It takes a hell of a long time to get something complicated into public understanding.

The Afordable Care Act is, well, pretty complicated. So, perhaps after today's ruling, more of the people who don't know a thing
about it except they hate it, will get to know it ain't so bad. Yes, it gives the insurance idiots more money, but it will save lives. And I hate the insurance companies too..But it will save lives, and it is already being implemented as opposed to being proposed as single payer is now a proposal.........And it passed the House of Representatives..by 2 or 3 votes. One rep in Michigan gave up his career after he changed his vote.

People who couldn't get health care, will get it. Better than what they had before, which is nothing. (we know about pre existing conditions.. Many working poor adults may see care for the first time, perhaps. If the word gets out ..somehow. I think it is a good thing for most of us. I hope that it helps people just to live better and more healthy lives. At least I can hope..

1. I'm doing my best at another forum

Not political but with a political board.

We have a woman there who is a home health care nurse who tried to pull the death panel hoax. I shut that down pretty damn quick!

2. It's the future, that we can't see clearly now. It's a matter of time.
