    A) they didn't get cut out of the loop entirely (single payer), and B) the mandate was supposed to deliver them a whole slew of healthy new people forced to buy insurance.

    The price was no denial for 'prior conditions' and being forced to spend a fixed percentage of profits on nothing but health care. Without the individual mandate, they're screwed - and the parts that could be left are too popular to throw out easily, though counting on the Roberts Court for anything is foolish.

      is foolish." Absolutely.

      I will hope for the best, but I won't be surprised if the working class takes it in the chin again.
