How do you feel about being fined for no health insurance while you pay for other's free insurance?
It's an unacceptable arrangement, and to boot it's unconstitutional - despite what the SCOTUS ruled.
Nobody gets free insurance! Even People on Medicare pay high premiums for our health insurance.
Its time to sour the government sugar teat. No tax money should be going for healthcare. Someone making 25k in prvt sector w/o benefits should not be forced to subsidize a gov empl.making 75K
I agree, but consider that while illegal immigrants don't get free insurance they do get free education, and free medical care and they don't have to pay a penalty to the iRS for not having insurance. just a thought.
I make too much money to qualify for Medicaid, but not enough to qualify for Obama care so I have no health insurance until I reach 65. At that time I will pay a premium and a co-pay. I do not mind paying taxes for Medicaid to help low-income people, I only wish there was something affordable for us middle of the road older folks. I do not think it is fair to fine those of us that are stuck without the ability to afford high medical insurance costs. I also think it is unfair to fine people who choose NOT to have medical insurance because of their belief in alternative medicine. Medical insurance should be an affordable option, not something forced on us by the government!

Why are some people so eager to take away healthcare for people with pre-existing conditions?
by Grace Marguerite Williams 10 months ago
Do you believe that the nuisance known as Obamacare will finally be repealed?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,...
