How bout that?

I must say I was surprised by today's Supreme Court decision (see yesterday's post here). I am a little concerned about the Medicaid part of the decision, in which the court said the expansion was constitutional but the feds couldn't withhold Medicaid funding from states that refuse to enroll more people. This could give states the ability to weasel out of what to me is a key piece of reform.

In other words, Medicaid expansion is the real public option.

Still and all, pretty cool.

Yep, pretty cool. I wasn't expecting this.
