    If nothing else, some of us would like to be able to purchase politices that limit the cost by limiting what things are covered by the policy. With this, that's not possible. We have to pay for coverage that we will never use.

    No, actually it's to make healthcare affordable by adding folks who think themselves to healty to bother with insurence, the young & foolish mostly. Yet when an unexpected injury or illness strikes them, they run to the ER & stiff them, leaving us to pay the bill.
    Itis cheeper to supply insurence to the needy, then to cover their ER bills, I've heard.

    why do you want Americans not being covered for their illnesses?

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I've got an idea folks. Since we can tax anything now, let's tax non-stock owners, it's logical, afterall the more money in the market the better it will do. Sure, some people will lose everything but it's for the "greater good". I realize that under the commerce clause we cannot "force" anyone to buy into Wall Street but thanks to the collosal ****up by Chief Justice John Roberts and the infinite stupidity of saying we can tax anything it doesn't matter.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    And you're helping them by making them buy something they couldn't afford in the first place?

    this is coming from the side that was complaining about supposed "death panels".

    so govt. can't decide when folks live or die...but insurance companies can. huh.

    I say we tax non gun owners. they are driving up the cost of national security and police security by refusing to protect themselves adequately.
