    TimeTraveleer2 is correct and I have done several hubs on this. I am 62 and cannot buy real health insurance for prior conditions. I just hat two back-to-back hospital stays. I am looking at $20,000 out of pocket. Obamacare cannot come soon enough.

    I heard that people who don't buy that insurance will be fined. Is this true? I heard they will take money from our tax returns.

    Well you are correct, however, when the government requires someone to purchase a good or service from them, it is illegal, Obama got by the SC by calling it a Tax, but you are still required to spend your money on something the government is selling

    LOL...that's funny, but hey! Why not? If they are going to force us to pay for something we may not want, why not this as well?

    See, this is sort of my issue as well. Who has the right to say what is affordable for me or not? You don't know what my life is, or my bills for that matter. Just because I don't have insurance currently, does not mean I'm a free loader.

    This is the same issue that tear me up on the piece of legislation. I suppose if I am forced to buy insurance, I will need a doctor to treat me for starvation! We are people who use the medicine God gave us from the land in a natural way.

    nonsense - the fine is about $700 - most health insurance costs much more than that; your description of losing your house is just silly. the people who refuse to get insurance are freeloaders, and we all pay when they show up at the ER
