Presenting the King v. Burwell Countdown Clock!


Time: D H M S

Yes, if you look at the top of the page, you'll see the seconds ticking away until the Supreme Court finally announces whether 6.5 million lower- to middle-class Americans get hammered with a $3,200 (average) annual tax hike apiece thanks to a joint effort by the Cato Institute and the Republican Party.

As of this writing, the countdown clock reads 24 Days, 18 Hours, 14 Minutes and 27 Seconds. 21 Days, 0 Hours, 48 Minutes, 21 Seconds. However, the Court's decision could be announced as soon as 4 days from now! 1 Hour from now! Commenter "secretadvocate" noted that according to the Supreme Court's calendar, they plan on making their Major Decision announcements on each Monday of June. Since they took a pass on King a few days ago, that leaves 4 possible dates for the Big Announcement:

  • Monday, June 8th
  • Monday, June 15th
  • Monday, June 22nd
  • Monday, June 29th

Most watchers seem to the pretty sure that they'll hold off on King v. Burwell until the last day (6/29), but you never know; they could surprise everyone and either drop or defuse the bomb this coming Monday the 8th.

Hang tight, everyone...
