Can't wait for the gop to fall over backwards when they do nothing to this law after screaming at the top of their lungs about it.
They work for the same interests and once this cash cow got put in place it isn't going anywhere

From the stories I hear, paying the fine for many years and paying out-of-pocket for any actual doctor's visits will still be MUCH more affordable than the deductibles people have; they're winning either way. Either the insurance companies get your $, or the government gets your $ through the fines. It's a win-win situation for them.
Having lived in countries with socialized medicine, I can honestly say Obama-care doesn't even live in the same ball park. Obama-care is nothing more than a federally mandated extortion racket by the medical industrial complex. It did not aim to make healthcare universal, but force people to buy something they couldn't afford in the first place.
Obamacare did nothing to address the real problems with healthcare in this country: ridiculously sky high costs beyond the reach of most people, the influence of big pharma and the over-medication of America, and the problem with the declining health in this country. You didn't need an idiot Like Ted Cruz to point this out.
The Only reason it made it past congress is because congress if full of out of touch morons getting paid by lobbyists to pass it.
