To those do not have health insurance, were you fined? Do you believe that it is insidiously
unfair to be mandated to sign up for health insurance?
My husband.and I don't our kids do we were fined 250.
I don't agree with the forced decision of healthcare.
That is horrendous-a $250.00 fine. We are indeed living in a dictatorship. I wonder where does the money go? As if the government is financially prudent the way it spends money on nonsensical research, really now!
My wife and I have health insurance through her job and we never received any kind of fine. And I think the mandate is so often maligned because people are thinking of it in terms of healthcare costs pre-Obamacare. Anyone who has ever had health insurance will speak to the outrageous pricing system, so mandating that everyone pay that amount definitely sounds unfair and insidious. But it doesn't take into account subsidies (the government pays what you can't) nor does it take into account the lowered rates in larger pools of clients. The system is by no means perfect, and there are still growing pains, but the mandate is a far cry from the freedom-ruining monster its opponents claimed it to be.

Do you believe that the nuisance known as Obamacare will finally be repealed? Why? Why not?I believe that the government SHOULD NOT be in private affairs such as health care. I believe that health care is the sole responsibility of the individual. If individuals want health care,...
