Marty--In your interview with Zara you say that the market might respond positively to a Supreme Court decision against the health insurance pool mandate. "Reducing uncertainty" about small businesses' obligations under the ACA would be welcomed. I think this is probably true, but as a senior (or "aging") physician, nothing is more unsettling than continuing our catastrophically failed conglomeration of uncoordinated health plans. If we look just at cost control, we can see that every other advanced nation is doing better than we are at while providing overall better care. At some point, we must get off the dime.
Yes Rich, I do expect that the market might welcome a nay vote on the mandate. And I certainly understand your frustration. There are clearly well-intentioned people on both sides of this debate.
