    Looming court ruling worries some with health woes | Reuters

    When I posted about the positive effects that some of us are getting from the Affordable Heath Care, rw's said I was lying because it has not yet taken effect. I posted FACTS showing that parts of it has been in effect for some time.

    I hope people will read this article all the way through. Its possible you could learn the positive effects you could be getting already.

    Or, if you prefer, you could just go on being ignorant about what the conservative scotus will soon take away from the American people.

    So its not all bad? Wow. That's a shocker. Maybe if they had stopped at a 1000 pages those people would not die.

    The only ones to blame are those who didnt fucking read it.

    The legislation is about 900 pages long.

    The most serious consequence when the ACA is struck down will be the fact that no proposal for reform will be forthcoming. Or any proposal will be derailed by republicans.

    The ACA is a republican plan, and had it been passed by a republican Congress and signed into law by a republican president, you’d be among its most aggressive supporters.

    Opposition to the ACA is partisan, not legal or factual.

    Is that why the Government argued on day one it was NOT a tax and on day 2 it WAS a tax? Maybe you could provide for us the provision in the Constitution where the Federal Government has authority to order citizens to buy a product or face either a tax or a fine for failing to do so?

    It is UNCONSTITUTIONAL and is in fact not a partisan issue.

    In pdf format, it's 955 pages. http://housedocs.house.gov/energycommerce/ppacacon.pdf

    Of course, that's a compilation. The actual version was quite a bit longer. The HOUSE version in Oct. of 2009 was closer to two THOUSAND pages: http://housedocs.house.gov/rules/health/111_ahcaa.pdf ALso, see: Text of H.R.3590 as Amendment in Senate (OC Prepared): Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act - U.S. Congress - OpenCongress (1928 pages).

    Another government pdf version brings it down to 906. http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-111hr3590enr/pdf/BILLS-111hr3590enr.pdf

    Indeed. As I said, the legislation is about 900 pages long.
