Finally! This makes all citizens responsible for their own health care. It relieves some of the burden of Medicare.
We should all pay for our own health care in one way or another. Either buy it or get taxed to cover the expenses the Government ends up paying when you don't buy it and get sick.
It will make it so all Americans can have health insurance and not be discriminated. Young adults can stay on their parent's insurance until they can get established working enough to buy their own.
People who whine that you want people to pay for themselves but complain about a law that makes them do just that are hypocrites. Stop hating on ObamaCare...it's here to stay. - Cihuapilli
Supreme Court upholds health care mandate
In a historic decision, the Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the critical piece of President Obama's Affordable Care Act, the individual mandate.
By upholding the individual mandate -- the requirement for all Americans to acquire health insurance -- the court kept what many described as the "heart" of the law. The decision creates some certainty surrounding federal health care policy, allowing federal and state rulemakers to, for now, implement the law.
