Bear with me on this!
When the Affordable Care Act (AKA Obamacare) came out, Sarah Palin told everyone there were going to be death panels to decide who would live and who would die. She was doing what Sarah Palin does best and just making crap up to try to frighten people. But now, SCOTUS is essentially serving the role as a death panel. Why?
Should SCOTUS rule that the challenge is legitimate and that federal subsidies only apply to those that obtain insurance thru state run health care exchanges, people in 37 states will lose their subsidies. That means that millions of people will no longer be able to afford health insurance without those subsidies. And with no health insurance, they won’t be able to afford health CARE. That could put a lot of people in very serious trouble when it comes to receiving health care. And it isn’t at all unreasonable to think that some will die as a result of this.
So, SCOTUS is currently trying to decide who will live and who will die.
Let’s hope SCOTUS sides with proving Sarah Palin wrong again!
