How the Supreme Court's Health Care Decision Affects You

There are 53 comments on the abcnews.go.com story from Jun 21, 2012, titled How the Supreme Court's Health Care Decision Affects You. In it, abcnews.go.com reports that:

In less than two weeks, the Supreme Court will hand down its decision on the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Signed into law in 2010 by President Obama, it's a cornerstone of his presidency -- in his words, the "most important piece of social legislation since the Social Security Act passed in the 1930s and the most important reform of our health care system since Medicare passed in the 1960s."

This Health Care ruling, depending on the decision will be for the republicans like the dog finally catching the car it had been chasing down the street everyday for years… OH CRAP! NOW WHAT?

This is a win-win for President Obama because overturning it all together will take away all the great things that are in it and will be seen as a partisan overreach by the Court that a few years back did a similar partisan ruling with Bush v Gore… thus giving the President another issue to run on.
Taking away the mandate will give the President a chance to tweak the law and add some things that were left out.
And finding the law wholly constitutional is a major victory for the American people and a complete rebuke to the unpatriotic right who could care less about health care and the people who can’t get it.

Really and ramming it through like he did, not a single republician senator voting for it and in the house not a single republician representative voting for it was not a partisan overreach.

Looks like our inept president has caused more onerous problems for the United States that we don't need to deal with right now. He really is an amateur.
I cannot see for the life of me how people can side with his left-wing socialist agendas. Especially after seeing how socialist Europe has failed so terribly. I just can't see it. Maybe Hitler was right. "The Masses are the Asses"

There is only one SOCIALIST running (not counting the fringe candidates.) He is a National Corporate Socialist.

You will find out how right Hitler was if the CORPORATE SOCIALIST gets into office.

SO...Don't vote Socialist GOP.

the house of reps had an 87 seat democrat advantage, yet the bill passed by a mere 7 votes...had 4 of those gone the other way, it would have died on the house floor..
the entire thing, from the secret meetings in harry reids office, to the bribes and threats to key senators, to the idiocy of nancy pelosi's "well learn what's in it after we pass it" remark are surely destined to brand this the most corrupt piece of legislation EVER passed by congress...to make it even worse, the outright lies by obama on this debacle are no less than mind boggling...
the media chooses to ignore obama's promise of transparent proceedings on c-span, the blatant lies that passing this abortion is the KEY to getting the economy going, the blatant lies that you would be able to keep your present insurance, the blatant lies that this will rein in costs...

and the media continues to ignore the lies and carry obama's water on this...

A Corporate Socialist? What planet do you live on? The failed socialist economic system of Europe is irrefutable proof
that your ideas about economics and especially Obama's ideas on economics is hurting every man, woman, and child in this country. How do you and Obama carry such heavy loads when deep down in your hearts you have to know that you are dead wrong? Everybody else seems to know it. Just look at socialist Europe. It's a mess. Why would anyone like you support that failed socialist, liberal, system in place of our wonderful, robust, free-market system? Why? Is there money or power involved with your decision? What?

I am tired of your National Socialist attitude.

We pay more for uninsured than we ever will when they are insured.
The only people who will have to pay more are the FREELOADERS.

You are just a National Socialist FREELOADER.
A FREELOADER defending your right to FREELOAD off working Americans who insure their family's health.

I am so tired of supporting you and your shiftless family and 'comrads.' Move to South America, be with your real pals.

Go, FRELOADER, GO !

END corporate socialism. Tax corporations the same as individual Americans. Throw out special deals, "corporate tax breaks" as violations of the FOURTEENTH Amendment.

Obama's health care proposals that were passed by a democrat controlled house and senate -- ignoring the wishes of the majority in this country to abandon their attempt to control our lives. This is not a new approach to control the masses through health care schemes shoved down ones throat. A free people who are not subservient to governments don't do that.-- Hitler did, and so did Stalin for dependency and control.....Unfortunately, we have a crop of ersatz Americans that were brought up on this Socialist pap ushered in by liberal dumbed down PubEd.....

Our current system over countries of socialized medicine....

A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very
interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International
Health Organization.

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:

U.S. 65%

England 46%

Canada 42%

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received
treatment within six months:

U.S. 93%

England 15%

Canada 43%

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it
within six months:

U.S. 90%

England 15%

Canada 43%

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within
one month:

U.S. 77%

England 40%

Canada 43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million
people:

U.S. 71

England 14

Canada 18

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are
in "excellent health":

U.S. 12%

England 2%

Canada 6%

Try getting the straight facts from the Prava media...

Stupid for supporting FREELOADERS like you? NO.

No, I have no choice.
But, I support stopping you FREELOADERS from slurping at the trough where we honest Americans must pay for out insurance. GO, move to a foreign country, go somewhere where you can continue to FREELOAD, you bum.

Yet that is just what Mr Romney will give us.

Europe is in deep trouble because of corporate finance. Same as us.
Corporate-government hijonks isd what crashed their economy, same as ours. Their medical insurance had nothing to do with the GREAT BUSH RECESSION.

I am trying to eliminate the FREELADING SOCIALISM that people like you and cary support.

When you bums sidle up to the Emergency Room for your splinters, colds, and broken arms, and then don't pay the hospital; who do you think makes up that difference, THE NURSES?
THE SURGEONS? HA!

No, freeloader-bum; WE the insured make it up. You want no mandated health insurance so that you can still FREELOAD.

And, corporate Socialism of the GOP-Romney stripe is also draining our country, but is uit a separrate issue than health insurance.

Go away, and FEEELOAD in Europe, since it means so much to you.
Get off my USA tab.

Oh, right. Look at dictator obama and how much taxpayer money he gave to corporations. As I said, it's the libs who have this 'animal' tagged. Do you honestly think people are going to believe your nonsense? You may be able to sell that to the stupid....of which there are plenty drooling in front of their tvs. I doubt you'll find as many fools like that in venues such as this. You just have to keep increasing your number of sock puppets to make it appear like there are. The Internet was once the place where conservatives could be found in greater numbers. AOL being bought out by Huffington does show the changing times. Liberals are attempting to control the Internet too. It may happen in our lifetime.
