And now the fun begins with Obamacare
Chief Justice Roberts's opinion on the "subsidies" was hard to understand. However, the Court's decision will keep Obamacare alive for now, and that's good news for those of us who want to kill this terrible law.
According to Robert E. Moffit, it will be very interesting:
Roughly 6.4 million persons in thirty-four states could have been negatively affected if the Court struck down the federal exchange subsidies.
But there is a much wider universe of persons adversely affected by the law: the roughly 15 million persons in the individual and small group market who don’t get -- and won’t get -- the federal government’s health-insurance subsidies.
Under Obamacare, millions of Americans are forced to pay more for their government standardized coverage, regardless of whether they like it or not, whether they want it or not, or whether or not it forces them to pay for medical procedures that violate their ethical, moral or religious convictions.
A couple of days ago, I spoke with a family member who was complaining about a new premium, almost $1,500 a month for a couple whose kids are no longer living at home and working.
At church, another person told me another nightmare story about premiums.
The Obama team claims that the ACA debate is over, specially after the most recent victory in the Supreme Court.
In fact, the real debate is just beginning as the chickens come home to roost. We are going to get a taste of just how bad this law is.
If Hillary Clinton is the nominee, she will call for major changes, including the elimination of mandates.
If Bernie Sanders is the nominee, he will say that we should have gone for a single-payer plan instead.
If the GOP wins, I hope that they repeal it!
