    Re: Oral Arguments



    Festus didn't read any of the thread because we said that a long time ago about Kennedy being the swing vote and why and I went into great detail about him and why he was appointed. Several of us including Galen also added Roberts as a swing vote.

    We also mentioned how the commerce clause was important because the mandate had to fall within it to be legal so there is
    a dispute there. Another words, it's the commerce clause that gives the congress the authority to inact the mandate and thus the broccoli example brought up by Roberts. Liberals
    argue that it does while conservatives argue it doesn't and can
    force us to buy anything like, well, broccoli.


    We also said Kennedy left the back door open
    on that point as Verilli got stronger at the end while adamantly sticking to his point and Kennedy seemed satisified with his answer. We also quoted Kennedy as saying this is unique legislation leaving the back door opened once again.

    That said, OBY threatening him because he's not sure is a sure
    way to lose him. Stupid idiot. Somebody like Kagan obviously
    leaked the vote to him and he's so upset. Otherwise, he was be
    happy as a lark and wouldn't say anything.


    Festus missed many other points as NC mentioned.

    SOLO - You need two things to survive in this world:

    1. good credit
    2. good insurance

    When I was your age I didn't think I needed it. We have another
    poster here who says he is young and he doesn't have it at all and
    hates being forced to buy it.

    But when I was 25 I had unexpected surgury. You never know when you need it so you get it or should even when you're young. I was laid off for a year at 30 and still had a policy thru Metropolitan and paid for it out of my savings. I got Simonella and was in the hospital for 10 days. The bill came to $4700 and MET paid all of it.

    You just never know and if you plan to have children, your wife
    will really need that coverage.

    Just saying - ya know.

    Re: Oral Arguments

    Ha! I wish someone had explained the whole credit thing to me when I was younger because even though I'm only 29 right now, my credit was not something I took seriously until about 2-3 years ago.

    I actually wish that high schools would employ some classwork stuff on credit, money management, etc. When I was in highschool, not THAT long ago, there really were not any classes or instructions or anything regarding credit and how to manage it. It's a shame because a lot of kids really squander good opportunities to solidify their credit early on.

    Just because you didn't understand my posts, AirFlacco, doesn't mean I missed points. I didn't read the thread, true, but I certainly addressed this point about broccoli, which is interesting but the act of repeating yourself doesn't mean I didn't address it.

    I should have resisted & left you on "ignore," and not read this post.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    Re: Oral Arguments

    What do you want?

    A mandate that forces the individual to pay for their health insurance OR,

    an unfunded mandate (EMTALA) that forces YOU to pay for the individual to who refuses to cover their own health risk?

    It's about $1000 a year per person for EMTALA while it is about $750 fine for the individual who chooses to exercise their "liberty" by having me cover their health risk.

    Try to be smart folks.
