    Party of the working man.

    This isn’t an unexpected result, given that there are far fewer wealthy people and that they’re far less likely to have to make the difficult financial choice between, say, buying insurance or making the rent.

    But it certainly wasn’t discussed much during the faux debate over ObamaCare, or during the law’s slapdash implementation under Barack Obama.

    What's better?

    1. Paying to have insurance that has standards
    or 2. Having none and ending up needing to sell your house to pay your bills.

    We shouldn't even be discussing this as we should have single payer.

    Poor people not being fined because they want a roof over their families heads is better.

    Poor people apparently do their own taxes or the ones that have someone doing them don't know about the exemptions.

    What's better? Ain't nothing better than a big, juicy false dilemma.

    That's exactly right. These are always the people who take it in the ass from the regulatory state.

    But we don't have it.

    And the people who can least afford the fine are paying it.

    How, by any twisted logic, does that make any sense ?
