Without mandate, it is no longer Obamacare.
When I was in about 4 in kindergarten kids used to say "I know you are, but what am I?" when responding to being called a name they didn't like. The democrats and Obamacare discussion is strikingly similar.
The mandate was the source of revenue for subsidies for low income.
Yeah. I was listening to callers on cspan this morning. The stockholders, investors, and retirees are very happy with their portfolios.
Like mandating car insurance, more participation, more money, cheaper rates.
Neither way is good because subsidies for low income is just another term for redistribution of income which is socialist and more money to the insurance companies who are in bed with government is fascist.... the bureaucracy and regulations is nanny state totalitarianism which is also fascist. Another term for this is "public-private partnership" which is a term right out of ascends 21 which is an apparatus of the One World Government.

The mandate was the source of revenue for subsidies for low income. So of course next year they will choose not to participate. Then the main purpose of ACA will be null.
Medicare for all.
