Let me get this straight ...
We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don't! Which purportedly covers at least ten million more people without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that didn't read it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a Dumbo President who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, for which we'll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese , and financed by a country that's broke!!!!!

'What the hell could possibly go wrong?'~~ Donald Trump .

Typical Faux news viewer. Instead of reading, you parrot the Fox talking points. And then you quote Donald Trump.

unless you read the entire thing yourself, all the information you find will be biased, one way or the other. since it's already been upheld, there's no use in complaining, so how about we wait and see how it will really affect us, since no one really seems to know. if it sucks as bad as you think it will, then complain about it.

that said, our healthcare system has been awful for years. it's about time we tried something new. if it fails, it fails, if it doesn't, hooray.

I agree the old system was broken and a new approach is needed. My concerns are how little the people involved in the passing of this bill really understand about it. Cost wise , I feel we are already paying for it anyway. This bill represents the same old party line politics, which has this country in the mess it is now. As you said however, it has been upheld so we may as well see what shape it forms. Strangely with all the complaining you would think this was the only economic issue this country faced.

If your income is under approx $28,000 you will pay $695 per adult per year not to have insurance and then there will still be the medical bills. We still don't know how much insurance will be per month if you buy it but I bet it won't be cheap. But we do know as far as medicaid goes adults don't qualify if they make over 4,800 per year gross if they are working. They will be requiring proof on your tax return. There is another problem.
I forsee more people quitting work and going on government assistance because they won't get a tax return anymore and can't afford the penalty. I also see even more tax fraud coming to make your fee less on the tax return and even more people that simply won't file one. This still doesn't take care of the ones that don't work or work under the table and still don't have insurance. It also does not address children's insurance.

exactly. you don't hear nearly as many complaints about the TRILLIONS of dollars spent on warfare, or the salaries of governments officials, or COUNTLESS other issues. This is a healthcare issue, intended to help people, and all i'm hearing is "it's horeshit, it'll cost too much." really?
