Obama adheres to a Communist ideology, which has always been parasitic. That ideology takes the advancements and successes of an exceptional, Christian America and uses them for profits ending up in the pockets of Communist politicians. They have set up government run medical services to double bill and use unnecessary surgeries, treatments and counterproductive, contraindicated drugs to enrich people like the Obamas from Chicago hospitals, which use the advancements freely given from Christian charities to expand their own thieving networks of entrapping gullible Americans. Now, the Leftists want to continue using the advancements provided freely, while destroying the very charities giving them opportunity to be the parasitic slimeballs they are.

and everyone will say Mitt hates the middle class based on something (they think) he SAID...

yet they will ignore that Obama wants the poor covered on the backs of the middle class which is evident by Obama's ACTIONS...

I really wish this election could be about what the candidates actually meant instead of what we pretend they said and then attack...this goes juts as much for "you didn't build that" as it does for the "47%".

now watch both sides pretend their own tact is different and more justifiable...

Obama DIDN'T say business owners didn't build their business and Romney DIDN'T say the 47% who pay no taxes wont vote for him...
both idiots say enough things worth attacking that we don't need to MAKE THEM UP!

It will be debated until the end of time, whether it is better to do the wrong thing for the right reasons, or the right thing for the wrong reasons.

The mandate will hit the middle class or what's left of it. Many are still in the "middle" class because they learned how to budget. That means they learned how to prioritize including questions/decisions like do we pay the mortgage and keep our roof(immediate need) or do we pay an insurance premium for something that might happen.

There are some that are cheap skates but they are many living off savings, investments, reduced salaries, multiple jobs and budgeting/shopping skills. They must plot out there financal life extremely carefully in this economy.

Also many in the so called middle class realize the value of maintaining good credit so that means car payments, mortgage, rent, utility bills get priority over INSURANCE premiums. That means getting a repair to keep the house livable day to day gets priority over an INSURANCE premium. That means keeping the car running to get to work and/or go shop for the best price.

Yeh the medical care industry would love everybody to have INSURANCE or a third party payer system so they keep the inflated billing structure they got accustomed to and were indoctrinated with over the last several decades. But like everyone else they must learn to live off a reduced fee just like the individual has learned to live off reduced pay, investment losses, contract concessions etc. If Jay Leno can take a paycut to save his staff and show so can the medical care industry. Just like the individual is NOT entitled to medical care the medical care industry is entitled to inflated fees.
