Since we are on the cusp of the SCOTUS possibly fucking over millions of people, I thought it would be worth it to bring this story to light.
David King...the 'King' in King vs. Burwell case the ACA case that SCOTUS is about to rule on...was interviewed in the NYT.
Long story short....the guy is in the asshole, "I've got mine, screw everyone else" crowd.
FREDERICKSBURG, Va. — Millions of people are waiting anxiously for the Supreme Court to decide the fate of President Obama’s health care law with a ruling this month on health insurance subsidies. But David M. King, a plaintiff in the case, is not among them.
Mr. King, 64, said recently that he was reasonably confident he would prevail in his challenge to the subsidies, a central element of the Affordable Care Act.
“We have a good chance of winning,” he said in an interview at his home here.
Mr. King and three other Virginia residents are challenging the payment of subsidies in states like Virginia that depend on the federal insurance marketplace.
They contend that the 2010 health care law allows subsidies only in states that establish their own marketplaces.
But Mr. King said that he was not really worried about the outcome of the case, King v. Burwell, because as a Vietnam veteran, he has access to medical care through the Department of Veterans Affairs.
