    Appeals court rules against Obama healthcare law

    Link

    WASHINGTON | Fri Aug 12, 2011 1:24pm EDT
    The Appeals Court for the 11th Circuit, based in Atlanta, found that Congress exceeded its authority by requiring Americans to buy coverage, but also ruled that the rest of the wide-ranging law could remain in effect.

    The legality of the so-called individual mandate, a cornerstone of the healthcare law, is widely expected to be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. The Obama administration has defended the provision as constitutional.

    Obviously this is a court stacked by the Kock Brothers and "Big Pharma" who don't care about the poor, the elderly or "the children" and of course, don't realize the superior system of UHC.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    The gov could have avoided all this follow-up drama if they had just avoided 'requiring' anything - and just made it an option for those who qualified like all other government programs are run.

    First, big pharma WROTE Obama care.
    Second, there's not enough money to pay for UHC.
    Third, as this court has deemed, Obamacare is unconstitutional, so, without changing the constitution the US canno have UHC because the founders preferred that people be individually responsible, and independent of as much government controls as possible.

    Obamacare is not a good representation of UHC.

    Also, the decision of this court would not negatively affect the majority of those you are talking about, since this decision does not affect the eligibility of those groups to get either Medicaid or Medicare. In fact, the decision of the court could possibly help a few of those that would be sitting right on the edge of availability, make just a little too much to qualify for Medicaid but not really enough to afford healthcare for everyone in the family. Either they could continue to live without healthcare or at least have the money on monthly payments or from the tax penalty to afford as-needed healthcare or it will force the government to actually come up with a true NHC system, that isn't a national healthcare insurance system.

    U.S. Appeals Court Rules Against Obama's Health Care Law

    On Friday, the divided three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals sided with 26 states that filed a lawsuit to block Obama's signature domestic initiative.The panel said that Congress exceeded its constitutional authority by requiring Americans to buy insurance or face penalties.

    Supreme court bound no doubt. The lower court rulings of "unconstitutional" are adding up.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I've always favored the idea of liberals just going their own way and creating their own voluntary universal health care system. They could invite anyone who wanted to join and then they could price it so that it was self-sustaining. Putting one's money where one's mouth is blazing a trail is a pretty good way of going about things.
