Re "Courts issue conflicting rulings on health care tax subsidies" (Page A6, July 23): When two panels of judges look at the same law and come to opposite conclusions, there is something wrong with the law or something wrong with the judges. In this case, while it seems clear there is something wrong with the law, there is much more wrong with the judges.

"No federal subsidies to Obamacare participants in states that have no state exchanges" is pretty clear. If that's not what Democrats intended when they wrote the law, then it's up to Congress, not the courts or president, to fix it. Otherwise the laws passed by Congress have no meaning.
