    Less than 25-- exempt from obamacare.
    That placed us in a position to buy our own policy as well as support those that were on obamacare. It is a socialist program.

    18 to 20 million of them are the same people that always opted not to have insurance, mostly the young. Additionally, others without insurance go to hospitals that offer sliding scale for the poor. There is also a very large group that fall under the christain health system (not insurance). I belong to that group now.

    I am not going to pay insurance companies what amounts to a new car each year to visit a doctor once a year. I am not paying for the Obamacare moochers either.

    They might come back. Single men should not have to pay for another's pregnancy unless they created it. Lol. I think that is what trump wanted in his plan

    Trump "care": don't get sick; and if you do, die quickly.

    And according to wrongheaded conservative/libertarian dogma, such persons shouldn't have access to affordable health care because they've "failed" to be successful in life.

    Don't drag libertarians into the conservative's morality pageant. This has nothing to do with personal virtue or vice. We just don't see a good reason for government to takeover health care.

    Someone with an employer provided high deductible health insurance plan with a company funded health savings account would want to postpone their part a enrollment because they could not fund the HSA and the HSA is not use it or lose it, it can be rolled over from year to year and money can be withdrawn to supplement income in retirement.

    Additionally, they could not be drawing Social Security. Refusing Part A not only stops any Social Security, it requires paying back any Social Security that has been received. Pretty sure Anathema will be taking Part A, he just likes to run off at the mouth.
