Re: “It's time to scrap the Affordable Care Act and start over

The article has some of the same problems as the law it critiques. It lacks focus and leaves a bad taste with some of its extraneous details. Perhaps a rewrite is in order. First please explain whats wrong with our healthcare?
Lets examine our current choices. We have the worlds largest tax funded healthcare system but wisely restrict it to grandma an grandpa as surly they enjoy all those lovely high tech "procedures" in their last few weeks.This is of course hugely expensive but who wants to die undisturbed in their own bed?
We take more pills than a dog would swallow even if wrapped in bacon. They cost a bundle but in other countries those poor folk don't get our great drug company advertisements for entertainment so they gotta read books an exercise to kill time! My dog prefers his pills with cheese and because he has a better health plan than most third world children its "covered". I wonder what web-site he uses?
Our budget for ""diet" foods probably exceeds what most countries can spend on real food. We could of course just eat less and park a bit farther away from the front door of the supermarket and walk but what fun is that?
What we spend on "male enhancement" treatments would probably cover a worldwide vaccination program and prevent future epidemics. Who wants to make a hard choice?
Then tell me just how a website or another obama-care package is gonna fix this. Perhaps we just prefer Canadian style bacon to Canadian style health care?

Re: “Why is S.C. Supreme Court not following law on timely court decisions?

I agree with the comment about the complex nature of appeals and the time required to get a quality decision. There is however an important question raised in the article. Do government officials have the right to ignore the laws? If we cannot expect our courts to follow the law why then should we expect a decision to be just or valid? Public confidence in government is too important. If this rule is obsolete or incompatible with current demands then address it head on. Change the rule or rework the process but don't just ignore it. The rule of law is too fragile
