Woman’s Nightmare Of Living Uninsured
March 27, 2012 by staff
Woman’s Nightmare Of Living Uninsured, Day two of arguments are currently underway at the U.S. Supreme Court over President Obama’s signature health care legislation, the Affordable Care Act, signed into law in March 2010 and currently on pace to go into full effect by 2014.
The three-day hearings began Monday with the justices listening to arguments over whether they had jurisdiction to rule on a law that has not been fully implemented. The main topic for Tuesday is the most controversial part of the law, the individual mandate, which would require most Americans without health insurance to buy coverage or pay a penalty. Other issues to be considered this week include whether states can be forced to expand Medicaid to cover low-income people without health insurance, as well as what happens next if key parts of the law are struck down.
Today almost 50 million Americans do not have health care coverage, according the latest Census Bureau figures.
A new poll by CNN/ORC International finds that the majority of Americans do not want the high court to completely overturn the current law. Nearly 25% of Americans want the Supreme Court to leave the bill untouched; 43% of respondents believe some parts should be overturned and 30% want the bill completely overturned.
