One of the main reasons President Obama gave for enacting an individual mandate in the new health care laws was to shield responsible citizens from indirectly paying for huge medical bills piled up by the uninsured.
But the Galen Institute and several other public policy firms have filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court explaining why they believe the health care laws do not solve the "free-rider" problems and actually make them worse.
"We all know this law is a monstrous violation of the Constitution in so many ways, but the court takes these arguments apart in a very specific way," Grace-Marie Turner, president of the Galen Institute, tells WND.
She explains why the new law is not a solution but a giant shell game. Turner also tells us how the problem would be worse even if everyone was required to have coverage. And she details why this brief should be very persuasive to the high court.
