What's your view on this, Jenna? Looks like it's going to be made into sausage, with winners all around in politics, but the rest of us with even less clarity than before. The individual mandate looks to be going down, which leaves a lot of other mandates in place. My mostly symbolic catastrophic policy has tripled since this passed. I may well be joining those ranks of uninsured if they split it down the middle.

Regardless on whether you want this healthcare package or something like it, any sane person who has ever read the constitution should be able to recognize that a mandate that all persons alive must purchase healthcare is unconstitutional. There are definately good things in the law, but alot of bad, and its expensive. If you want to help curb costs, reform tort law so that doctors aren't scanning you for every ailment under the sun when all you have is a hang nail just to avoid getting sued.
I think the Supreme Court will shoot this down solely because of the mandate. If not, whats next? It would open the door for the govt to tell you to do anything, and purchase anything.

What I wonder about is whether a State could mandate it's residents and citizens to purchase health care insurance? If so -- I could see an angle where the feds could almost require it, through tying other funding to it, much like was done with the 55 MPH speed limit and the .08 BAC limit.Voting against incumbents until we get a Congress that does its job.
