CHRISTOPHER34 saidThis is where States Rights come into play. Today the Ohio Voters have gone to the polls to vote on Issue 3. If passed (which its predicted to do) it will block the Romney/Obamacare mandate. The people dont want it and the country cannot afford it.
The law doesn't go completely in effect until 2014, and by then it is likely the Supreme Court would have heard the case. And if upheld by the Supreme Court, then it was a wasted effort as federal statutes trump state law.
Exactly. What this panel has said is that certain problems are of such a major scope that they only solutions are federal ones. Given the rising costs of healthcare and an aging population, which combined will suck up more and more of our national wealth, a national strategy is necessary.
As much as it pains me to say this, I agree with Christian. Healthcare is an issue, moreso individual health insurance is such a shit show that something had to be done. I look forward to seeing where this bill takes us and the effect it has on healthcare.
Thanks, Chainers. (Now back to our vicious sniping at each other. 1, 2, 3...)
Eh, it tends to go back and forth for me. I am middle of the road for politics so their are times I am against you, catfish and the like and others I am against SB, CuriousJock, SoCalFitness, etc.
More importantly, I am just on the political thread to stir shit, so shit stirring happens when Im logged on...lol.
