Even the bronze plan is over my head. If I can't pay the fines, will a jail cell be my future?

looks like you'll have to run for the Senate. US Senators are exempt from Obamacare. Pat and Bernie are ready to retire.

It's affordable for everybody. Obama said so.....you must be incorrect. Go back and calculate again.

If you are really this stupid, I'd say it's a safe bet and will have nothing to do with the Affordable Care Act.

It looks like Obamacare may already be dying. Hordes of people are saying they will simply pay the fine. Those who want to sign up can't do it--the sign-up sites were all glitched up and had to be taken down.

When the sign-up does finally happen, I can foresee that many won't end up paying their premiums. The affordable care isn't so affordable after all! There are too many other bills competing for peoples' money in this tough, tough economy. The payments will slip,and the insurances will die.

Sign up for it right before you pay your taxes so you avoid the fine. Then after you do -drop it. Repeat as needed and then sign up again if you should need medical care when you get sick. The longest you will have to wait to sign up is 6 months.

Just because you are an ignorant ideologue doesn't mean other people are too. Does it? Answer carefully. Actually don't answer at all. That is what we usually get out of you.

You mean the "unaffordable care act" more commonly known as Obama's blunder.

Empathy is a commonly used, but poorly understood, concept. It is often confused with related concepts such as sympathy, pity, identification, and self-transposal. According to Edith Stein, a German phenomenologist, empathy can be facilitated. It also can be interrupted and blocked, but it cannot be forced to occur. What makes empathy unique, according to Stein, is that it happens to us; it is indirectly given to us,“nonprimordially.” When empathy occurs, we find ourselves experiencing it, rather than directly causing it to happen. This is the characteristic that makes the act of empathy unteachable. Instead, promoting attitudes and behaviors such as self-awareness, nonjudgmental positive regard for others, good listening skills, and self-confidence are suggested as important in the development of clinicians who will demonstrate an empathic willingness.
You are welcome.

People have cable TV, internet access, a cell phone and say they can't afford health insurance, priceless.

The fine, er, "tax" if you don't pay for Ostupidcare will be $95.
And if you get sick? Then tell Ostupidcare to cover you, that's all.
So far 25% of people who saw their premiums have decided to pay the "tax". One man saw his premium go from $545 to $971 per month. Another who makes $11,000 a year will have a premium of $175 a month. That's 18% of his income. He's opting out and will pay the "tax".
anyone who makes $11,000 gets Medicaid for free. America sure is full of retarded people, evidently spending money to try and educate them to figure out simple things is a waste of money and the school system is defrauding the taxpayers promoting retards past the 6th grade.

"empathy can be facilitated... it cannot be forced to occur"

-but sometimes it behooves us to have some
we better find some empathy for those in Japan enough to help them stop the DirtyBombs from fissioning out of control any more than they have lest we suffer megacancers along with them!

empathy does mean charity for the poor, mercy for criminals, or appeasement of foreign enemies

Obama, Unsurprisingly, Gets Ayn Rand Wrong
http://www.theobjectivestandard.com/blog/inde...
^"What does Obama seek in maligning Rand and misrepresenting her views? Obama wishes to perpetrate the fraud that, in order to collaborate with and care for other people, we must buy into Obama’s collectivist vision of forced wealth transfers, government-run industries, massives doses of corporate welfare, and an ever-expanding entitlement state."

'can't afford it' means different things to different people.
If you can't find a policy for less than 8 percent of your income, you are not required to buy a policy or pay a penalty.
