    yeesh; can you imagine the growth that would take off?


    but i was actually talking about healthcare spending being tax free for businesses, but not for individuals. it's an FDR thing that is still screwing the American worker (like many of his inventions) in particular and the economy in general.

    Health insurance isn't interstate commerce? Do tell. This decision is a monument to conservative activist judges on the federal bench.

    I don't want to get my hopes up, but the republicans are talking of tackling tax reform real soon.

    There'll be a whole bunch of insurers dropping individual coverage. There's absolutely no way around it.

    Re: Health Care Reform Provision Is Unconstitutional, Federal Judge Rules

    Before people get too excited about this, some information from the linked article:

    Hudson is the first federal judge to strike down a key part of the law, which had been upheld by fellow federal judges in Virginia and Michigan. Several other lawsuits have been dismissed and still others are pending, including one filed in Florida by 20 states.
    One judge out of several that have looked at this agrees it is unconstitutional. That does not bode well for the continued challenge.
