You are an uninformed idiot. The way liberals like Obama think and what thugs like Putin decide to do are inextricably connected.
Kurt Schlicter is a Colonel in the US Army Reserves and has actually served in combat, idiot.
The key difference is that an insurance pool is a voluntary collective & in a truly free market one would be able to choose whether to join any particular one based on it's coverage criteria, Kurt is not ignorant of risk pooling, he is an attorney after all. I'm pretty sure he believes 3rd party payment is one of the main drivers of the accelerating increases health costs & Obamacare is making it even worse.
I hope Hugh is right, but I fear that this will be a precedent for more Congresso-Judicial bait & switch. Congress passes a law that is politically tenable (if barely) but is unconstitutional; the court transforms it into one that passes constitutional muster but would be political poison--too late for the people's representatives to have a say. That spells tyranny in my view.
