27. It was a good legal ruling and therefore a good thing for the judicial branch...

As far as health care goes, my hope is that the insurances companies will be heavily regulated and health care costs drop to reasonable levels. I know HHS already made one price adjustment after realizing the prices they set were still too high so I hope for more of the same. When you can go halfway across the world and get cheaper, quality care with no insurance than you can get with insurance in this country, the system is ridiculously broken.
