Is it really ever a good day to be Nancy Pelosi? We’re not sure. But we can safely say that today is a very bad one:

This has gotta hurt:

Dealing a major blow to President Obama, a federal appeals court on Tuesday ruled that subsidies to purchase insurance were illegally granted in 36 states in which the federal government runs the exchanges.

At issue in the case, Halbig v. Burwell, are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text of the law says the subsidies were to go to individuals obtaining insurance through an “exchange established by the state,” a rule released by the Internal Revenue Service subsequently instructed that subsidies would also apply to exchanges set up on behalf of states by the federal government.

But the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit concluded that Obamacare “unambiguously restricts the … subsidy to insurance purchased on Exchanges ‘established by the State.’ ”

So, basically, Obamacare has suffered another setback, this time thanks to just a handful of words in the written legislation. Darn it, Nancy. If only you’d read the bill before you passed it to find out what was in it!
