Beware judicial activism

Posted By on Sat, Nov 27, 2010 at 6:38 AM

A sense seems to be developing that one or another of those terrible unelected federal judges is about to undo the work of the democratically elected Congress and, by judicial fiat, cripple the health care law. Many appeals will lie ahead, of course. In the meanwhile, it would be one of those cases where Republicans applaud judicial activism.

The end of mandated coverage, should it arrive by judicial decree, will effectively mandate the end of insurance reform. That, in turn, should shut off dialysis machines and ventilators, toss sick children off the insurance rolls and reinstate coverage caps that will restore our country to its customary spot in the bottom ranks of free world health coverage of its citizenry. If you want insurance, don't get sick. If you want insurance, get a job. Earn too little to cover your co-pay? Work harder and smarter. Or die.
