Judgment Day for Obamacare aka Affordable Care Act!

Around 10am Eastern we will know the fate of Obamacare (Affordable Care Act) as the Supreme Court of the United State aka SCOTUS will deliver their decision concerning the constitutionality of the mandate.

Of course everyone has an opinion on what the decision will be but as folks like Ezra Klein and Lawrence O’Donnell will tell you, know whats what the decision of SCOTUS will be.  Whatever the decision, this battle of Health Care will be far from being over.

  • Millions of Americans will still be without health care
  • Health Care costs continue to rise, albeit at a slower rate
  • Republicans have no plan to replace the Affordable Care Act

The ability to support Americans with pre-existing conditions along with trying to give health care to low-income families would die with the lost of the mandate.  If you don’t believe me you can look to Washington state as an example of how taking away the mandate will lead to failure.  Check out Ezra Klein‘s article on the mandate in Washington state.

All in all Thursday June 28th will be a long day for both Republicans and Democrats, and it doesn’t matter which side SCOTUS rules in favor of.

And of course the REAL loser in all of this… THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!

 

As always….

If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!

One thought on “Judgment Day for Obamacare aka Affordable Care Act!”

  1. Will striking down the individual mandate stop the development of ACOs (accountable care organizations), which are “accountable” to everyone except the patients? No.
