Justice Scalia listed the “somersaults of statutory interpretation” the Supreme Court used to twice uphold Obamacare:
- “penalty” means tax,
- “further [Medicaid] payments to the State” means only incremental Medicaid payments to the State,
- “established by the State” means not established by the State.
In his dissenting opinion, Scalia explained how Justices redefined “established by the State” to mean the exact opposite of its obvious intention.
