ON WHAT HAPPENED IN TAHRIR SQUARE:
Smith: “Men started ripping off all my clothes. First of all, it was my skirt, and that just went straight away, and I didn’t even feel my underwear being removed. Then my shoes went and clothes on my upper half were just being ripped off me, and that was quite painful.”
Smith: “I was just in this weird, detached state of mind, and I just kept saying, ‘Please God, please make it stop. Please, God, make it stop.’ ”
Former Medicare and Medicaid Administrator Donald Berwick, MD, and former Swiss President Ruth Dreifuss will join Christiane Amanpour for the Thursday, June 28th edition of the program. Dr. Berwick served in his capacity for the Obama Administration shortly following passage of the Affordable Health Care for America Act (aka, "Obamacare") and will discuss what today's ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court means for American health care consumers.
While Ruth Dreifuss served as on the Swiss Federal Council, the Swiss government instituted an individual mandate for private health insurance for its citizens. She will discuss her nation's experience with that policy since its implementation in 1996, on today's AMANPOUR.
AMANPOUR airs weekdays on CNN International at 3:00pm with a replay at 5:00pm Eastern in the U.S., and at 21:00 with a replay at 23:00 CET, in Central Europe.
"In his opinion, Chief Justice Roberts initially said that the individual mandate was not a valid exercise of Congressional power under the Commerce Clause. CNN reported that fact, but then wrongly reported that therefore the court struck down the mandate as unconstitutional. However, that was not the whole of the Court’s ruling. CNN regrets that it didn't wait to report out the full and complete opinion regarding the mandate. We made a correction within a few minutes and apologize for the error."
