Yep, It's constitutional...
Stashed in: Politics!
I'm glad that people now can leave the dreaded jobs and get the health insurance on the market. The people above should do this as well...
I wonder how many of those politicians have campaign contributions from health insurance companies.
(Hint: all of them.)
Yes, buy from a very small cabal (abt 35 or so) of companies (i.e. what we used to call a Trust!) or pay a minimum tax of $695 (or 2.5% of income, whichever is greater) per family member.
Expect a wave of consolidations among major medical carriers until the number gets to 7 or so, when implicit collaboration starts kicking in and insurance companies start lobbying themselves greater protections from market forces, then watch the number of insurance carriers consolidate down to 3 or 4, like mobile carriers.
Hm, you think it will all come to single payer via market forces?
no. small cabals are easier to extract protection money from.
