The recent Supreme Court Decision upholding the Affordable Care Act has led to the nearly inevitable – and wholly irrelevant – discussion of “winners” and “losers.” Over the next few days, talking heads will ask the critical questions of our time:
“Who’s up? Who’s down?”
“Is this good for President Obama, or bad for Governor Romney?”
“Who lost? Who won?”
Over the next few weeks, there will be no shortage of legal analysis. There will be no shortage of political analysis. But there will be a disappointing lack of human analysis. But if one looks through the lens of healthy community, then one can see million of winners, especially here in California. And the state is stronger when every Californian has an opportunity to live a long, healthy life.
