By refusing to create exchanges, states can effectively repeal much of the law, sparing citizens from the job-killing employer mandate, assaults on religious liberty, and in some cases the individual mandate (WSJ 11/19/12)... People could find themselves having to pay back a subsidy, writes John C. Parker. A $6,000 increase in income could mean the loss of $10,000 in health insurance subsidies. Divorce may be the only option for obtaining affordable insurance for children and the lower-income spouse (WSJ 10/31/12)...We know that an employed physician is less productive than a practice owner, said Mark Smith of Merritt Hawkins (AM News 10/8/12). The effect of these changes could be the equivalent of losing 44,000 physicians over the next 4 years (Forbes 10/8/12).
I am afraid we are in collapse and in the process of digesting what that means.
I believe it may mean that the assumptions of “yesterday” may be fatally flawed. This column assumes there is a Rule of Law, that states have rights, that court’s and the Constitution can still prevail.
I am not so sure of that holding anymore. Trying to make it hold will not be tolerated by this regime in power, with the numbers in their favor.
Their are now more in the wagon than there are pulling the wagon, and these in the wagon are willing to fight against us to stay there. I think it’s called communism.

Dear Lord, I HOPE IT'S NOT HERE TO STAY. But the mess that this dear country of ours is in.....all bets are off. If we didn't have the guy in the white house now, it would have been overturned, but unfortunately that was not to be........AND if the AARP was not on the “inside track” with the bunch that is so called “running the show “ I might be a bit more optimistic about getting rid of that terrible thing...but as it is.....all bets are off.
I'm sure AARP guys , the ones running that thing...are clapping their hands and slapping each other on the back, since their deal early on of jumping on the bandwagon of ObamaCare. Last time I knew, we STILL have a CONSTITUTION, BUT the way it's being run over ROUGHSHOD, by the gang that's running the show....and getting by with it so far....I'm not that optimistic at all....One could say, I feel like a small “voice in the wilderness”. SMALLER GOVERNMENT IS STILL THE ANSWER.
