There were many speakers and politicians at the event. I got the opportunity to interview Congressman Al Green of Texas about the potential ruling of the Supreme Court on the Affordable Care Act. He brought up an excellent point with regards to a negative ruling’s effect on how Medicare is funded.
After doing some thinking, I would not lose sleep if the Supreme Court strikes down the mandate. As long as we elect a Liberal Democratic Congress and re-elect President Obama the striking of the mandate will be justification to make funding healthcare a tax as opposed to a mandate. By definition this would be the first step towards a single payer system, the very thing those who brought the lawsuit feared the most.
