Yes, it demonstrates the unpopularity of the program to the cretins in America. The lack of enrollment by these people will NOT increase the program deficit. It MAY increase costs for those who are insured because the more that enroll the lower the costs but it won't affect the funding.<quoted text>
That is one school of thought.
The other is that very few will enroll unless forced to, demonstrating the unpopularity of the program, and the lack of enrollment by those who don't need medical care will increase the program deficit.
The only way someone who doesn't obtain health insurance affects funding of the Affordable Care Act is with the payment of penalties...that actually increases the programs surplus.
