OT-Obama "warns" the Supreme Court...

Good call, telling the court they should make an "unprecedented" move of overturning the Health care law.

Unprecedented!?! The Supreme court overturns a law on average of every 16 months.

Why give a "senior" discount, they have had plenty of time to raise the money...

Ignoring their own precedents should be embarrassing enough .

So much for conservatives disliking " activist " judges .

It would be a relatively unprecedented restriction on the scope of the Commerce Clause and inmvoking that clause to make legislation affecting the Sates.

Pretty funny , growing marijuana for self-use in CA invokes the Commerce Clause according to the activists like Thomas & Scalia but something ( health care )that is 18% of the US economy might not .

Maybe they'll remember that the mandate was originally a CONSERVATIVE idea .

Ruth Bader made the comment (paraphrased) that people need to be forced to participate in the market.

My thought when I read that was...where does it end?

How bout when we join the rest of the civilized world and enact some form of " single payer " ?

Wanna continue the current employement based , free market health insurance system we have ? Then you need to MANDATE everyone have insurance to discourage " free riders " who only buy in once they're sick and need insurance .

---> Does that mean that everyone who doesn't have auto insurance is a 'free rider'? How about folks who don't homeowner's/renter's insurance? Or dental insurance? Vision insurance? Pet insurance? Cell Phone insurance and so on an so forth? Are they all 'free riders' too?

---> Do you honestly think that the cost of health insurance is going to go down because it's mandated? If so, you are seriously deluding yourself. One of the supposed benefits of mandating auto insurance was that it was supposed to lower the cost of auto insurance because a 'loss' would be spread out among the many instead of the few. Instead, rates went UP across the board because 1) insurance companies KNEW that you couldn't [legally] drive your vehicle without insurance and if you got caught, they could double the rates and 2) more insured means more payouts. And it is exactly what will happen if medical insurance is mandated.

---> It wasn't the 'free riders' as you call them, that caused the high cost of medical insurance...it's our 'sue happy' society. And medical costs have become outrageous, NOT because of the folks who pay their medical bills last, but because 1) hospitals discovered they could get away with charge $10.00 for an aspirin and $20.00 for a band-aid and 2) because of our 'sue happy' society raising the rates of malpractice insurance.

>>>>>>>> Who said it was ?

I have an idea Mr " Bytch About Deficits & Government Spending " , let's KEEP the exact same antiquated system , that NO OTHER INDUSTRIALIZED NATION has , that results in HUGE NUMBERS of people WITHOUT HEALTH INSURANCE and COSTS MORE than ANY OTHER system cuz you have your panties in a bunch .

Does that mean that everyone who doesn't have auto insurance is a 'free rider'?

>>>>>>>> Anyone who DRIVES , YES . That's why car insurance is MANDATED at the state level . Then again car accidents aren't 18% of GDP .

How about folks who don't homeowner's/renter's insurance? Or dental insurance? Vision insurance? Pet insurance? Cell Phone insurance and so on an so forth? Are they all 'free riders' too?

>>>>>>>>> see above .

Do you honestly think that the cost of health insurance is going to go down because it's mandated?

>>>>>>>>> Has it gone down when it WASN'T ?

That's right , it isn't NOW . NOT YET .


If so, you are seriously deluding yourself. One of the supposed benefits of mandating auto insurance was that it was supposed to lower the cost of auto insurance because a 'loss' would be spread out among the many instead of the few. Instead, rates went UP across the board because 1) insurance companies KNEW that you couldn't [legally] drive your vehicle without insurance and if you got caught, they could double the rates and 2) more insured means more payouts.

>>>>>>>> Maybe you can show some PROOF auto insurance rates are raising at 2-3 TIMES the cost of inflation like health insurance .

It wasn't the 'free riders' as you call them, that caused the high cost of medical insurance...it's our 'sue happy' society. And medical costs have become outrageous, NOT because of the folks who pay their medical bills last, but because 1) hospitals discovered they could get away with charge $10.00 for an aspirin and $20.00 for a band-aid and 2) because of our 'sue happy' society raising the rates of malpractice insurance.

>>>>>>>>> A fantasy .
