This is what open heart surgery bills look like
Several Sundays ago, I
my then-22-year-old daughter's adventure in open heart surgery, all thanks to Obamacare, which allowed her to remain on my insurance. The bottom line: We were terrified the young adult provision would be overturned. We were even more terrified that the pre-existing prohibition clause would be overturned and that the rest of her adult life would be spent in an unending scramble to obtain health care coverage.
Today's decision put that to rest.
So while we're busy discussing (as we should be) the political ramifications, the electoral consequences, the future of the Commerce Clause, let's also keep in mind that people's lives were saved today. And that a heck of a lot of people's futures were just allowed to move forward free of the fear of medical bankruptcy from bills like those my daughter racked up above.
