SCOTUS will uphold the Individual Mandate
SCOTUS will strike down the Individual Mandate
I honestly believe it is too close to call, literally 50/50 either way
The poor, uninsured, and unemployed are different from self employed and consultants making good money with no insurance.
Such hospitals don't exist to service the uninsured. They are set up to help the extremely poor... a sliding fee scale doesn't amount to anything if you're a business owner with a net income of 80,000, no insurance, and in need of open heart surgery.
Individual ruling for scotus

So basically this exchange has turned into a simple I am right and you are wrong.
Why do the majority of Europeans have little to no admiration for America? If what you're saying is true, then the discussion in Europe would be to move towards American policies, as opposed to criticizing everything American.

The mandate will be struck down. Then a newly re-elected Obama will use budget reconciliation to pass an automatic public option to replace the mandate. With that, anyone who doesn't opt out by buying private insurance will be automatically enrolled in the public option and pay taxes to support it. And the right will scream, demanding that that be overturned. However, it won't.
