A sure sign of the apocalypse . . .
And the DN comment boards go crazy in 3, 2, 1...
A win for middle America, and another blow to Tea Party politics. 6-3, leaving just the 3 conservative activist judges against it, just like the
immigration law.After 30 years of politicians claiming health care
reform was needed, President Obama got the ball rolling, even in the face of
extreme Republican opposition. A small step in the right direction.
Now time to let the bill actually go into affect, then continue building on it.
Yes!Now - to get rid of the middle man insurance companies and have
a single payer system.
Not a sure sign of the apocalypse, Twin Lights, but a sure sign that the
government no longer simply regulates our actions, it can dictate them. I
can't believe I'm the only person worried about a powerful body that
can dictate our actions.
A sad day for all American's!!It's too bad that so many are
blinded to the devastating effects that this will cause.
We have needed health care reform for 50 not 30 years, and now when we take a
step toward freedom from the control and manipulation of the hospital
conglomerates, pharmaceutical corporations and the insurance industry, why
should there be an apocalypse. Creating a system of healthcare where no one is
unable to be treated for illness. If we now transition to a wellness system
stressing preventive medicine utilizing all forms of medical treatments instead
of being held hostage to overmedication and unnecessary tests and a system where
a large portion of costs go to malpractice insurance.
And to think some people are cheering this. The employees are becoming our
bosses. Every thing is fair game to be taxed, and we're bigots, and
terrorists if we don't except it.
@worfYou may not like it but Obama and many members of congress ran on
healthcare reform and won, we voted them into office in part on their promise
to pass this law. We the employers made this decision. No it may turn out that
we the employers decide we are not happy with our decision and decide to vote
people into office to do away with this law but it is childish to claim we did
not make this decision.
"But the court said the mandate can be construed as a tax."The Supreme Court should not be construing things. The law as passed by
Congress labeled failure to buy insurance a 'penalty' not a tax. The
Supreme Court overstepped it's authority by removing the word
'penalty' and replacing it with the word 'tax.'
Tolstoy,"we voted them into office in part on their promise to
pass this law".We? I didn't vote these people in, and have
the American right to go against it. This is what happens when
people are educated, and entitled by government.Sorry guy, but most
people know little to nothing about the healthcare bill, other than pep rally
rhetoric from our commander in chief.
you may want to slow down and read my post a little more careful. first I agree
you have every right to disagree with the law but to claim it is something that
has been put upon us by the government is not true, they where voted into office
through our democratic process. You have every right to also go out and try to
convince enough people to vote these elected officials out of office and hire
people that will overturn the bill, but again stop acting like it is something
put upon the American people against their will by some tyrannical government.
