I woke up this morning and heard on NPR that the Supreme court upheld the individual mandate in the Healthcare law that Obama passed. I was actually shocked and happy at the same time. I really didn’t expect the court to uphold it, but their ruling and argument upholding it does make sense. I also read on Reddit this afternoon about Bill O’Reilly’s discussion on his program about the constitutionality of the law. It is interesting that there was the Militia Act of 1792 that also had the same provision, to force people to buy a service. I learn more everyday! Oddly, from one of the guests on Fox News, who got blasted for trying to correct some misinformation before moving on to the question. Then stumping the host!
It also means that the arguments that are given to the court aren’t indicative of the result. Which means they actually do their research before ruling.
