• Thanks, but…

    I guess I should be happy to be quoted in the Daily Beast:

    “The statute was very poorly drafted if the intent was to cover federal exchanges,” Kevin Outterson, a Boston University professor who focuses on health policy and who previously worked as a tax attorney, told Sarah Kliff. “If I had a client who had recently lost some money on a provision like this, I’d say you have a pretty good chance to win that case.”

    But I still think:

    • The IRS will win this case;
    • The anti-injunction act will delay the case until 2015 at the earliest; and
    • Standing will be a problem.

    See my prior posts on TIE to that effect, back in July.
