The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of the Obama administration in the King v. Burwell case, which challenged the legality of federal subsidies for Obamacare.

Among the six SCOTUS justices voting in favor of the Obama administration was John Roberts, whose opinion shows that he ruled on the intent of those who wrote the law rather than what was written:

If “intent” is all that matters, why kill trees for all the paper on which to write laws down if they can just be “interpreted” differently later on?

Justice Scalia perfectly summed up the implications of Roberts’ reasoning behind his decision.
