what will the SCOTUS do?
my guess? it will strike down the individual "mandate". that mandate that carries no criminal or civil penalties.
the rest will remain.
i always reserve the right to be wrong.
come, be wrong with me. humbling yourself is fun.
btw, fuck off corey and trevor (corey and trevor = justanotherhead).

Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance.If we extend it even to those who are intolerant,if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant,then the tolerant will be destroyed,tolerance with them.
I will take the optimistic view that it stands 5-4. This vote will basically come down to politics. To get rid of it all would piss off a lot of people with pre-existing conditions, parents and their children who are under 26, those who cannot afford healthcare (well those who don't watch only fox). It also will mean we will have to revert back to the flawed system that we tried to fix.
To do away with the individual mandate would again make the whole PPACA worthless, since the mandate is meant to expand the pool of people covered by health insurance, making other parts of the law possible.
One thing that does strikes me as WTF. Repukes are ready to strike this law down, but have yet to offer anything that would help the healthcare problem...and also why is it that some of the people who this will help are the very ones complaining against it. Most will not even have to pay into it, because low-funded individuals will receive subsidies to help them afford insurance.
I voted other, no way to predict this, I agree with london for the most part. It all has to go or stay either way, doesn't make any sense for it to happen any other way but it makes sense the supreme court would do something that doesn't make sense so idk. Lame topic I have to agree it was probably a copy/paste from Bill Maher's blog or something. I guess I would probably prefer to see it go but it did do SOME good in giving more people medicaid I suppose, however medicaid is terrible, and the government fucking sucks and couldn't possibly ever do anything right or in our interest so I would like to see it go in this sense because in one way this was and is America again selling people out to corporate America and tyranny.
