From the March 27 edition of Fox News' Outnumbered:

MARIE HARF (CO-HOST): The problem is, if the government now invalidates Obamacare through the courts, if they can't come up with something -- which they haven't been able to do for almost 10 years now, since Obamacare has passed -- people will be left with nothing. And that is a bigger problem than right now. 

KATIE PAVLICH (CO-HOST): It might not be, actually. Because right now, as the president said, your premium is $7,000 on average -- or your deductible. Your premiums are very expensive. But you have to spend seven grand before your insurance even kicks in. So it's almost like paying out of pocket. So people will be left with paying out of pocket like they are in a lot of cases now. But to your point about the Department of Justice not defending this in court, that is exactly the point. President Trump in every other situation has put Congress on notice by saying, "This is your job. We are not going to defend this anymore. You have an obligation to do this."
