    [Me: I still don't know what ruling means for citizens of AZ. Will AZ opt out? How will AZ pay for this?]

    “Roberts is arguing that the states are, indeed, sovereign within their own sphere.”

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/afontevecchia/2012/06/28/obamacare-ruling-bullish-for-medicaid-stocks-bad-for-insurers/

    “I think we are in the midst of lots of confusion, the news media pulled the trigger too quickly,” explained Stifel Nicolaus & Co analyst Thomas Carroll, “but I think stocks have it right.” Carroll noted that the decision is bearish for major health care insurers. Companies like Aetna, UnitedHealth, WellPoint, and Humana will see “additional people coming through a more regulated channel, thus driving lower margins.”

    On the flipside, Medicaid companies should see a relief rally, as the federal government’s ability to cut funding for Medicaid programs was limited by the law. The big names in the sector, Amerigroup, Molina, WellCare, and Centene were all experiencing big rallies in the wake of the decision, in part, according to Carroll, because they had all underperformed coming into the ruling.

    Indeed, after a couple of volatile minutes, all the major health care insurance companies were well in the red by 10:55 AM in New York. At the same time, the major Medicaid companies were staging different rallies, but were all up more than 2%.

    While the “Supreme Court overhang is now gone,” Carroll noted that there’s still many unanswered questions.

    How many people will decide to just pay the penalties in order to not get health care insurance, or

    how many companies will decide to pay the penalties and push their employees onto the state-regulated exchanges, where they can buy subsidized insurance,

    asked Carroll.

    The matter is by no means defined, but there is definitely a little more clarity out there. Having Justice Roberts join the liberals in order to uphold the ruling can be claimed as a victory by the Obama Administration, as one of its flagship achievements was on the verge of being reversed. But policy uncertainty will remain, and markets, beyond having a slightly clearer understanding of what the health care landscape will look like …

    http://www.commentarymagazine.com/2012/06/28/supreme-court-surprise-obamacare/

    3) He considerably limited federal power over the states. The Tenth Amendment has been largely a dead letter for decades, declared a mere truism. (In which case, why did the Founding Fathers include it?)

    But Roberts ruled that while the federal government can tie strings to federal money given to the states—in this case additional Medicaid funds—it cannot coerce the states by threatening to take away other funds unless its will is complied with.

    This is a tactic the federal government has been using for years to, in effect, make states mere administrative districts of the federal government. For instance, it forced the states to adopt 21-to-drink laws or face the loss of federal highway funds.

    Roberts is arguing that the states are, indeed, sovereign within their own sphere. That is also a big deal.

    http://www.texastribune.org/texas-health-resources/health-reform-and-texas/texas-reacts-health-care-ruling/

    Texas Public Policy Foundation President Brooke Rollins:

    “The fundamental question before the U.S. Supreme Court in this case was, if the federal government can force us to buy health insurance, what can’t it force us to do?

    Though the individual mandate was upheld under the taxation authority of the Congress, rather than the Commerce Clause, the net effect is the same: the Constitutional limits of federal power are now dangerously eroded.

    James Madison, the Father of the Constitution, argued passionately that in any constitutional republic, the transition to unrestrained majority rule is often an irrevocable step on the road to tyranny.

    Today’s ruling should be a wake-up call to all Americans: now more than ever, it is time to redouble our efforts to reclaim the proper sovereignty of states and citizens.”

    On the second major issue, the expansion of Medicaid, a majority of the Court ruled that the Congress overstepped its powers.

    Ruling the Medicaid expansion unconstitutional and stricken, Roberts stated that the Spending Clause has limits to protect the States as sovereigns.

    The ACA allowed the Federal government to withhold all Medicaid funding if a state refused to participate in the expansion of Medicaid to include all people earning less than 133% of the poverty rate.

    Roberts likened this to a Congressional “gun to the head” of the states, transforming Medicaid into a new universal system that goes beyond modifying the current Medicaid plan.

    The Court determined that the Federal government could withhold new Medicaid spending for failure to expand, but could not withhold money already promised for Medicaid as it existed before the ACA.

  26. rosettasister Says:

    … the 2,700 page ACA just lost 30 Million American’s it believed it had legislated guaranteed coverage for.

    What cannot be overlooked is the major victory by the states who challenged the ACA.

    What cannot be overlooked is the major victory by the states who challenged the ACA.

    The court said that the Obama administration cannot coerce states to go along with the Medicaid insurance program for low-income people.

    The financial pressure which the federal government puts on the states in the expansion of Medicaid “is a gun to the head,” Roberts wrote.

    “A State that opts out of the Affordable Care Act’s expansion in health care coverage thus stands to lose not merely ‘a relatively small percentage’ of its existing Medicaid funding, but all of it,” Roberts said.

