Federal court expresses concern over health care reform law

(CNN) - A federal appeals court in Cincinnati expressed concern Wednesday over the sweeping health care reform law championed by President Barack Obama, especially the requirement that Americans purchase health insurance in coming years or face financial penalties.

The case could turn on either a broad reading of congressional power to regulate the health insurance market, or more mundane procedural issues. It is one of 30-some legal challenges nationwide to the health care reform effort, an issue that is certain to ultimately reach the Supreme Court, perhaps by year's end.

    What's wrong with making people get health insurance? Who doesn't want health insurance?

    What gets me is that ObamaCare is such a poorly thrown together program which has already increased the cost of insurance and doing nothing to increase the quality or efficiency. People are okay with that?!?! It's a huge drain on an already clobbered economy and a huge growth of federal government just when we need it to become less expensive.

    But I guess I will welcome any path to get it tossed out. We can do better. Much better.

    Seriously, why? We are required to have insurance for our cars in our state! And if we don't, you get fined (or sued if you're involved in a crash)! Why should health insurance be any different? You're doing a disservice to yourself and those around you (by driving up prices) if you don't!!
