Supreme Court is expected to issue its ruling on Obama Care.
So what are your thoughts on what that ruling will be? WIll it be struck down entirely, or upheld, or will parts of it be struck down?
My guess is that most of it will be left intact, but that the mandatory provision will be struck down but the rest of it will be left alone.
Btw, its interesting that the SC is releasing its ruling on its last day before adjournment. Seems like they want to get out of town quickly.
Without the mandate, the rest of the bill would collapse under the financial burden. You CANNOT cover pre-existing conditions without requiring everyone to have insurance.
Insurance is built on the premise that the majority of people will pay more for insurance than they will ever collect in services...and that this spend pays for the minority that receive much more than they pay.
With coverage of pre-existing conditions and no mandatory insurance, they young and healthy Americans will forego insurance until they really need it. Then, they can purchase it and have everything covered. The medical/insurance industry would collapse under this scenario.....unless premiums SKYROCKETED for those with the insurance.
