• What the Supreme Court Health Care Ruling Will Mean for You

    Are you a poor uninsured "person?" A Republican lawmaker? A fully-fledged corporation person involved in the healthcare industry, wondering what the Supreme Court's upcoming ruling on the fate of the Affordable Care Act will mean for you? Wonder no more…

    Law Upheld Law Struck Down Only Individual Mandate Struck
    Barack Obama Will still have access to health care. Will still have access to health care. Will still have access to health care.
    Insurance Companies Will still make a lot of money, especially on younger, healthier patients encouraged by the mandate to eat their insurance-broccoli. Will make even more money, as the requirements that insurance companies dedicate at least 80 percent or 85 percent of premium earnings on health care — rather than on executive swimming pools filled with the tears of uninsured cancer patients – will be eliminated. Will greatly raise premiums to make up for the problem of adverse selection; will still make a lot of money.
    Congressional Republicans Will attack the president for passing an unpopular bill. Will themselves still have health insurance. Will attack the president for wasting his first term on health care reform. Will themselves still have health insurance. Will attack the president for passing part of an unpopular bill. Will themselves still have health insurance.
    Congressional Democrats Will remain powerless in the face of Republican opposition. Will themselves still have health insurance. Will remain powerless in the face of Republican opposition. Will themselves still have health insurance. Will remain powerless in the face of Republican opposition. Will themselves still have health insurance.
    The Uninsured Most will be able to buy subsidized insurance on state-operated health care exchanges or be enrolled in an expanded Medicaid program.Or pay a penalty for failing to buy insurance.The government will not make you eat broccoli. Your mother, on the hand… If you're a minority, you'll still have access to full body exam as part of the Supreme Court's evisceration of the 4th Amendment. All others will receive proctological screening via the Transportation Security Administration. Will still have access to state exchanges and expanded Medicaid, but premiums are likely to go up for the currently insured and previously uninsured alike. Mom can still make you eat broccoli.
