Ludicrous Taxifornia Healthcare Proposal

This begins a series of posts about the recently adopted health care reform, a subject I have not discussed on this blog so far. I will not be ranting about how wise or stupid the bill is. If you want to hear me rant, buy me a martini. As long you keep buying, I'll keep ranting. Instead, I want to cover the effects that businesses will face.

The Supreme Court is ready to determine if President Obama’s healthcare plan is within legal limits. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act aims to provide health insurance to more than 30 million previously uninsured Americans. The healthcare sector and exchange traded funds could see action in 2012 on the Supreme Court decision.

I wrote last week about how the fate of health reform depends on the states, given their starring role in carrying out major parts of the
Affordable Care Act. They'll be hugely responsible for setting up the new insurance exchanges -- which have to be running by 2014 -- and enforcing the beefed-up insurance regulations. But there are changes already underway that will give us an early preview of what's to come.
Weak arguments presented by "team Obama" lawyers supporting Obama's healthcare legislation took a beating yesterday, and the beating continued even more so today.
