Edwards seemed to side with the government in saying that Congress overall intent to deliver subsidies should prevail. Judge Griffith is likely to be deciding vote in the three-judge panel. The administration could appeal to the full panel of D.C. Circuit Court judges if it loses. If the plaintiffs prevail, the U.S. Supreme Court would likely hear the case next term to resolve conflicts between conflicting appeals court decisions. The political fallout would be enormous if the D.C. Circuit decides that the law actually means what it says. This would set up a new series of battles in the states much like those over Medicaid expansion. States could still set up an exchange so their citizens could get the subsidies since there is no deadline for a state to do so.

Pentagon Successfully Tests First Small-Caliber, Self-Guided Bullets [VIDEO] The Pentagons Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has announced the first successful live-fire tests of the militarys first smart, self-guided bullets. In a video released by DARPA Thursday , Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordinance (EXACTO) .50-caliber bullets maneuvered independently mid-flight to accurately strike targets purposefully offset from where the firing sniper rifle was aimed. WATCH: Wired reported in 2012 the first successful prototype test of the militarys first-ever guided small-caliber bullets, developed by Sandia National Laboratories and Lockheed Martin. Around 4-inches long, the bullets feature optical tips to detect laser beams shown on targets. Actuators inside the bullets then steer tiny fins on their surfaces, which guide them to targets based on information from the tip sensors. The bullets can strike a target accurately while accommodating for weather, wind, target movement and other factors, according to DARPA. The prototype tests were able to successfully strike targets from more-than a mile, or 6,500 feet away. For military snipers, acquiring moving targets in unfavorable conditions, such as high winds and dusty terrain commonly found in Afghanistan, is extremely challenging with current technology, the agency explains on its website .
