Happy Birthday America from the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court of the United States gave America a wonderful birthday present just in time for our annual July 4th celebration.  As you take off for the beach or chomp down on a hamburger or  watch the fireworks this year, think about what  a gift the Supreme Court gave us by upholding the Affordable Care Act.

The bankruptcy figures alone, quoted by Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, at the Health Care Summit  in 2010 should give you enough to cheer about.  In addition, think of the infants who won't die or be left with debilitating handicaps because their mothers can now afford pre-natal care.  Think of the people who will not longer have to use hospital Emergency Rooms for Primary Care and think of the people who won't die because they can't afford to see a doctor. On top of that, think of all the money we taxpayers will save in the long run.

  For more info and to sign a petition thanking President Obama for passing the Affordable Care Act, go on over to

Happy Birthday America and thank you SCOTUS  for a birthday gift of life and health for millions of Americans.

Well, it's a relief to know that insurance company discrimination based on pre-existing conditions is out the door, and that preventive care won't be charged co-pays or deductibles. Still, I'm nervous about the financial penalty for those who don't have insurance.
