    This legislation is such a sham, even the dumbocrats are abandoning it. Which clearly shows 1 of 2 things....

    1.) The left knew it sucked ass and supported it because of partisan politics - at the detriment of the entire United States

    2.) They didn't do their homework when they supported it and voted for something they didn't read

    Either way, how humiliating for the dumbocrats...

    Just 6 votes passed Obamacare!
    And I KNOW that it would not have passed if these six voters had comprehended the following:
    1) 10 million of the so-called "50 million uninsured" were according to Census NOT CITIZENS... thus leaving 40 million.
    2) 14 million are and have been completely covered by MEDICAID! Leaving 26 million.
    3) 18 million are under age 34, make over $50,000 and pay an average OUT of POCKET health care costs of $2,000 a year LESS THEN their Employer offered health insurance!
    This leaves 8 million that truly are uninsured and want insurance.......NOT 50 million!

    NOW those 8 million could have been completely covered by a tax just like Obamacare is doing to tanning salons.. 10% on gross revenue.
    BUT instead a tax on the $100 billion lawyers make!
    The tax would decline in ratio to the decline of the $750 billion a year that physicians say they do defensive medicine out of fear of lawsuits!
    With one simple tax 8 million would be covered!
    Health care costs would decline as fear of lawsuits would decline and physicians wouldn't order so many duplicate tests.. i.e. defensive medicine.. $750 billion a year!
    Source for the 18 million figure: CRISIS OF THE UNINSURED: 2009
    AGE the annual per capita expenditure
    20 $ 1,448 (So why should they pay a $2,000 penalty for not having insurance when they pay out less in real expenses???
    40 $ 2,601
    65 $10,245
    Source for above expenditures:: The Lifetime Distribution of Health Care Costs

    People have no idea what Obamacare will do to their pocketbooks...
    :confused:
    Obamacare premium sticker shock could fuel foes

    Obama has made the political calculation that a majority of voters will either be insulated from these tax increases or be mollified that their neighbors are getting screwed even more than they are.

    Read the actual Legislation text, there is not way to enforce the so called fines.
