No one is forcing him "at gun point" to buy anything and he certainly isn't paying for the insurance of others. That's not in his nature.

Where will oBamacare get the money to pay for these people?
It's an attempt to lower the cost by requiring everyone to get coverage. Currently, too many younger/healthier folks don't have health insurance. If they come into the system, the ratio of premium paid vs. claims paid will drop. If the ratio drops, health insurance will be cheaper and more folks on Medicaid will be able to afford private insurance.

Haven't you every carried health insurance? IF someone actually NEEDS has an emergency, they can go to the nearest hospital and their insurance will cover the cost.
...or they can simply pay the bills with all the insurance premium money they have saved and invested over the years...

Rationing is the key problem in countries with socialized medicine.
Liberals think it's going to be different here even with a population of over 300 million.
They think government running our health care instead of running the military and the treasury is the best thing since sliced bread.
They must love going to the DMV.
Because we all know that government is the best at running things lol!

It resulted in early detection which prevented my disease from spreading and allowed me to be cancer free. That is good enough for me. One of the number one preventive measures someone can take to avoid illness is STOP SMOKING yet some people on here just don't care about their health.

the hard truth is that early diagnosis of some cancers just increases the cost of treatment and prolongs the agony of death...in other cases lives are saved, so a mixed bag...
certainly you realize thousands of women were diagnosed with stage ZERO breast cancer and were 'so-called' saved, never needed surgery and had no cancer at all. But they count them as been saved. It is one of the biggest hoaxes perpetrated by the Cancer loving society.

And not only that the 'preventive' medicine of testing did more harm than good. The mammograms actually cause cancer. And some of these stupid broads have them done every 6 months. Are they glowing from all the radiation?

<quoted text>That one is a vegan with a small brain--and cancer. Remember when all the 'fat free' food crap started in the 90's? What better way to cause cancer than with fat free 'sugar'--feeding the candida which in turn leads to cancer-over 99% of the people diagnosed with cancer are full of it. Cholesterol medicine is now causing dementia and diabetes. Americans are stupid when it comes to health and doctors. I hate them. The only thing western doctors are good for in my opinion are repairs and trauma. Certainly they are 'curing' anything.
And it is illegal for anyone but an oncologist to treat cancer.

Disgusting, I had a similar experience although much worse.
Fortunately we all have the same alternative doctor-he knew the law and came to the hospital immediately with the corporate attorneys we have on call 24-7--then the police were called by the attorneys. It was like a stand off--stupid doctor blocking him from taking his baby. It was like being criminals. That is what liberals want though, isn't it? a nation of criminals.

You guys don't get it. Obamacare is the government admitting they don't know how to run a health insurance co. that's why the law requires everyone to purchase coverage from Humana, BC/BS, Aetna, etc

No one should buy O'bamacare, if anyone gets sick they can pay for the wrecked car to be fixed the next day. They can't refuse 'pre-existing' conditions. ROTFLMAO. Certainly you are not funding anyone. You are sick and so is your medicated for life husband yeah--with his pace-maker.

So what was prevented. ROTFLMAO.
Listening to those voices in your head again I see. My brother is a U.S. veteran on 100% VA disability as a result of his service in Vietnam. It happens.

My adopted daughter is not in any "state run institute". She lives in her own home with a housekeeper and is more sane than you are.

As far as me and my husband are concerned. We are healthier than you. Coughing yet?

Exactly--in this country. So there are only 'approved' treatments for cancer-mutilation and chemical cocktails. The United States is far behind the rest of the world.

My case cps/dcf was called and they kidnapped the child, luckily we had a fair judge and the only starved the baby of her mothers breast milf for 28 hours.
Didn't stop them for being vindictive and filing a petition for neglect which was dropped after 6 months.
I sued them in their private capacities pro se, as well as the hospital.
