Its a violation of the 10th Amendment. The Federal Government does NOT have the right to force anyone to buy Health Insurance.
10-13 States are filing suit. More will jump on board.
Your elected officials did NOT vote the way of the people they represent. If they had, this bill would never have made it.
Their will be a huge change in the House and Senate over this.

Hey Genius, how about moving?
You're local conservative government appears to have failed you. Move to a city where you can take advantage of programs that will help you get on your feet and back into the workforce where you can be a productive member of society instead of a bum.
You see, the people are the strength of America. If We the People are taken care of it makes the country stronger. It even increases Patriotism and national pride.
I think it is a better approach than the conservative way of artificial Patriotism achieved with un-necessary Wars and conflict. The short term gains in Patriotism / Nationalism turn to remorse and shame in the long run. It truly is Constructive Government vs Destructive Government.

I am barely making my car insurance, I can barely purchase food, and barely making payments for storage so what few belongings I own are not tossed into the street.
I do not own house, I am living out of my car, evicted due to lack of funds.

It makes me laugh when people post things like the OP.
The government passes things DAILY that a large portion of the country don't like.
There is ANOTHER SIDE TO THE VIEW DON'T YOU KNOW?

Seems you are real hung up on things and money. I think that is where the problem really lies.
I for one do not want the streets of America to look like Calcutta India. Apparently you do, and I can only guess to make you feel more like a man? I dunno.
How about we invest in our people. Make Education free (if you get the grades) like Canada does. will a smarter populace make us weaker? I don't think so.
I don't think a single WHITE MAN who helped form this Nation had the insight to see the diversity, nor the nature of our society today. No one can see into the future. These were intelligent men who would never expect us to hold on to every word of theirs in the face of social change.
We can evolve as a country and retain our core values. And anyone who would jeopardize our future over an abstraction like money is a fool. Currency will not always be there. There is a brave new world coming. Its not meant for us, or our children, but for our Great Great grandchildren.
