California official: Supreme Court risks ‘horrible moral precedent’ on Obamacare
Los Angeles Times

The head of California’s Obamacare exchange says the U.S. Supreme Court risks setting a “horrible moral precedent” if it strikes down health-law subsidies across much of the country. Peter Lee, executive director of Covered California and a former Obama administration official, said a court ruling against the Affordable Care Act “signals that subsidies don’t matter.” “I think it would set a horrible moral precedent if the Supreme Court was to find that we can leave Americans without that financial leg up,” Lee said in an interview.
