Many were sadden to see the outcome of the health care legislation; not so much as to the decision but how the court arrived at the decision. It entered the court as a "fee" and was approved as a "tax." I strongly doubt that as a "tax" it would have survived the rocky road to the court.
Chief Justice Roberts referred to himself as an umpire whose only responsibility was to judge the law and not to be concerned with its impact on the population. He then cast his vote based upon his change.
Change in our care system is badly needed. This legislation just makes a dysfunctional system unsustainable.
Personally I find it not fiscally affordable — already estimated at twice the cost posted by its sponsors; a political and not a compassionate approach to mending a serious problem; not manageable with existing available medical facilities; and as such, seems no longer a voter favorite. The court should have, if they were so disposed, sent it back to its makers for resubmission and not taken it upon themselves to amend it.
