It was a tight one. That’s why there are 9 Supreme Court Justices and not 8…or 10…or any other even numbered selection. In a victory tallied 5-4, the highest court in the land (USofA), declared the legal mandate for individual health coverage to be within their interpretation of the United States Constitution and all existing law. I disagree with that decision completely, but I’m very much in favor of such a healthcare system. I’m always a dichotomy.
In a direct emotional response, many Obama haters have claimed that they’re moving to Canada. How’s that for ironic, or perhaps ignorant humor?
Will this put an end to the debate that has chewed on the political scope of the USofA for the past two years? Well. Of course not. Have people stopped arguing about Roe vs. Wade? Will they ever? People who hate the idea of such healthcare reform will always hate the idea of such healthcare reform. Sure, as life plays out, they may find that it saves the life of someone they love, and then they’ll dig in their heels and say that they were glad that the person is still alive, but there would have been other alternatives than to rely on tax-mandated legality to afford everyone some health coverage.
We’re about half stupid in this country from time to time. I can’t argue with the generosity of many people within the United States, as well as the courage and heart that is put on display during certain seasons, events and scenarios, but the battles we choose sometimes… We war against one another instead of the powers that/who be, who puppet us like marionettes, always blaming the executor as opposed to the legislator. The system of checks and balances has lacked serious accountability, but in this case, it was there. And it’s rather obvious–this is a divisive issue.
Soap box recycled.
Obamacare is here to stay. Better ideas? Do the work. Make it happen. Everyone is seriously tired of the complaining with no action to accompany it. I genuinely don’t care one way or another. I’m going to continue to enjoy my life whether I’m monetarily dirt poor or excessively rich.
