A page from the Romney/Scott Cookbook of Big Business, just change the regrettable name to something obscure and SHINEY.

Good. What's that sound a duck makes, again? They seem to be talking about "Integrative Medicine" when they say something.

FTFA's Coments: We are careful not to use the words health, healthcare, treat, disease, etc. for fear of stepping on the toes of big business.

I'm guessing you loons don't use those words because you don't do any of those things and there are probably some legal consequences when you draw a circle on a sick person's forehead, stick a magnet up their ass and then tell them its healthcare.

There's also this gem in there:

I don't want Medicare for my kids or me! We have autoimmune disease and I don't want the government involved in their healthcare at all. I want to be able to afford continuing to take my oldest son who's disease is more severe to a naturopath so he can keep using low dose naltrexone. His immunologist refuses to prescribe it for him, but it helps him so much! Personally, I worry about Obama causing restricted or no access to immune modulators or off label uses for medicine like this. I honestly wish one of his daughters got autism or PANDAS, because then he would understand how hard it is.

If this gets greenlit, maybe we can use the followup tag when the article about this kid dying gets submitted.

To everyone's surprise, John Roberts, chief justice of the Supreme Court, didn't exactly approve or disapprove of Obama's healthcare law. He simply rewrote important parts of it and then approved it.

The trick is getting the right magnet. You can just pluck one off something hanging on your fridge and send it to brown town. You need one of those oval rare Earth magnets that'll glide right up the old chocolate starfish.

Ugh. A low-dose naltrexone truther.

Yeah, thank God her "naturopath" has thrown loose the shackles of Big Pharma by off-label prescribing a synthetic drug made for heroin addicts to her son because he's fat and plays video games all day.

I managed to get an ear candle to register on a carbon monoxide detector which might be the 1st scientific justification for their use in centuries... except that the level wasn't high enough to be useful. And that was one out of 6 and the others read 0 out of well... it doesn't matter does it?

This issue is also about religious organizations and their desire to receive payment for their healthcare services.

By applying rule 42, there is a lot of funding available for this treatment (assuming it's videotaped for posterity).

So can someone explain what the whole "you no longer have to buy insurance" part of this article means? It says something about a tax but there is to much derp for me to actually study it out.

Does this mean instead of getting health insurance, you can be taxed instead and get no coverage at all? Explain it like I'm 5.

If you're not covered by health insurance, you have to pay a penalty/tax/whatever you feel like calling it that day (once that particular part of the bill kicks in). That's always been the case for the healthcare reform law. SCOTUS just pointed out that "pay a penalty" and "pay a tax" have no discernible difference in this particular situation.

Do you opt out of the system as well by not being covered? So you have to pay a tax, then get refused at the ER when you're bleeding out?

Before: You must buy insurance, and if you don't, we'll fine you for breaking the law
Now: You don't have to buy insurance, but everyone who does is exempt from this new tax, which is exactly as much as the fine we're no longer levying on people who don't buy insurance

Obamacare doomed the HMO my grandparents had through their employer. Now they have a PPO, high deductible HSA, or dropping healthcare altogether and going with Medicare as their options. Great options for elderly people who want to manage their healthcare costs. I guess they could opt for open-market coverage from Kaiser.
