You might want to discuss that #1 with John Adams and the rest of The Founders who established an individual mandate soon after establishing The Constitution? 1798, so it would be fresh in their minds eh? Oh and that mandated health coverage fee supported federally built, operated and payed for healthcare establishments. So given The Founders knew their creation one can forecast strict constructionists of The Constitution would disagree with you as well. Agreeing instead...
Take out just pre-existing conditions and the health insurance costs explode: people waiting until they are diagnosed and then signing up.... the underlying reasoning behind the Heritage Foundation and Mitt Romney crafting the their personal responsibility mandate. Looking to not further break the foundation of insurance: shared risk.
Those VeriFone terminals seem to be the indicator: I've seen those appear in a couple of chains I use and then Apple Pay is a go.
"and then to hide the bill until"   Now that's close to an outright misstatement: I downloaded and read multiple public drafts of the legislation in publicly available pdf files  over the months the House and Senate modified and crafted the two bills.   ​Anyone who was interested had to expend close to zero effort to snag a copy for their own reading. Anyone who didn't was just being lazy or just didn't care.   One of those Republican talking points that fails at...
That quote, and the post, wasn't about the ACA: while my post a couple up was, and that one supports the legislation as I do in general. 
"illegal act"   How so? The Supreme Court has disagreed on the one facet that got to them for instance, the 'personal responsibility mandate' as the Heritage Foundation and Mitt Romney termed it....   ​As to mandating a fee supported, federally collected fee (for federally build and managed healthcare in the first case)? That was established as Constitutional when the people who wrote the Constitution established such a system for merchant sailors in the 1790's: If...
I agree: I'm often pointing out that while our procedures do cost more than in many other places what undoubtedly builds a floor in medical care cost reduction is the challenge that we ARE just that sick a nation: there's studies that have been referenced showing something like 80% of medical expenditures are for the treatment of chronic, largely lifestyle related diseases... search for Big Food vs. Big InsuranceBy Michael PollanThe New York Times, September 10, 2009He's...
To give the guy the benefit of the doubt he's conflating retail medical care (tracking my own activity will give me immediate health benefits) versus wholesale (Obamacare's efforts and improving outcomes, making preventive care more accessible and eliminating pre-existing condition bans etc. will improve overall population health: but won't directly impact my sitting on my butt at my desk all day long...).   On the subtle side the Researchkit communication available to...
Ah that makes sense: like back in the day when some browsers were notorious hard drive killers (cough, Netscape, cough) for that very reason: constantly messing with caches on the drive and then when they crashed the write dribbled gibberish all over the disk, and as you say the usual suspect in a write abort is scrambling the index.... So may be a "flaw" in Photos if it's maniacal about keeping a temp backup or something on the drive.... writing opening that window of...
Being their own hard act to follow has a certain reality to it....
