|Give up this much freedom, to start!|
Death and Taxes have been two things you can count on happening. If the current President has his way, add health insurance. Have or get health insurance or else pay a fine, is about to become another certainty of the American way. Unless the Supreme Court steps in and brings back American freedom by saying, no.
President Barack Obama's health care plan/law has united most Americans, united against its requirement that everybody have insurance. The mandate is intensely unpopular even though many people in the United States are already are covered by workplace plans or government programs such as Medicare. When the insurance obligation kicks in some people won't need to worry or buy anything new. But "real," Americans don't like being told how to spend their money, not even if it is supposed to solve the problem of the uninsured. Critics dismissed the idea this way: "If things were that easy, I could mandate everybody to buy a house and that would solve the problem of homelessness." Barack Obama's words as a presidential candidate, he was against health insurance mandates.
"Federal judges have come down on both sides of the question, leaving it to the Supreme Court to sort out. The justices are allotting an unusually long period, six hours over three days, beginning March 26, to hear arguments challenging the law's constitutionality."
Their ruling will be a historic moment in the quest to keep freedom in the United States vs. the century-long quest by reformers to provide affordable health care for all.
Many critics and supporters alike see the insurance requirement of Obama's health care law as taking away freedom by requiring the purchase of insurance.
"Politically it was a wobbly construction from the start. It seems half of Washington has flip-flopped over mandating insurance."
It's now up to you, vote, put somebody in the White House that will fight for our freedom!
