Um, James, that’s a bit like saying being convicted of shoplifting makes your jail sentence the public prosecutor’s problem.
The fact is, even if the court upholds the mandate, Congress will almost certainly end up repealing it, since it’s opposed by 70 percent the American people. In which case, just like the court, Congress will find it easier to erase the whole blackboard and start over - hopefully with a patient-centered approach.
Sorry, James. Your health care law is doomed - all of it.
