A federal district court judge in Pensacola, Florida dealt the controversial Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) another blow today by holding the entire Act to be void because a key provision - the individual mandate - does not pass constitutional muster.
And if "your" state wants to move ahead on HCR, implementation of PPACA, that's fine by me.
But as of right now, from a constitutional basis, there's no requirement to do so. It's not my "bias" it's well established legal precedent. Otherwise PBO's Justice Dept wouldn't have to request "clarification of the judge's ruling", ie an order to for states to continue implementation during the appeals process.
Also, through nullification, the state(s) can refuse to enforce the law even if the SCOTUS rules in the Admin's favor. IE, medical marijuana.
And I hope Idaho does just that, if it comes down to it.
No, I don't need to look at your ref'd website to know that "expert projections' are only right on one thing,Also you can research more about the Colorado Trust @ www.coloradotrust.org rather than "shoot" from your biasis opinion on every thing!
- that they are consistently wrong!
Ie, today headlines that contrary to "forecasts" the 4th quarter GDP was only + 2.8% as opposed to "estimates" of 3.2. When you're talking B's of $'s, that's a huge amount.
How many times have we heard "Unemployment unexpectedly rose to ... " or "Despite previous growth indicators/forecasts the "X" quarter "Y" market fell "Z" % ..."
That's fine, trust your sources.
BTW, please don't clutter the O-care issue by dragging DU into this. That's a whole 'nother issue by itself.
