So are you saying that Obama appointed judges will rule based on partisanship and not the plain letter of the law?
ETA: Obamacare only mentioning that only state exchanges are eligible for subsidies is just a drafting error, right?...

I think the argument would be that Reading Rainbow only received so much on Kickstarter because of the nostalgia that current young adults have for the show. Without PBS funding the show originally it would not be in position to capitalize on that nostalgia today.
