Halbig v. Burwell

Jonathan Turley wrote in the Los Angeles Times this week that an imminent Obamacare lawsuit, is a "far more fundamental challenge to Obamacare" than Hobby Lobby. Halbig vs. Burwell challenges IRS implementation of the law's penalties and subsidies as applied to states that did not set up Obamacare exchanges. A decision is expected very soon by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. "If Hobby Lobby will create complications for Obamacare, Halbig vs. Burwell could trigger a full cardiac arrest," Turley predicted.

Michael A. Carvin of Jones Day is lead counsel in the case. The Competitive Enterprise Institute is assisting in the lawsuit’s coordination and funding.
