Escalating health insurance costs are unsustainable and must be addressed. Unless inefficiencies in the current insurance system are addressed, millions more will be added to the 80 million that are uninsured or under insured.
The Public Option fails to address the primary reasons for the escalating costs of health insurance in this nation. However, the Public Option allows the for-profit health insurers to shift much of that burden to the US taxpayer.
Joe Biden to the American people: I don't work for you!!!!
Trump is going to get 4 more because the shitty liberals are going to put Joe on the ticket.
Congrats. You guys played right into MAGA's hands
Of the what? 20+ candidates, you picked the one who is actually the most closely aligned with Trump and stands the least chance of energizing turnout.
That's because the ACA works through private insurance infrastructure not the federal government.
There are several rulings to pull from including that there is no purview in the Constitution for the federal government to legally provide insurance unless you agree that healthcare falls under the General Welfare clause of the Constitution. And that question will be asked by any judge considered by Republicans 100% because General Welfare clause cover a large swath of entitlements/welfare and is the bane of Republicans existence.
Also, right to privacy will he challenged and there is precedence that the federal government should not have access to our private medical information and therefore is not legally allowed to provide insurance without private options for people who are concerned about the federal government having private information.
The other legal argument against in that same area would be that if federal government can demand private information for healthcare it can for other facets of government as well.
It will be challenged and will be decided by Supreme Court. 100%
