See this is what i don't get .......

What do the private Insurance company's have to do with Universal health care.


They should have NO involvement.

preexisting conditions should not even be an issue under a universal healthcare system.


How is it that the USA can take a almost Perfect system like Universal healthcare that has worked around the world for near 100 years & yet somehow, the USA can cock it up so bad & so fast.

Making the entire system unworkable.

It just Blows my mind.

I believe that Roberts saw an ugly "political" vote from his fellow conservative judges. He did not want to allow this. It should not go down on a political bases. So he split hairs on the individual mandate to cancel out the political vote.

With his comment about illusionists, I believe a quote from Mencken is appropriate. 8-)

"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary".
