Actually in the wonderful world of ObamaLand, (please keep you hands inside the ride until it comes to a complete stop), it makes perfect sense. See, the fine, as I understand it ,is $3800, thats oddly enough right around what a years worth of family insurance premiums runs me. As there is no way to pay for this they need every penny so what better way than to levy a fine that covers one premium without providing any benefit. Hey remember when Big O said if you like what you got you can keep it? I guess that didn't include the option of liking to not have any insurance. I think he might as well go ahead and grow the Hitler 'stache he's trying to start the Obama youth as we speak and now I just picture him pounding his fist on a lectern and screaming "You vill buy health insurance and you vill like it!!"That makes no sense whatsoever, just plain stupid.
It makes perfect sense, the poor bought into nobama's lies and now there going to get what they voted for, screwed again, just like the rest of us! I'm just so happy that we took the time to tell the government we didn't want this, there really getting the message now!!!That makes no sense whatsoever, just plain stupid.
Not always.Except you can avoid car insurance by not owning a car or drivers license. The only way out of this is to go TU.
Just because you cant make you house payments does not make my interest rate go up. I do see some merit in what you are saying but why do I have to pay for his misfortune rates should be based more on the condition of my family not on the condition of everyone I work with. While I believe that everyone should have to pay for medical, what is wrong with paying after the fact by setting them up with payroll deductions tell the bill is payed. Make people more accountable for there actions with out punishing the rest of us.it shouldn't be suprising. this is old news. Just like strangerous pointed out, they have done it in Mass. it is the only way to make a mandatory system work. i'm not saying whether i agree with it or not (i haven't made up my mind yet) but there is no other way to ensure that everyone is participating.
I don't like the idea of mandating insurance. But at the same time, if we allow people like ShooterZ to carry on without insurance, it ends up costing everyone more when people like that have heart attacks and can't pay their medical bills. I know, I know, its a tired argument that you all know, but still, I haven't heard anyone answer it with any intelligence.
