    the uninsured--those whom the Affordable Care Act was supposed to benefit--as "free riders." Pelosi, speaking to Audie Cornish of National Public Radio, explained that new taxes were necessary because some (many?) of the uninsured actively choose not to buy health insurance, even though they can afford it.

    SO who are these "free riders"?? People according to Pelosi that CHOOSE not to buy though they can afford it! Fact is 17.5 million are under 34, make $50k+ and choose NOT to spend money on health insurance.

    BUT what do they do when they get sick? Do they NOT pay? I'm sure a few don't!
    BUT MOST pay out of their pocket. Owe the physician/hospitals NOTHING!

    So what is then the purpose of INCLUDING THEM in the ranks of the UNINSURED?
    As the 10 million who are counted uninsured but AREN"T CITIZENS and 14 million that ARE Covered by Medicaid but ARE wrongly counted as "uninsured"!
    SO ACA was passed because MOST people thought there were 47 million to 50 million!

    So if Pelosi passed the bill because she counted the 17.5 million who she NOW calls derisively "free loaders"... People SHE claims are using health care without paying for it!
    WHICH IS A TOTAL LIE!

    People you can't have it both ways!
    Either there aren't 50 million uninsured or the 17.5 million are not free loaders!
    Either it is a TAX which would have NEVER passed if some that voted thought it was a tax!
    OR it isn't and yet SCOTUS declared it a TAX so those that voted for it were defrauded, mislead and their constituents MUST hold them responsible!

    I thought you right wingers hate the lazy bums mooching off of others? You should be all for the ACA which makes the free loaders get insurance to stop having others pay for it.

    Don't forget the individual mandate is a republican idea,...

    Amazing how Rush covers a topic and tosses out a one-liner, and they both show up here within minutes.

    Too freakin' funny.

    As I've pointed out Pelosi et.al. supporters are getting more caught in their deceptions!
    First there were 50 million uninsured. Now we find out they are "free -riders" but then we find out
    those despicable Free-riders generally pay their own way so where are they "free riders"?
    Then we have all those voters for Obamacare thinking this will not have any taxes finding out from SCOTUS IT IS A TAX!
    Then as Pelosi said we have to pass it to know what's in it.. THERE ARE 21 NEW taxes that will affect people making less then $120,000 which again was a lie from Obama remember..

    if your family earns less than $250,000 a year, you will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not one single dime. In fact, the recovery plan provides a tax cut – that’s right, a tax cut – for 95% of working families.

    Silly rabbit, didn't you get the memo? It's a tax and not a tax at the same time!
