National Healthcare on Fast Track to Strike Down

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/justice-dept-asks-supreme-court-to-review-health-care-law/2011/09/28/gIQAjCPK5K_story.html

Basically an appeals court in America said the provision for U.S. national health care that mandates health insurance by 2014 is unconstitutional because American tradition is that you can't mandate people buy from a private company.

Americans are generally required to buy car insurance (which is determined by state law not federal) but you don't have to own a car. Driving a car is a privilege not a right (although a necessity for most Americans). Healthcare will be required because you are a live and live in the U.S., very similar to the Swiss system.

The Supreme Court is the most conservative in 3 generations; I think they will uphold the Appeals Court. ObamaCare is going down.

Good. It's a half-assed program. Start over and do it right.

Aye let the insurance companies pick and choose who they want to insure aswell, ooops..

Lets hope people don't get ill in old age eh while the CEO's are counting their 100 dollar note stacks.

UN charter of Human Rights which I'd say the US is breaking currently. It's a signatory by the way. Signed in 1948 before it became corporation run USA

Article 25.
  • (1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.
