    A Question for My Liberal Friends

    If the mandate (or the entire bill even) is overturned today, how long are you going to whine about it being a politicized, partisan decision by the SCOTUS? When will you get over the outrage long enough to start having a serious conversation in Congress about REAL health care and cost reform?

    There's no reason to not have that conversation no matter what the outcome was.

    I know keeping up really isn't your thing.

    No, it applies to you even moreso.

    Obamacare is still a costly fustercluck bureaucratic nightmare that benefits:

    Big Pharma
    Healthcare Insurance Companies

    It's health insurance. It is not health care.

    The USSC did not invalidate the 1400 exemptions that Obama incompetently gave or any of the other many structural (financial) problems of this Godzilla-like government disaster which makes the whole thing unworkable.

    Liberals think they have the Single-Payer or something akin to Single-Payer. Obamacare is not even close to Single-Payer.

    It's just a...fustercluck!

    Hopefully everyone will wake up and will try to improve it.

    LOL

    Just remember, the leading argument in support of the bill was "Let's just pass it first and then read it"

    Link to any complaints of the Supreme Court making this a political decision... you know, like the point of the thread.

    Our healthcare has been F'd up for a very longtime. Any action is better than the status quo.

    No doubt that's true but if we end up having a massive tax increase and we don't substantially bend the curve on health care spending as a result of this new policy, I'm afraid that wouldn't be true.

    If health care costs continue to spiral out of control and we are just adding more people into that system, this bill while covering more people is going to create enormous drag on the entire economy leading to millions of underemployed and unemployed people over a very long period of time.

    If the cost of health care can be reduced substantially this will be far better than the status quo.
