Scalia Dissent

Scalia Dissent

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia drew upon his rigorous Jesuit education in rendering his closely-reasoned dissenting opinion in King vs Burwell. His considered judgement:

“interpretive jiggery-pokery

somersaults of statutory interpretation”

Pure applesauce.

Scalia, always le mot juste.
