If Health Law Is Overturned, What Will Liberals Do?

There are 4941 comments on the thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com story from Mar 28, 2012, titled If Health Law Is Overturned, What Will Liberals Do?. In it, thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com reports that:

If the Supreme Court strikes down all or part of President Obama 's health care law , it will have unraveled a legislative compromise that many liberals had viewed with suspicion from the beginning.

In one of the ironies of recent politics, Mr. Obama was a late convert to the merits of the individual mandate that now appears to be in danger of being declared unconstitutional.

But the president’s embrace of the mandate — and his willingness to abandon a so-called public option to get a health care deal — was a hard pill to swallow for many of his Democratic supporters.

The Affordable Care Act promises to provide health insurance to millions who lacked it. But it also stops far short of the idea that health care is a basic right for everyone living in the country. And it embraces the market-based system of private health care delivery that has long existed in America.

It's one thing to set up a business that only makes a profit by by-passing the government rules and another thing altogether a business model who factors in all the gov rules & reg to still profit.
Doing what it takes to survive is fine even the biggest companies go through that from Apple who may make a phone no one wants to the local picture frame guy. But never use the excuse its because of the health insurance or taxes or some other fee that sends them broke. That is BS, the G8 meeting that never agree on anything, agreed on closing all the tax havens that has become a national pastime for leading companies around the world including major US companies. That is business behaving at its worst.
Do really believe that the companies that left US soil are paying the same cost of production where they escaped too . same as those who stayed are paying? Maytag went broke. Mattell the toymaker went broke. Westing house went broke. bethelem steel and Us steel went broke. The car companies are a shell of what they once where. International harvester went broke. And the health care has cost jobs. If you cant pass any increase in cost of production on to your customers you will fail. for example the simple fact is if a company relocates from the us to mexico and moves its corporate headquarters to mexico, that company is no longer a us company and doesnt owe any taxes or have any moral obligation to the usa. they shure as heck domt have to pay for health care. those companies can under sell the us made product and still make more money.the fact is moral behavior cannott be legislated.
