gotta love that.
donít be surprised that it becomes the entire healthcare system outside employer provided insurance.
itís something trump supported before he was against it.
itís something i believe most politicians would support because itís a system we already have and it would be easy to hide behind as support for those who have it or may need it.
i have figured from the beginning that this is where the whole thing is headed.
this new challenge and ruling may usher it in.
very good points. It will be interesting to see how this does play out.
