Resounding Victory for Obama Administration in ACA Premium Subsidy Litigation

"Friedman closes by referring to the purpose of the ACA to provide for near-universal coverage. The challengers' interpretation, he says, 'runs counter to this central purpose.' Accepting it 'would violate the basic rule of statutory construction that a court must interpret a statute in light of its history and purpose.' At any rate, even if the statute were ambiguous -- and Friedman is crystal clear that he doesn't think it is -- the administration's interpretation, he says, would be upheld as a 'permissible construction of the statute.'" [Halbig v. Sebelius, No. 13-062 (D.D.C. Jan. 15, 2014)]