    Congress cannot “penalize states that choose not to participate in that new program by taking away their existing Medicaid funding,” Roberts said.

    The Medicaid provision had been projected to add nearly 30 million more people to the insurance program for low-income Americans,

    but the court’s decision left states free to opt out of the expansion if they choose.

    How many, if any, states will volunteer to expand Medicaid coverage remains to be determined

    as the ACA’s cost to provide this additional coverage represents a major long-term liability to state budgets already facing shortfalls.

    What SCOTUS has effectively ruled is, the 2,700 page ACA

    whose annual price tag is estimated at full implementation of just under $2000 Billion annually

    just lost 30 Million American’s it believed it had legislated guaranteed coverage for.

  27. rosettasister Says:

    MSNBC called that ruling a “major victory for the states who challenged the law,” adding, that the provision “is projected to add nearly 30 million more people to the insurance program for low-income Americans—but the court’s decision left states free to opt out of the expansion if they choose.”

    “it is easier for the states to opt out”

    Supreme Court Curbs Health Reform Expansion of Medicaid

    http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/06/supreme-court-curbs-health-reform-expansion-of-medicaid/

    But what is interesting is that liberal justices like Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer joined the five conservatives to insist that the states couldn’t be threatened with a loss of funding.

    “Although many will be surprised that Chief Justice Roberts joined the Court’s progressive bloc to uphold the mandate, the far bigger surprise is that two members of that bloc-Justices Breyer and Kagan-joined the conservatives in holding that the Medicaid expansion exceeded Congress’s power,” says Stephen Vladeck, of American University Washington College of Law.”

    As a matter of precedent rather than politics, the Breyer and Kagan votes on Medicaid are likely to be far more significant going forward than the Roberts vote on the mandate,” he said.

    Paul Clement, an attorney for the states called this part of the ruling a “significant victory” he said.

    “The states will have a chance to make the choice. They will no longer have the gun to their head.”

    Renee M. Landers of Suffolk University Law school says the impact of today’s ruling, “could reduce the number of people who will be eligible for Medicaid because it is easier for the states to opt out.”

  32. rosettasister Says:

    http://hereandnow.wbur.org/2012/06/28/insurers-react-to-health-care-ruling

    Lets go back to that Medicaid issue because I’m assuming that could be key here, because that’s really how low-income people are going to get health insurance because of this ruling, which is rather nuanced about how states are going to participate. What happens, can states just opt out?

    The way Medicaid works right now is that there is a basic package of federal benefits and any state that wants to participate in Medicaid has to offer those benefits, and the federal government pays roughly fifty percent of the cost.

    What the Affordable Care Act said was those benefits have to be broader and the eligibility has to be broader or you [the states] lose all your Medicaid funding.

    What the majority of the court on this issue appears to have said is that you can’t coerce states that way by saying you’ll lose you current Medicaid participation if you don’t agree with the expansion.

    It’s going to be just as it was: those states that want to adopt broader coverage and broader eligibility may do so; others can stay with the more limited coverage.

  33. rosettasister Says:

    Rush Limbaugh suggests Obama will punish States which choose to opt out Medicaid Expansion

    http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2012/06/28/freedom_of_choice_meets_its_death_panel

    So the states can stay, “We don’t have the money. We’re not participating in this expansion, and you can’t take away what we’ve got.”

    If it happens like that, the people that end up being harmed are the very people running around today thinking that the result here is they’ve got free health care.

    How many of you people, in your office today, or wherever you happened to be when the ruling came down, how many of you people — I don’t know; could be zero — how many of you had somebody come up to you and say, “Does that mean health care is now free?”

    I guarantee you there are some who think that, that that’s what this means. That’s what they thought when it passed.

    They thought health care was free when it passed. Remember, we had the sound bites now. The Supreme Court’s affirmed it.

    “Wow, so now my health care’s really free.” I’ll tell you what, not only is it not free, you may not get any health insurance whatsoever.

    Now, the federal government has recourse if states do this.

    I call your attention to Colorado, which is burning alive, and one of the reasons why is that Obama has cut the budget necessary for a number of these tanker airplanes that drop chemicals on fires.

    Because the environmentalist wackos convinced Obama it was a waste of money. Once there’s a fire, let it burn. So people are being forced out of their houses.

    So let’s just say, to use a real world example here, say Colorado is a state that decides it’s not gonna participate in the Medicaid expansion, and the court said says, “They can’t be penalized for not doing so.

    Government cannot take their existing Medicare money away.”

    Well, in a situation like this, Obama could say, “Oh, your state’s on fire? Okay, well, I’ll take a look as I fly over on my way to California for a fundraiser.”

    In the case of, let’s say Louisiana, let’s say there’s another hurricane that goes through there, devastates part of the state.

    Let’s say Louisiana has not participated in the Medicare expansion.

