    Looks like another blow to the (Un)affordable Patient Protection Act or whatever the heck it's called.

    Not a fair characterization as this aspect of the law already was on the path to the Supreme Court. Two contrasting opinions. Let the Supremes hash it out.

    "The decision contrasts with one by the U.S. Appeals Court for the 6th Circuit, based in Cincinnati, which had upheld the individual mandate as constitutional. That case has already been appealed to the Supreme Court."

    Darn conservatives, trying to get the court to push their agenda through instead of trying to legislate change ;D

    This thread may not end well, but it could end well in the larger sense.

    If your erection lasts more than four hours, please consult your physician.

    Yes, the "JUST DIE ALREADY. And while you're at it, we'll take everything you own." plan should remain in place. It's the American way.

    The sooner we can get back to the cost of health care rising at five times the cost of living, the better.

    Insurance companies don't make triple-digit-million quarterly profits by signing lots of checks! Let's hope they're allowed to return at once to refusing to allow sick people to access treatment.

    The cost of health care will continue to rise as long as there is unfettered demand. The health care industry will continue to grow to meet that demand. The abstract solution is easy:

    Controlling overall expenditure costs means either decreasing pay for each unit of patient care or decreasing the amount of care provided. The first would require that tuition to train for patient care professions be made more affordable and the cost of supplies decrease; the second would require rationing of health care access
