Well, after digesting the entire Supreme Court decision, Lockton expert Ed Fensholt, JD summed it up this way in his latest Health Reform Advisory Alert: Largely, not much has changed. Still much to do, and not much time to do it.
He also had these thoughts to share, which I thought were perfectly constructed:
One final thought, as we near the Fourth of July. The atmosphere outside the Supreme Court early Thursday was as electric as it was eccentric. Almost circus-like. People both for and against the mandate, chanting, singing, yelling, screaming, carrying signs and waving flags.
But no fisticuffs, no gunplay, no craziness. We think it’s a blessing to live in a country where we can vehemently disagree with each other, but allow courts – rather than swords – to settle our disputes. And where we accept the rule of law even while sometimes second-guessing the wisdom, correctness or righteousness of the decision. Whether we love the health reform law, despise it, or find it something in between, in a larger sense it’s a singular blessing to be having that debate here, in America.
