    You think they only poll people who don't pay taxes?

    But you're right -- they don't pay the fine because they're buying insurance and thus not costing tax payers money to pay for their health care. That's how its supposed to work.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Honestly can say that I am surprised that all the bill was passed. I thought that majority would fall into the idea of keeping it because of a tax.

    and shame on the union if it allows that to result
    didn't you tell us you were a union official?

    Do you understand the difference between a positive and negative? Not losing an obligation you ALREADY HAVE is completely different than a new obligation.
