That will be little comfort to those with serious illnesses who require top-quality treatment, or to those who must travel long distances because their local hospital is not included, or to those who will need to change physicians.

If you don't own a car, why do you need auto insurance? Register a car "non-op" and you don't need auto insurance. I know farmers who have old beat-up trucks that are only operated on the farm, they aren't even registered, let alone insured.

Comparing health insurance to auto insurance is stupid.

<quoted text>It's a good law, the Democrats just did a lousy job at selling it. Of course healthcare reform is a tough sell to begin with, boooorrring. And with Republicans and their mouthpiece at Fox News whining and bitching and mis-informing every step of the way it's no wonder the confusion and hatred towards it.
When a person finds that they cannot use a doctor that they have trusted for many years, or cannot use the best local hospital...no amount of "selling" will work.

And if Homer thinks this doesn't apply to him because he has employer-sponsored insurance, that will disappear within a very few years.

You are obviously one of leos students

From my link:
"In 2005, the Mexican government published a "Guide for the Mexican Migrant" — in comic book form. The pictographic manual instructed its own citizens how best to cross illegally into, and stay within, the United States."

Your illiteracy is going beyond funny. Please tell me you're not old enough to vote.

This is a poorly written sentence, and probably deliberately so, because it fails to state what the rates were lowered by 25% in comparison to.

Are the rates 25% lower than what the same individuals are now paying, or 25% lower than the exchange rates would have been if they included the better doctors and hospitals?

A lot of boomers left the workforce early for myriad reasons some of which carried big time going away checks__buyouts__etc, and then quickly reentered the workforce is lesser capacities, civic-nonprofit roles and as the self employed.
Imagine companies buying jobs back from long time-highly paid (vested) employees and giving them to low wage beginners or shipping them overseas. It happened__and often quality improved.
Professionals who were laid off before retirement would not agree with you.

Some states, California included, do not require auto insurance, just proof of financial responsibility.

Besides, the auto insurance minimums mandated by law are totally inadequate and virtually meaningless.

Your brain is non-op. Evidently Eman doesn't think he has a body. The funny part is that Eman likely has insurance as do all the dumbss right whiners b*tching about the mandate.

BTW, farm vehicles are covered under the farm policy.

How can there be a "closing" without the money changing hands?
Closings without money or with escrow occur daily dumbass. A few weeks ago I closed on a piece of land with $ to follow only upon the issuance of a uncontested demolition permit.

So basically, they excluded everyone but the wal-marts of the healthcare world in their exchange policy (and still didn't get close to the national average).

As galt has sasked many times on here, do the citizens realize they are not getting the same policies offered to non exchange customers?

If we were to compare auto insurance to health insurance, we would only need a health policy if we were to visit a medical provider. Actually, under the ACA, that's allowed.
