More on Obamacare at the Supreme Court

Advocates urging the Supreme Court to allow the federal bureaucracy to expand health insurance subsidies beyond those authorized by the Obamacare law are desperately resorting to  scare tactics -- citing the supposedly horrific financial impact of not doing what they want.

Irrespective of the validity of their dubious claims that a decision against them would have devastating economic effects,  such an argument is an improper one.  If the law, as enacted by Congress, is flawed, the job of fixing it is one for the Congress.  Fixing faulty legislation is not a judicial function.  Courts exist to uphold laws, not to make or repair them.
