    Default If This Case Was A Horse-race It Would Be A Walkover

    HEALTH CARE CHALLENGE

    One of the biggest outstanding cases involves the Affordable Care Act.

    The Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that it was constitutional, but this is a new challenge.

    This challenge was brought by conservatives who believe the last ruling was only ruled constitutional because the Supreme Court interpreted the law as a tax.

    Congress has since removed tax penalties from the law and therefore critics believe justices now have grounds to strike down the entire law.

    Constitutional experts have argued this stands little chance of taking place, however the addition of Justice Amy Coney Barrett has left some wondering: "just how conservative has the Court become?"

    walkover (noun)

    1. Sports. a. An easy or uncontested win in a competition. b. A horserace with only one horse entered, won by the mere formality of walking the length of the track.

    2. A walkaway. See synonyms at breeze.

    On the bright side, makers might quote odds for a few horse degenerates willing to bet the horse will fall down and drop dead before he passes the finish line. I do not see that happening to five justices:


    Finally, defenders of the U.S. Constitution on the High Court will never rule against dirty little moralists stuffing themselves with income tax dollars:

    Supreme Court justices are creatures of the federal government; so predicting the outcome of Supreme Court cases involving tax dollars, and/or Wall Street’s income, is a walk in the park. No Supreme Court will ever decide to reduce or eliminate federal government revenues. In short: Repealing the ACA did not stand a chance when it got to the High Court.

    Repealing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 was a snap for most Americans BEFORE Chief Justice John Roberts said it was a constitutional tax.

    The Affordable Care Act is only slightly better than nothing, and Medicare for All is only slightly better than that.

    What we need is a National Health Service, identical to the United Kingdom's.

    NHS is the standard for the entire world.

    We're no better than second rate until we have it, and eventually we will.
    As usual, however, we'll be one of the last to have it.

Even now a vast majority of Americans want the entire ACA repealed, while the Parasite Class is fighting tooth and nail to hang onto the gains they got from lie on top of lie.

    I didn't ask you, and you failed to answer the question I asked the other poster.

    Look! What is all the fuss about?

    The Affordable Care Act is an option for people. It gives people access to healthcare that were denied before it came about.

    You can have conventional for-profit Healthcare Insurance if you qualify for it, or fortunate enough to have it as an option.

    OR, if you don't have that same fortune or choice- THE ACA is available to you. IT STILL COSTS MONEY AND IT IS NOT FREE.

    The ACA was never intended by anyone to replace For-Profit Healthcare Insurance.

    So what is the fuss about?

    To Geeko Sportivo: Nobody was forced to pay for the healthcare of strangers before the ACA was crammed down the public’s throat —— not to mention all of the other stuff that is buried in the ACA.

    Note that the lying sack of shit did not pay for his illegal aunt’s healthcare before she passed away:

    No one is making you pay for anything but your fair share of taxes!

    I don't see what this woman claiming to be Obama's aunt has to do with anything.

    How hard did those 32 modernized countries fight the transition to a nationalized health system? Can you cite evidence suggesting that they were implemented despite the overwhelming objections of the people?

    And why are none of them fighting to repeal their nationalized health systems, an adopt one modeled after the U.S. health care system?

    To Geeko Sportivo: Asshole. Parasites created ‘fair share’ decades before Trump went into politics.

    And for your information you dumb bastard, ‘fair share’ was invented by Socialist scum in the federal government to justify the income tax in 1913. In short: There was no tax on income for more than a century when Americans were the freest people the world had ever seen. Those liberty-loving Americans also built the greatest nation and culture the world had ever seen. 'Fair share' misdirection is the weapon parasites cite in order to tear down everything they fear.
