When the Supreme Court Hands Down Their Decision, Doctors Won't Care

It seems like everyone whose anyone is betting on not only what the Supreme Court will decide about the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Accountable Care Act, but when.

Everyone that is, except doctors.

That's because most doctors I know suspect the announcement will be made on Friday of this week.

That's because employers choose Friday to fire someone because it disrupts the workplace the least.  It keeps the negative chatter to a minimum as the employee's desk is emptied.  And since the law was conceived and executed almost entirely by Big Business, most doctors I know are betting that Friday will be the day. 

Perhaps more importantly, for doctors it really does't matter what the Supreme Court decides. 

That's because the day after the decision (whatever it is), doctors will still get up, go to their clinics or hospitals, wash their hands, and continue taking care of patients, whether there's a health care law, part of a health care law, or no health care law.

Big business knows this, so should you.

Well said and all too true. And for that I would think that the various elderly and sedentary members of the Supreme Court would be thankful. As are we all.

I'm glad to know the doctors are going to be ok. Can you also assure me that those who are ill and need hospitalization and are without health insurance will also be ok?
