Anonypalooza

I can see by the unforgiving clock on the wall that a new post is not in the offing. So, the best we can manage is a tweet or two. Meanwhile, an open thread, the difference being that ONLY anonymous commenters may participate. Everyone is free to chime in, so long as we don't know your identity -- you know, like a masquerade ball.

So...

Does anyone here think the Halbig case has any serious chance of gutting Obamacare, or is it mainly wishful thinking?

Also, another good article by Kevin Willamson here.

OK, so we all know Obamacare is the worst thing ever, a massive state intervention in economy and society that can't work and tromps all over our freedom.

So how is it that the Catholic Church has supported universal healthcare since 1919?

""The state," the guide read, "should make comprehensive provision for insurance against illness, invalidity, unemployment, and old age."

Because the church is totally infallible when it comes to telling states how they should run their economies.

Universal health care has existed in the United States for a long, long time. The EMTALA of 1986 enshrined it.

Universal health insurance is a different thing all together.

...comprehensive provision for insurance against illness, invalidity, unemployment, and old age

That doesn't even make sense. How do you insure "against" old age?

It is not so much as being on the same page, it is respecting the margins.

You realize that Social Security is basically a forced transfer of money from children to their parents, right?

I mean when my sisters and I pay social security tax and our father gets a check, it kind of looks that way.

Did that stop your father from getting old?

Hint: The against part is the joke.

Did your father not know that he was going to get old?

You don't have to insure yourself for something you know is going to happen at a given, known time and can plan for. Retirement is such an event.

I have been paying into SS (how appropriate) longer than you have likely been alive. If they shut it down tomorrow and never pay me a dime, I will still get checks every month when I retire because I knew I was going to die or get old.

My point is that you are insuring against your children not supporting you in your old age.

And the joke is that he doesn't actually need his social security check.

So, I assume that I will get a refund at some point in the indefinite future.

"My point here, Dude, is that there's no reason..."

For filial responsibility laws?

"Filial responsibility laws (filial support laws, filial piety laws) are laws that impose a duty upon third parties, usually (but not always) adult children for the support of their impoverished parents or other relatives.[1] In some cases the duty is extended to other relatives. Such laws may be enforced by governmental or private entities and may be at the state or national level. While most fillial responsibility laws contemplate civil enforcement, some include criminal penalties for adult children or close relatives who fail to provide for family members when challenged to do so. The key concept is impoverished, as there is no requirement that the parent be aged."

States with these laws:

"Alaska, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia.

In addition, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico also has filial responsibility laws."
