President Barack Obama may try to skirt Tuesday's court ruling that Affordable Care Act subsidies are illegal by tweaking the law as he has done in the past, says healthcare policy expert Sally Pipes, president of the Pacific Research Institute.

"He may well try to do that because he's done it in so many cases,'' Pipes said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"[They include] delaying the employer mandate, delaying the individual mandate, saying that people didn’t' have to prove that they were eligible for these subsidies by providing tax information.

"The president has probably made 31 changes to the law by his own executive order and it'll be interesting to see.''

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled that tax credits and subsidies cannot be used to buy health insurance through the federal exchange, healthcare.gov.

"This is a very important ruling … About 5 million people to receive subsidies from the federal government to purchase health insurance in these Healthcare.gov exchanges,'' Pipes said.
