Today the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case of King v. Burwell, which might invalidate the subsidies given to Obamacare policies through federal exchanges as opposed to those run by the states. Is the government's position "gobbledygook" as Justice Antonin Scalia remarked?

Reason Senior Editor Damon Root sat down with Reason TV's Nick Gillespie to give his account of the case, what he heard during today's argument, and his thoughts on which way the justices are leaning.
