I wonder how many young people know how much opting out is going to cost them ?

    Let's say you are 20 or so, and no longer living at home. Let's say you are working for minimun wage, or whatever and you are not covered by health insurance.

    In 2014 unless you pay up for some healthcare, you will be charged $95.00 per adult or 1% of your income.

    By 2016, you will be charged $695.00 per adult and up to $2085.00 per household or 2.5% of your income whichever is greater.

    This is what Obama and American liberals have done to you. How's that for living in what we thought was freedom ?

    The money is not the issue. Both of those "fees" are far less than even the most modest coverage. Its the principle.

    Consider yourself "mandated."

    Tell that to some young person struggling and away from home. I remember my first jobs, I didn't have healthcare until I was 27, and on purpose by the way because I was young and didn't have any health issues. I simply didn't want the money deducted from my salary.
    American liberals have now forced you to pay.

    Yep, and it will be interesting to see how much they love their King Obama once they begin having to write checks to cover their asses.

    What about the principle of not having others pay for your care?

    We were lucky. If you had gotten severely ill, we would have had to pay. What of the young that do get sick? Do you think we should pay for their care with higher medical costs?

    You would be covered on your parents health insurance plan until 26.

    After 26, if you at near the poverty line, which minimum wage would place you at, then you would qualify for the government coverage.

    If you can already afford to pay for health insurance, but choose not to, because you'd rather mooch off the system if you get sick.

    Buuuuuzzzz. Thanks for playing.

    But don't bother paying attention to things like "facts", go ahead, continue with your conversation in the bubble.

    Problem is their king will be long gone and somehow their pea brains will be made to believe that it was all Bush's fault.
