Rep. Ryan and Secretary Burwell on HHS Reaction to King v. Burwell

June 10th, 2015

The Hill reports on Secretary Slyvia Burwell’s colloquy with Rep. Paul Ryan. Ryan asked several times whether the President would veto anything other than a 1 page bill to restore the subsidies in full. Burwell refused to answer the question, and kept touting the benefits of the law.

Watch the video if you have a minute (or 7). I think you will see a preview of the debate to come if the Court rules against HHS.

If you’d like another preview of what administrative fix the pen-and-phone President has up his sleeve, see my white paper for the Federalist Society.
