Skybill: Disappointed isn't the problem. It's the fu@#ing that the entire country is taking from this POS legislation that is the major issue.
Complete bullshit. A majority of Americans aren't even affected by the law. Only people who buy their own insurance or haven't had insurance are affected. The news this week is that 20 million people have now been covered by insurance through the ACA. Those people will live longer, be healthier, and/or avoid bankruptcy because of medical bills.
Will a few people who can afford to buy health insurance but simply refuse to be subject to a penalty? Sure. Congress has the constitutional power to levy a tax. In this case, though, it's unlikely most people who are subject to a penalty will ever have to pay it.
But just to be fair, I would hate this POS program no matter what President enacted it. The government has NO BUSINESS in my personal health care decisions.
And the ACA doesn't involve itself in your personal health care decisions. No one is forcing you to go to a doctor if you are sick, whether you have insurance or not.
You can be 1000% sure I'm rooting for ovomitcrap to fail.
Which means you are rooting for about 20 million Americans newly insured through the ACA to lose their insurance...and live shorter lives, go bankrupt due to medical bills, etc. Nice.