    Obama can say, “Well, you know what? We don’t have anything for you. FEMA is too tied up.”

    So there are ways that with political payback, a guy like Obama can punish a state for not playing ball his way, and he’s shown that he will do so.

    Arizona is looking like a prime example of this right now.

    Arizona dared to stand up to The One, and now Arizona essentially has no border. Arizona has no way to stop.

    And all this is being done under the rubric of social justice.

    So what we get today with the Obamacare ruling is the largest tax in the history of the world is going to be paid by the uninsured, the very people Obama is supposed to help.

  34. rosettasister Says:

    http://theincidentaleconomist.com/wordpress/what-happens-if-a-state-refuses-to-expand-medicaid-ctd/

    So if a state decides to opt out of the expansion, that leaves folks under 100% likely exempt from the mandate, but with no access to federal subsidies.

  35. rosettasister Says:

    Why the Supreme Court Decision on Obamacare May Dramatically Increase the Deficit

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/aroy/2012/06/28/why-the-supreme-court-decision-on-obamacare-may-dramatically-increase-the-deficit/

    However, now that states can opt out of the law’s Medicaid expansion,

    states that currently cover people above 100 percent of FPL with Medicaid now have a significant financial incentive to shrink Medicaid eligibility down to 100 percent of FPL,

    and let the federal government (read: taxpayers in other states) pay for the rest.

    This, again, will lead to substantially higher costs for the federal government,

    because exchange subsidies are much more generous than Medicaid is.

    A countervailing aspect to the ruling is that, for states that have minimal Medicaid programs,

    many people below 100 percent of FPL may not get any insurance coverage at all, and

    the federal government pays for the majority of that spending under the Affordable Care Act.

    Expect the Congressional Budget Office to issue a report evaluating just this scenario very soon.

    That report will tell us a lot about how much the Supreme Court has changed the fiscal trajectory of Obamacare.

  36. rosettasister Says:

    some of the poorest Americans would be the ones who do not gain coverage

    The Supreme Court surprise: Medicaid ruling could reduce coverage

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/ezra-klein/wp/2012/06/28/the-supreme-court-surprise-medicaid-ruling-could-reduce-coverage/

    What we do know is this: If a state does not expand its Medicaid program, it would create a “donut hole” in insurance coverage for low-income Americans.

    The federal law was written with the assumption that all people living below the poverty line would become eligible for Medicaid. Federal subsidies, therefore, would be unavailable to anyone making less than that — even if the state opts out of the Medicaid expansion.

    That could mean that some of the poorest Americans would be the ones who do not gain coverage through the Affordable Care Act. ”It creates a no-man’s land,” Salo said.

    It’s hard to know how many people would fall into that area, largely because — as Salo puts it — “this was a total surprise. We weren’t studying it because it didn’t matter prior to today.” Going forward, however, this part of the Supreme Court decision could have a big impact on the Affordable Care Act’s future.

    Missouri House Budget Chairman Ryan Silvey said he expects most states will opt out of the expansion.

    But some states worry about the future costs to them, and Mississippi officials were quick to complain.

    They said the expansion would add almost 400,000 new enrollees and cost the state an estimated $1.7 billion over the next 10 years.

    “Mississippi taxpayers simply cannot afford that cost, so our state is not inclined to drastically expand Medicaid,” said Tate Reeves, Mississippi’s lieutenant governor.

    Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant, also a Republican, said: “Before I will make deep, draconian cuts in education and in transportation and workforce development, we will certainly seek opportunities that the state will have to reduce the welfare cost to Mississippians.”

    Similarly, Missouri House Budget Chairman Ryan Silvey said Missouri won’t take the federal money for expanding Medicaid.

    “I don’t see any chance of that happening,” he said in an interview with KHN.

    He said the state can’t afford to pay more than $100 million a year starting in 2017 to pay its portion of the coverage expansion.

    “It’s just not a sustainable option.”

    Silvey said he expects most states will opt out of the expansion.

    He said the Medicaid expansion would result in cuts in state spending on education and public safety.

    Let’s hear it for Pamm Larry. Last September, the self-described “grandmother from Chico” woke up one morning determined to do everything she could to get an initiative on the California ballot to label genetically engineered foods.

    And it only takes 51 – not 60 – votes in the Senate to pass (or repeal) a tax bill.

    Q: You mentioned the Swiss model. Is that a country Congress should look to as a role model?

    A: Yeah. They have universal coverage. They don’t have rationing, unlike the Brits in the UK. You can get transplants. You can get dialyzed.

    People who are sick get good health care in Switzerland and they spend 40 percent less as a percentage of GDP than we do.

    The reason is, the Swiss buy their own health insurance.

    Actually, Switzerland has no Medicare and has no Medicaid.
