    Just curious as to what you guys have thought. On paper it sounds pretty good, but I'm on the fence about it. s

    Simply put because penalizing the population for deciding not to buy a product is unamerican.

    It's basically a huge tax on the middle class.

    The majority of Obamacare isn't bad. The problem I have with it is that you're forcing people to spend money to buy insurance. Some people might not have the money, some people might not want it. And then they penalize you if you don't buy it. If they want it that bad, then make an amendment to the constitution allowing it, like they did with income tax. Otherwise, don't be unconstitutional and force us to do **** we don't want to do.

    The part I like is that all kids are still on their parents insurance until they're 25. Since I'm 22, I don't have to pay for insurance. :supergrin:

    Government does not have the means to pay for it.

    You do. They take your money to pay for it.

    That is called stealing and is wrong.

    I will add that it is more unwanted government in my life where the free market if allowed could come up with a better solution . All they would need to do is allow private competition across state lines.

    It is the ongoing battle of capitalism vs regulation

    We need socialized health care. It's as simple as that.

    Leave it to the states.

    What we don't need is socialized healthcare as proposed by Obama and his earmark masterpiece.

    Crazy talk is crazy.

    When is it OK to take my property and give it to someone else without compensation or agreement?

    well the way things work now is most people without insurance go to the ER for any and everything and then don't pay the bill, the cost is passed on to the people that do buy insurance. And the other bad side of how things work now is that if you don't have a job or your job does not provide insurance you have no viable option. No one is going to buy cobra at $800 per month. In those ways Obamacare will be better. It is not really the end of the world that so many around here claim it to be.

    Obamacare re defines full time as 120 hours a month, avergae 30 a week. Right now full time is 40. So, now a company will cap you below 40 hours, usually 36-38, a week. Under obamacare, youd get 10 less hours a week from employers capping you and 40 less a month. That type of lost income makes it impossible for many people to make a living. My company will be capping new employees if it goes through, so will grocery stores, wal marts, etc. Students, people who can only find part time work, etc, will need to work 2 jobs to make a living in most cases, good luck finding those in an obama economy.

    Oh that makes wonderful sense. As long as those crooked snakes can unravel their coils and point the same direction long enough to add an amendment to the constitution, anything they do is A-OK?

    I don't have insurance when I go to the doctor I pay my bill and usually get a 30-50% cash at the completion of appointment discount. Why should I be taxed because some dead beat doesn't pay.

    Anyone working part time jobs should automatically hate obamacare for the loss of income it would cause, while simultaneously raising taxes.
