Court Strikes Down Part of Health Care Reform
A court in Virginia was asked to strike down the entire law but the judge flinched and only struck down the part requiring individuals to purchase insurance. This was somehow an over reach of the government. If this is an over reach what about the requirement that insurance companies cover pre-existing conditions. If we want to go in this direction we should let hospitals and clinics turn people away. You should have to either present an insurance card or proof of ability to pay before treatment. Those of us who have insurance wind up paying for the uninsured. I for one am tired of paying (and I'm for single payer). If we are not going to require insurance then we are also right in denying care. Become a heartless conservative.
