President Obama a little confused about the SCOTUS

Hmmmm...

Quote:
"Ultimately I am confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress," Mr. Obama said in the Rose Garden appearance.
I kind of think that is exactly what the Supreme Court of the United States does.

Another round of the politico driven panem et circenses, we have succumbed to these days...

Back at the Health'care' Out of Control Ranch, very little in that health care bill really addresses the underlying basic problems of 'health care', in the US.

I must admit that I have actually read several sections of the bill...not the whole thing, as I doubt anyone has.

Bread and games, is the order of the day, politically and media-wise, imo. Lots of noise, very few significant needs are ever really addressed these days..

Indeed! I try to avoid it but can't help myself when it comes to certain news items. It did shock me that the Prez made such a series of comments with such certainty given that he was a Con Law professor at some point. It is either arrogance or a misunderstanding of the role of the SCOTUS; either one just as bad as the other for him.

I wholeheartedly agree with you that the underlying issue with "health care" is the state of Americans health. Without addressing how unhealthy we are as a society and how little many people care about taking care of themselves, throwing money at the problem or requiring people to have health insurance is like putting lipstick on a pig. (Pun sort of intended.)

I guess it boils do to who you listen to. A number of people have spoken
about the many positive results since the bill has become law. Others on
the other side have their negative viewpoint.

As far as Obama is concerned; his comments are no different than anyone
else. His motive is to hope that someone will hear his point of view and hope
that view will influence the outcome in some way.

Personally I try very hard to avoid the health care system as much as I can.
Is it because of politics? No!!!! It's because I seriously don't want to get in an
endless loop of the healthcare system no matter how good or bad it is. Death
is going to win soon enough. No need for me to make bad living choices that
will lead to having to deal with a disconnected health system.
