    As Obamacare becomes the law of the land and employers based healthcare dwindles away I think you'll all do the right thing and get signed up.......

    Courts may not get last word in health care fight

    "Medicare's coverage for doctor visits is totally voluntary and carries a separate premium, yet more than nine in 10 seniors sign up. The reason is simple: those who opt out when they first become eligible face a lifelong penalty that escalates the longer they wait."

    "The same kind of penalty could be incorporated into the health care overhaul in place of the current mandate that all Americans who can afford a policy must carry one. That would be a stiff nudge to get healthy people into the insurance pool, keeping premiums in check after the law takes away the ability of insurers to deny coverage to those in poor health."

    "You don't have to buy insurance. But if you don't, the first time you come in, we're going to add a penalty that you'll have to pay for the next four or five years."

    "As a society, we have made a commitment not to let people die in the street because of lack of medical care," she said, noting that hospital emergency rooms have to accept the uninsured. "It's not unreasonable to say that people be required to carry some sort of coverage."

    No, I won't sign up for anything that's unconstitutional, period. And whether or not you are able to see the writing on the wall, obamacare is going to go away, starting in January.

    Why would anyone sign up for healthcare in a system that has no funding?

    Even democrats aren't that stupid.

    It has some funding. They stole 960 Billion dollars from Seniors to fund it and this new omnibus porker has 90 billion dollars of funding in it for obamacare. So that's a trillion dollars. Course all the seniors are going to suffer but that's the way it is in librulland.

    That's going to change too, starting next month. The closer you get to the conservatives replacing the dems, the more we're starting to hear the call for a total repeal of obamacare. That IS why many of the conservatives were elected.

    I agree. It has very minimal funding now, but we'll see in February.

    And all that may be moot anyway, if the unconstitutionality is upheld.

    ObamaCare is Unconstitutional and too costly; it must be scrapped

    What's unconstitutional about it? :confused:

    If you're referring to the mandate to buy we'll see. But the crux of the article is what would happen if it IS ruled unconstitutional.

    In America, nobody is dying in the streets for lack of health care.
