My opposition to that is many-fold... many jobs these days don't offer benefits... people who have "pre-existing" conditions could rarely get any kind of healthcare that was even remotely affordable... glad you think children without insurance should go out and get a job, the lazy moochers... then there is the unemployed... women (and men for that matter) who lose their insurance because of divorce, or a death of a spouse... or the elderly, who are left with only medicaid/care that doesn't really cover their medical needs... etc.
Instead of telling people to get a job... why don't you get a clue.. and maybe a shred of empathy... you'll be a better person for it.

I had Obamacare for a year and it was cheap, 50 a month, but when I started making over 50,000 a year, it went up to 532 a month and I had to cancel. It has its perks for some people but if You make under 12,000 a year then I don't think You can get it. It did help my friend out bigtime, I signed him up and he had a major heart attack the next month. His medicine and everything was taken care of, then they cancelled it because he couldn't work and didn't make his 12000 bucks.
