Health care: The Supreme Court and possible industry changes

by

Now that moderates and liberals have pushed through a conservative plan to insure everyone, we are in the clear, right? Not so.

First, the Supreme Court ruled that states could opt out of PPACA’s medicaid expansion, which means that a great many people could find themselves without Medicaid who were covered until that ruling- subject to the will of their state governments. Something will need to be altered to cover those who won’t be covered under Medicaid.

Second, industry is now lobbying federal officials to amend the PPACA to favor them, which is likely an even greater threat to health care coverage.

When are we going to get industry money out of politics? The conflict of interest is apparent to anyone with even the slightest familiarity with politics.
