Supreme Court Made Right Decision on Health Care

Senator says there is more work to be done, but Affordable Care Act gets country closer to providing health care to all Americans at a reasonable cost.

I believe the Supreme Court made the right decision today. There is much more work to be done in controlling health care costs, but the Affordable Care Act brings us closer to providing health care to all Americans at a cost we can afford.

Under the bill, nearly 60,000 Wisconsin seniors on Medicare have already saved almost $38 million in prescription drug costs, more than 43,000 of our state’s young adults have gained health insurance coverage, more than 400,000 women now have access to preventive cancer screenings and no one can be denied coverage for a preexisting condition.

As we know, health care costs are a drag on our economy and the Affordable Care Act tackles some of the most rapidly growing health care expenses.

Sorry Senator, Scalia, Kennedy, Alito and Thomas made more sense than Roberts on this one. But that's OK, for even though Robert's made a big mistake, he did fire up the "Silent majority" once again to fight liberalism/ progressivism/ socialism. Now go back to sleep sir!

I'm glad Herb isn't running again. It saves me time of writing him everytime he opens his mouth. And I can take him off my impeachment list. IMPEACH OBAMA NOW!!! And because of Judge Roberts last minute behind closed door deal--IMPEACH HIM ALSO. This isn't sour grapes, because I believe in our system, but this country can ill afford any more usurpative Judicial Law or Executive Orders! Hitler or Stalin would praise the way this country is being ruled. Sad days for our REPUBLIC!! I only hope that we can keep it, because there is absolutely no other country on earth that is capable of protecting Mans' Freedom. If they usurp our Costitution like they have been--WE'RE DONE!!!
