    How Republicans Should Wrestle With Obamacare After The Supreme Court Ruling

    Now that the Supreme Court has ruled for the Obama administration in the case of King vs. Burwell, perhaps Washington can finally turn to fixing the law’s acknowledged deficiencies.

The plaintiffs—four individuals who don't want to be forced to buy ObamaCare—argue that under the explicit terms of the ACA, subsidies enabling that purchase can only be distributed in exchanges "established by the State."
