Watching the Republicans commit suicide: Back to Single Payer
There is a severability clause in the bill which will allow the other provisions to remain if the individual mandate falls.
So striking the individual mandate does not destroy ObamaCare and all the other provisions are very popular -- pre-existing condition coverage- children on parents insurance until 26 - preventive care coverage - birth control coverage ----
If the mandate is struck, that will just get rid of insurance company coverage for health care -- you know the insurance guys who raised our premiums by 26% in one year because they had to stop cheating their customers and dropping people when they became ill.
Let it fall and then let Obama can move us into Single Payer as the only way to cover the expense of decent health care in the USA. Or as second creepier choice, the public option
What is The Public Option?
"A government provided healthcare insurance option. It essentially acts like an insurance company in the market. It was designed to add real competition to a market that has none. As a consumer you could choose to stay private or buy into the public option instead. It was a good idea but the insurance comps hated it as it would hurt their profits. They lobbied to have it removed via the dems and repubs and they won. No public option. Sad day in america"
