The court is not there to play politics.
What about they guy who cannot afford health care and Obama penalizes (taxes) him for it? I guess he is a loser. Plus he will be poorer.
Different topic. This one is about the Supreme Court interpreting law and not playing politics.
Obama doesn't care.
If he cannot afford healthcare under this law he cannot afford it now.
Why are you not concerned about people who will be covered who cannot afford healthcare now?
I have been one of those people more than once in my like. But I do not look to the rest of the country to make sure I can. The principle of the founding of this country is more important.
But it is obvious that you live in fear and do not trust God for your provision. so instead you trust the government over God.
Have you ever seen anyone turned away at a hospital ER?
What about the poor person who goes to the emergency room with a heart condition? Do you think the hospital will give them the medicine or treatment they need if they are not having a heart attack at the moment they are there?
And did you know the average person paying for healthcare pays over a thousand a year because of uninsured people being taken care of?
They cannot be turned away under current law, it was called the Hill-Burton Act, don't know what it is called now. If the hospital accepts federal funds, i.e., Medicare, Medicaid, etc., they cannot turn a person away for emergency care. That is why over 80 hospitals in California went belly up and out of business, because they were required by law to treat patients without insurance and most were illegal aliens without insurance. The Hill-Burton Act has existed for years. I know, I used to work in an ER in the 1970s.
Oh, here it is on Wikipedia:
This whole obamacare thing has been blowing smoke about people going to the ER for care and that poor people can't get care. It is a lie.
The same people will continue to go to the ER for care only now there will be MORE people going to the ER for care because of the coming shortage of doctors and long waits.
BACK ON TOPIC: It is my opinion that the SCOTUS played politics. Liberals can jump for joy today. But Justice Roberts may have just handed Mitt Romney the gift that keeps on giving. :thumbs:
The problem would be solved if every person had to carry an insurance ID in order to be picked up by an ambulance. No ID, die in the ditch unless a good samaritan volunteers to pick up the bill.
Your solution is to pay more than double that thousand dollars to the government each year?
thats right - as one commentator said - popularly elected officials have the right to pass stupid laws- constitutional - but still stupid
They sold us out to Wall Street and the International corporations.
The tax is very minimum. Much less then insurance.
I think the writer is reading what happened incorrectly.
But why should I have to pay either one?
Because the American people have sold their constitutional liberties to a Marxist and all the socialists before him for their greed to have free handouts.
