Some Thoughts on the Healthcare Debate
by Joel R. Glucksman on June 29, 2012
On Thursday June 28 the United States Supreme Court issued its contribution to the healthcare debate. In a lengthy and rather surprising ruling, a bare majority of the Justices upheld the Constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare. The High Court thus returned the issue to the forum where it truly belongs — the hands of voters and their elected representatives.
It is not the intent of this posting to debate the merits of the Affordable Care Act, nor the respective advantages of single-payer, government-mandated, and purely capitalistic healthcare. Nor can I opine on the economics of any of these systems. Your correspondent is not a healthcare expert, nor a professional economist (although I majored in Economics at Columbia College). I am simply a practicing attorney in northern New Jersey. However, in my bankruptcy and creditor’s rights law practice, I have come to some conclusions about healthcare in America.
