Do you think health care will be more affordable now that the SCOTUS affirmed Obamacare?
The Obamacare is a law that obliged everyone to avail of a health plan come 2014. Some parts of the law are already in effect and now that it is affirmed by the SCOTUS, do you think this will bring the health care cost down so that it will be more affordable?
PPACA doesn't reduce costs, it increases them. Now it will be fully and more rapidly implemented we will begin to see that sooner.
I don't know what would make anyone think that costs would come down just because everyone is forced to buy something. There is nothing in the law that says insurance companies must charge less for insurance while providing more services for free. Who do you think pays for all of those "free" services? Those who are paying premiums, just like before. Anyone getting something for free is actually just getting something paid for by someone else.
The US already has the most expensive health care in the developed world for one of the worst health care ratings, according to the treasury and independent review the bill will save money and slightly reduce overall costs, the point is that the costs will be concentrated on people who can afford to pay them.
More important is the 45 000 American lives yearly that will be saved by Obama-care (according to Harvard study).

I think I read on the cnn.com overview that they expect healthcare prices to go up because of Obamacare. I don't have a head for politics, so I'm not really understanding why.

For me, U.S. House majority leader Eric Cantor made the best lie on Morning Joe (6/29/2012). Cantor said that the law takes away your healthcare policy and replaces it with one dictated by Washington. NBC’s Tom Brokaw...
