Health is not what Obamacare is about

tyler — Not that I can predict how the health care Supreme Court decision will turn out, but Tuesday, I was out of town on business, and when that happens I am always glued to talk radio and satellite radio to follow news.
It's something you have to do when you're in my line of work.
I was amazed that many court watchers yesterday were somewhat amazed that some of the Supreme Court would ask challenging questions about the health care law.
I don't think the government's lawyer arguing the case had his best day.
But afterwards, cable analysts and news pundits were calling the fist day of arguments a train wreck for the pro Obamacare side.
To me, this shows you home much the mainstream media is out of touch with the heartland of America.
It was like it's the first time anyone said this may be against the Constitution.
Again, I have no idea how this will turn out.
I've been in this business too long and seen too many court cases thought to be a slam-dunk going the other way.
But there is no doubt we need to improve our health care model. We've not let the free-market work enough.
It's crazy you can shop across the whole country to get the best deal.
I did this a while back when I bought something off the internet from another state because the price was better.
Why cant we do that with medical insurance?
Make the insurance companies roll up their sleeves and start cutting deals.
The presidents health care plan is a bad deal because it opens up the door to a president that would allow the federal government to affect every part of your life.
That's the problem with Obamacare.
Not for what it does now although it's a naive plan.
It's what Pandora's Box will open for other things the feds think we need to do.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
