ObamaFail

Holman Jenkins: Obamacare saved, still doomed
This was always the fatal problem of ObamaCare. Reality could not have instructed President Obama more plainly: The last thing we needed, in a country staggering under deficits and debt, a sluggish economy and an unaffordable entitlement structure, was a new Rube Goldberg entitlement. The last thing we needed was ObamaCare. The nation and the times were asking Mr. Obama to reform health care, not to double-down on everything wrong with the current system.
Even with this week's Court success, he failed—and it's not as if there wasn't a deep well of policy understanding in Washington that he could have drawn on to take the country in a better direction. Regardless of any Supreme Court ruling, reality will pass its own judgment on the Affordable Care Act and it won't be favorable.

I really do not understand how something that will help Americans who are sick without financial stability can be considered a "fail". Yes, granted the policy and taxes are issues but you can not and should not put a price on ANY human life. Your ignorance and lack of compassion shouldn't even be allowed to be expressed in ink.

we, as a country, SHOULD NOT allow insurance companies to insure people with pre-existing conditions! We also NEED to allow insurance companies to drop their coverage when they get sick!

I thought the newspaper reports are objective. What happened to you? You are an obvious Republican and a racist.

Anthony,
You can not legislate compassion. Everyone was touting this as FREE healthcare for all. But it's not free there is a tax that ALL folks must pay. The rich already have healthcare, the poor will now pay and it will be mandated to be payed against the IRS rules. Get a clue!

Nothing racist in this story, unless you have a problem with socialism!

Danny,

I hear you on this falling on the backs of the already struggling.. but it's the kansas city shuffle. they get us arguing over who should have health care and how and we know the economy is already doing horribly and that jobs are scarce and that to imagine forcing another tax on people for not having health insurance -- it just doesn't make sense. but that's it! that's the kansas city shuffle - we're distracted from how much of our taxes are going into war and domestic surveillance and how this is just giving more power to the larger corporate-government hybrid via the health insurance industry. now, states can opt out, but what if they have friends in the health industry too. i'm sure Corbett's maniacal mind would love to get in on that. follow the money, right? i know you think it's socialism, but you know i don't think in those terms and it's more simple - take care of people. the "system" isn't supposed to make sense or else we might just start resolving conflicts on our own without needing to relying on anyone.

Swan,

Thanks for stopping by!! Maybe the law should just be changed so a "child" can stay on his parents health insurance until they are 65? When did a child become 26? When does 26 become 32? 34?

Self empowerment. Work hard, get stuff. It's not rocket science.

Bob, you are indeed right...

Only the people who own businesses and work for a living will be TAXED for healthcare. All the freeloaders will remain free and pay nothing in Federal taxes or healthcare. You got it right again!!
