Here are my two cents before the Supreme Court ruling on the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, is handed down: it’s fine with me either way—either that they uphold it or that they strike some or all of it down.
It’s fine if they uphold it, because it means one (admittedly small) step toward providing healthcare for more Americans. And we can build on that.
And it’s fine if they strike it down, because there are plenty of better options for providing decent healthcare to all Americans—like public and community provision of healthcare services.
The fact is, the Affordable Care Act still leaves both providing healthcare and financing healthcare in private, corporate hands. And we can do better much better than that
