 5 -4 decision affirms the health care law.  Chief Justice John Roberts is in the majority upholding a rule on the requirement that Americans must have health insurance. (from CNN.com)

 From poster - I'm reading the decision as soon as it is published, hopefully tomorrow, and will let you know the nitty gritty

I'm on the fence about this, maybe because I don't know all of the details.  I don't think people should be forced to have health insurance.  If they are ill or injured where they need docotor / hospital care, they should be turned away at the doors.  That's their own fault for not getting health insurance.  With that said, I don't think health insurance providers should be able to turn down people no matter what their health condition (excellent health or not) is.  Those with health insurance (high end or not) should be able to pick and choose which hospital and which doctor they want.

Quoting a_leigh_d:

 I never had any doubt.  

I did. the fact that this issue only passed because Chief Justice Roberts was the tie-breaker is historical in the legal/policy world.

 True but since I've always believed that the law was middle of the road, I never felt it would be over ruled.

we don't live in a society where health care will not be provided, somebody is going to pay for it, either  the individual or the tax payer. you can choose your hospital and doctors under the health care law. all it does it establish a system so everyone can buy into some plan at a reasonable price, and get full health care, not just the bits and pieces that people think are morally right. people thought SSI was unconstitutional too, but everyone is sure going to take it when they retire.

Ah, I see what you're saying.  I don't live in the U.S., sometimes it's hard to keep up with the details of what's happening.  Glad the Supreme Court is backing his health care law.

its not that they are being forced to get it from the state they can get it from there jobs or even get it from a small company. i think this will make it cheaper and if everyone has it there will be more people going to the doctors meaning more health care jobs being giving.
