The 2010 law, the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) requires non-exempted individuals to maintain a minimum level of health insurance or pay a tax penalty.

The Supreme Court ruling was as follows:

• “The Affordable Care Act is constitutional in part and unconstitutional in part,” Roberts wrote.
• “The individual mandate cannot be upheld as an exercise of Congress’s power under the Commerce Clause. That Clause authorizes Congress to regulate interstate commerce, not to order individuals to engage in it.”
• “it is reasonable to construe what Congress has done as increasing taxes on those who have a certain amount of income, but (who) choose to go without health insurance. Such legislation is within Congress’s power to tax.”

Dr. Elaina George joined us to discuss ObamaCare from a Doctor/Patient Perspective. She offers a comprehensive view of ObamaCare that you are not likely to often hear!

1. Will ObamaCare put many Americans with serious illness at risk of death due to rationed services?

2. How did healthcare costs get so out of control?

3. Will the Affordable Care Act really decrease costs

4.. How will The Affordable care Act affect the practice of medicine?

5. What are some things that could be done to actually improve the quality and access to healthcare while decreasing costs?

Our guests addressed these questions and offered numerous practical solutions, including Fees for Services~

We also discussed the U.S. House of Representative’s decision to hold Eric Holder in criminal contempt!
