It’s a tough call, and it’s what made today’s Supreme Court argument so fascinating.

The Texas Observer is known for its fiercely independent, uncompromising work — which we are pleased to provide to the public at no charge in this space.

Medical and productivity costs saved from helmet use are estimated to be $1,316,469.58per fatality, $186,434.37per serious injury, and $8166.06per minor injury (inflation adjusted to current year) [10].

The public must also pay for higher insurance rates, increased taxes, and lost tax revenue [11].

By maintaining the private insurance system and by refusing to implement a public option, the designers of the law had little choice but to require all Americans to buy insurance.

We’ve been forced to decide which principle is more important: basic civil liberties and freedom from government telling you what to buy or providing health care to tens of millions.

Additional medical charges include hospital readmissions, professional fees, ambulatory care services, rehabilitation, and long-term nursing home care.Regardless, if this increase in deaths is due to the increasing numbers of motorcyclists or if it represents an increased fatality rate, the number of deaths itself is large and therefore important.Motorcycles account for less than 3 % of all registered vehicles nationwide, yet they constitute 14 % of all traffic-related fatalities [4].Others see government overreach—an unprecedented intrusion on individual liberties that can’t be justified no matter how many more people gain health insurance as a result. But if the court does strike down the mandate, we also may lose the most popular provisions in the law such as the ban on denying coverage due to pre-existing conditions and allowing dependents to remain on their parents’ plans up to age 26.No matter what you think of it, the mandate does set a dangerous precedent. The insurance industry accepted these provisions in exchange for the mandate.

As I wrote more than two years ago when Congress was debating the mandate: “What items in your life does the government require you to purchase from a private company? The industry claims it can’t afford to insure people with pre-existing conditions without the added revenue from the many new customers the mandate would deliver.
