Jun 28 - Supreme Court upholds Obama health care law

The Supreme Court upheld the health care law today in a splintered, complex opinion that gives President Obama a major victory.

Basically. the justices said that the individual mandate -- the requirement that most Americans buy health insurance or pay a fine -- is constitutional as a tax.

Chief Justice John Roberts -- a conservative appointed by President George W. Bush -- provided the key vote to preserve the landmark health care law, which figures to be a major issue in Obama's re-election bid against Republican opponent Mitt Romney.

The government had argued that Congress had the authority to pass the individual mandate as part of its power to regulate interstate commerce; the court disagreed with that analysis, but preserved the mandate because the fine amounts to a tax that is within Congress' constitutional powers.

The announcement will have a major impact on the nation's health care system, the actions of both federal and state governments, and the course of the November presidential and congressional elections.

A key question for the high court: The law's individual mandate, the requirement that nearly all Americans buy health insurance, or pay a penalty.

Critics call the requirement an unconstitutional overreach by Congress and the Obama administration; supporters say it is necessary to finance the health care plan, and well within the government's powers under the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution.

While the individual mandate remained 18 months away from implementation, many other provisions already have gone into effect, such as free wellness exams for seniors and allowing children up to age 26 to remain on their parents' health insurance policies. Some of those provisions are likely to be retained by some insurance companies.

Other impacts will sort themselves out, once the court rules:

-- Health care millions of Americans will be affected – coverage for some, premiums for others. Doctors, hospitals, drug makers, insurers, and employers large and small all will feel the impact.

-- States -- some of which have moved ahead with the health care overhaul while others have held back -- now have decisions to make. A deeply divided Congress could decide to re-enter the debate with legislation.

-- The presidential race between Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney is sure to feel the repercussions. Obama's health care law has proven to be slightly more unpopular than popular among Americans.

Not since the court confirmed George W. Bush's election in December 2000 -- before 9/11, Afghanistan and Iraq, Wall Street's dive and Obama's rise -- has one case carried such sweeping implications for nearly every American.

Passed by Democrats along strictly partisan lines and still 18 months short of full implementation, the law is designed to extend health coverage to some 32 million uninsured people, ban insurers from discriminating against those with expensive ailments, and require nearly all Americans to buy insurance or pay penalties.

Its passage on March 23, 2010, marked the culmination of an effort by Democrats to overhaul the nation's health care system that dates back to Harry Truman's presidency. The most recent effort by President Bill Clinton in 1994 fell victim to Republican opposition. Since then, lesser changes have been enacted, including creation of a separate Children's Health Insurance Program in the states.

GTFOH. There's nothing to prove wrong. I never said anything about health care being free or anything relative to his response.

all you stans who think this is a good thing have obviously never lost a job.

If you get laid off, how the fu*k you supposed to afford health coverage? They offered cobra and that sh*t is $300/mo for a single healthy 25yr old male.

GTFOH.


More ways to screw the American people out of more money. Not even talking about how well gov't runs organizations. Medicare, Medicaid, Welfare, blah blah blah.

Gotta love that change.

This is bullsh*t. Anyway for the government to tax the people. What's affordable to them? N what's affordable to one is not affordable to someone else. I also don't like the fact that if I don't purchase insurance I will be fined. How can anybody think that is fine? And if I can't afford insurance how they think ima afford their bullsh*t fine. This is a terrible day for Americans.

its the same philosophy with auto insurance....pay us or we take your sh*t...but I'd be more inclined to have health insurance than auto insurance

Others may disagree

if it wasn't for this law you would be charged full price for everything...even a checkup would be expensive

it's lesser of two evils by far
What u gotten understand half these people don't understand how health care insurance works they never been to a doctor. They don't understand how much medical cost and how insurance companies will drop yo a.ss are not cover certain visits. If half the people in the united states went to the the doctor yearly on their birthday and did a annual full physical with all the blood work and everything we would catch diseases or illness before they come to the point where it's unsure able and cost you thousands of dollars in medical bills. A simple get off your a.ss and get a check up would do wonders.
