We just couldn't escape the King v. Burwell orbit today. So, we once again dive into the weeds of the case, starting with an attempt to give some sensible form to the plaintiffs' case, though it just doesn't hold together all that well, and Armando couldn't sit still for it, which was a fine excuse for sharing his six things to watch for during oral arguments. We also added insights and live updates from SCOTUSBlog and the WSJ, plus some throwback commentary on Obamacare's path to passage and what it might mean for divining "legislative intent." We also paused along the way to note the lawlessness of the Alabama Supreme "Court," the Netanyahu speech, and a hint at a good(-ish) reason why Hillary Clinton might have opted for private e-mail.
