Default Federal judge in Texas rules ACA unconstitutional last night

A federal judge in Texas ruled the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional last night and the left is starting to melt down. The Democrats are screaming that they're going to appeal the ruling while not realizing that the Trump Administration is the only group that has standing to appeal the decision. This is going to get interesting fast.

The damage is done...

I'm not sure it can be undone at this point.

Hopefully they'll finish it off and we'll be rid of it for good, but health care costs will never return to the pre-ACA levels.

What Mardyn said is correct, once these entitlement programs are in place we will never get rid of them. Best we can hope for is a financial calamity.

The ACA was 3 parts, mandatory coverage, employer mandate, and the individual mandate. The most damaging one was a mandatory coverage and it will be gone.

People tend to forget even if costs were expensive at least coverage was far better than it is now. Every year we’re paying more for less.

The most important part is the one where the government is subsidizing the cost of insurance for over 10 million people. If the individual mandate goes away and mandatory coverage goes away think about who will sign up, what it will cost and who will be paying.

Before this shit storm was put in place, we had insurance for me, wife and daughter to the tune of ~$300 a month with awesome coverage. Now at my work they want $1800 a month, with 50% coverage, $6500 deductible per person... The wife worked at an er for about 3 years, said about 95% of the people who came in with Obama care insurance, it either did not cover an er visit, or the co pay was anywhere from $500-1500 for that visit....

The whole plan is to have more people die due to lack of decent healthcare. That's the end goal. Its been a goal of the socialists for a very long time. Turning it over to the government lets them essentially set up what we'd call the "death panels" where bureaucrats determine what gets paid for. Probably eventually by people who are not even elected. Look at the hyper regulation of the healthcare industry, and look at who actually owns most hospitals. There are some that you definitely do NOT want to be a patient at, insurance or no insurance.

Trouble is that eventually the human body with be completely figured out, and then all their plans will disintegrate. The healthcare will be cheap and will cure anything and everything.

I pretty much have to have some catastrophic happen to me for this insurance to pay for itself.

When I got shot I couldn't think of a good thing to come of it. When I had kids and Obama came into office and insurance shot out of sight....I found one. Tricare is freaking amazing.

I agree with you, my mother is alive and not destitute because of it.
