with,” he added.

His move follows the Supreme Court’s ruling Thursday morning that upheld the subsidies under ObamaCare that are provided by the government to offset the cost of buying insurance.

As fun as this is to contemplate, I’m afraid that the effect of forcing the Supreme Court to enroll in Obamacare wouldn’t be as satisfying as you might think. Obamacare consists of giant insurers who know they must maintain the good will of the government. In no way would a Supreme Court Justice get the same treatment from these insurance companies as a regular man or woman who is participating in their programs. Doctors and specialists would be available. All their requests would be granted without the usual wait times. All the various things that could go wrong with insurance coverage would never go wrong for them. They would have dedicated staff making sure that everything ran smoothly for them.

Then we would have to hear the insufferable statements from these black-robed scum telling us how great Obamacare is. It would be a horrible experience. Let them keep their gold-plated healthcare now so that we all know what elitists they are.
