Not totally - the expansion of Medicaid was struck down

What is strange/inconsistent is that they found that it was legal for the Congress to require individuals to buy health insurance (but rationalized it as under Congress' taxing authority rather than the commerce clause) but that it was not legal for Congress to require states to expand Medicaid.

Actually, Congress could strike it down..... but I think that is going to be impossible with needing 60 votes in the Senate...


I hope to read some on the decision later... but from the little I read, they seemed to say the mandate is a 'tax' and I had said that the gvmt did have the ability to tax us... seems they looked beyond the words and looked at the results....

My take is they reacted to the initial comments of Justice Roberts regarding the rather than waiting for him to complete the reading of his ruling. Trying to be first and allowing accuracy to be a casualty.

Let's try to keep the discussion focused on what the law is and how it's implementation will affect us.

CNN is really that bad . . . probably pre-recorded analysis so they could be "first" and just pulled the wrong tape.
