I'm sure we can all agree that most of the people on or around the poverty line are the ones without insurance. This is just wrong, you can't go try to collect money from people who don't have any in the first place. Way to piss people off.
Like I said people have limits and they are screwing with the most chaotic group of people with not much to lose. They are telling people that because they are poor, they have to pay a tax. Wrong move.

I think some of you guys are missing the point. This is a HUGE human rights victory. Giving everyone right to health care is far more important than any petty squabbles we have with the current or past administrations.

It is a tax I will never pay. Ever. Period end of discussion. I am not being forced to buy something. I will fight it with all my being. I asked over and over and I will ask again here, what document do those bozos read from? It can't be the constitution unless they have a different one than I do. Those "justices" need to tarred and feathered. TODAY. This cannot stand. It just can't. They do not have the right to tell me what I have to buy. No court can give them that right. No matter what. I'd rather go to jail.

This is how they want you to think when actually, Health care cost are up because health care companies lobby congress to pass bills in their favor. The reason health care and meds are so high is not because it cost so much to make but it is because they "can" rip you the public off, Thats why people go across the border to get meds. Same way with the oil companies, look at the price of gas right now, it was higher than this the past two years during the summer but, why is it going down right now? Because their is a presidential race going on and big oil wants their man to win so, dropping oil prices makes him look good. Grab a book on public policy and you'll be amazed at whats inside.
