SCOTUS: John Roberts (hearts) Barack Obama
Original post made by Dorothy R, Greater Miranda, on Jun 28, 2012
Puts a death knell in any sort of public option or Medicare-for-all plan anytime soon. We are stuck with private, for-profit insurance companies under the republican plan called ObamaCare. A plan that came from the far-right Heritage Foundation, with mandates supported by Newt Gingrich, Bob Dole and Mitt RomneyCare.
With national health outcomes that rank 37th in the world.
Highest cost among industrialized countries, to be 37th place. Yay! We're #37!!!! America First, ummmm, 37th!!
Highest costs, mediocre outcomes.
John Roberts is, at heart, a corporatist, even more than a Federal Society elitist. He supported health insurance companies on this Act, because it drives profits.
Should have seen this coming, but I didn't see anyone predicting Roberts the Corporatist would be the swing.
Paltry consolation? Going back and looking at all the tea baggers' predictions that the ACA was unconstitutional.
Heads are exploding as you read this. George Bush's appointee saves ObamaCare.
One more week to vote!
Don't forget to cast your ballot online. Voting ends May 29th. Stay tuned for the results in the July 21st issue of the Palo Alto Weekly.
