I agree! Forcing someone to purchase health coverage or be penalized is nothing more than pure communism.

This law is going to do nothing but put additional strains on our health care systems. Cost are going to rise, Wait times are going to increase (as if 3+ hours isn't bad enough), and taxes are going to go through the roof.

you are so right. Not to mention the quality of care will decline.

Now you get to pay out even more for ObamaCare. One should cancel out the other one, right?. Some bad decisions deserve more bad decisions, is that how it works?.

I don't like paying for the two stupid wars any more than you do, so where is the logic in contributing even more for wasteful spending? The end result is taxpayers being robbed and made even poorer.

But if I choose a cell phone, booze, drugs or other items that takes away my ability to afford health insurance you should pay?

The fact is that alot of these folks already show up in the ER, get treated and have their surgery. What you may not know is that the state pays for this and you pay the difference through your private insurance. Medicaid, Medicare or unreimbursed indigent does not pay what it costs to run a healthcare facility. The Humana's and Anthem's pay about double what the govt pays.

The true shame is the person with insurance that can't come up with the $2K out of pocket and therefore doesn't have the surgery.

Sure the gov. will help you on small things like a cold but, if you require a 10,000 dollar surgery then, bye bye! I have seen it happen to a few people and, it is a disgrace and, a huge shame!

Same old worn out liberal strawman argument. Healthcare is not a right to be paid for with a theft by force Obama wealth redistribution scheme.

It's easy to point out negatives, when one size can't fit all. Allow me to point one in your direction. Tell me how a free market can work, when products "forced by law" are given free. That's the broken health care plan America has been living by. If the conservatives don't like Obama's new approach "fine", do something, and make it better. In all honesty, conservatives claim to be free market enthusiasts. Fine, repeal free health care without payment. Watch all the conservatives without health insurance start scrambling. LOL.

ObamaCare is code for socialized, rationed, euro style health care which will be granted according to political consideration. ObamaCare needs to be killed and replaced before it is too late, and this country descends into euro style government controlled socialized health care hell.
