Following the surreal decision of the Supreme Court regarding ObamaCare subsidies, Texas Representative Brian Babin (R) wants to ensure that the justices take full advantage of the law they just contorted in order to save it.  Picking up Justice Scalia’s comment that the decision effectively turns ObamaCare into SCOTUScare, Babin has introduced a bill that requires Supreme Court justices to sign up for ObamaCare.

Watch:

From Babin’s website:

U.S. Representative Brian Babin (TX-36) issued the following statement today after introducing the SCOTUScare Act (H.R. 2905), which finally eliminates their exemption and requires all U.S. Supreme Court Justices and their employees to sign up for Obamacare:

“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.  That’s why I introduced the SCOTUScare Act to require the Supreme Court and all of its employees to sign up for Obamacare.  By eliminating their exemption from Obamacare, they will see firsthand what the American people are forced to live with!”

You can read the full text of the SCOTUScare Act via Babin’s site.

It’s bad enough that the nation’s law makers have made themselves and their staff exempt from ObamaCare.  Congress would make much better law—possibly even read bills before voting on them—if the laws actually applied to them.

Perhaps SCOTUS would make better rulings if they, too, had to live with the results.

The Hill reports:

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.
