Why couldn’t Obama have just let private insurers wither away like they were totally going to?
More than 16 million Americans have gained insurance coverage as a result of President Barack Obama’s health care law, the administration said Monday as the White House prepares to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the law’s signing.
In releasing the latest estimates, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell called it “the largest reduction in the uninsured in four decades.”
Hopefully the Supreme Court will intervene soon to help to stop our national nightmare! When I hear the Solicitor General argue that the purpose of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was to provide more affordable and highly regulated insurance to as many people as possible rather than to make esoteric points about federalism I feel like I’m looking through the looking glass. This can’t possibly describe the thinking of the libertarian crackpots who drafted and voted for the law.
