If the Supreme Court strikes down Obama’s health insurance mandate, emergency room bills will be passed on to taxpayers, as they have been for the last quarter century.
That unresolved question — who pays? — helped shape President Obama’s 2010 healthcare law and its requirement that Americans get health insurance. For years, it even convinced many Republicans, including former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, to champion an insurance mandate. But today, the insurance mandate is the central target of GOP opposition to the law.
Another excellent healthcare piece by Noam N. Levey.
