    It may be seen as a bit of hyperbole by you or I, but that is a statement of opinion. Last I checked he is still entitled to his opinion in the good ol USA, isn't he comrade?

    They set you up on a payment plan, and can do garnishment. Still, it would be nothing more than a tax penalty.

    Questions and Answers on the Individual Shared Responsibility Provision
    You are either being deliberately dishonest here, have bad reading comprehension, or are just straight-up confused, so I'll spell things out more clearly for you. (i suspect it's a combination)

    First, you said requiring health insurance is a "condition of living," not me. This isn't actually true, the penalty only applies beyond certain income levels. I then suggested you believe that income is a "condition of living." At no point did I suggest that I believe anybody must produce income.

    This is where your reading comprehension failure comes into play. The tax is a condition of income, that doesn't make income mandatory. I'm really not sure how you made this leap.

    Here's where the dishonesty or confusion kicks in:
    You either understand the concept of a household for the purposes of taxation or you don't. If it's the first one, you're being dishonest here because you know full well the insurance coverage for children would be dependent upon their parents' income, not income of the children. If it's the second, well, basically what I just said. Children are not subject to this tax (unless they have sufficient income). However, their parents might be. If they have sufficient income.

    Any more nonsense you care to spew?

    The tax penalty doesn't apply below a certain income threshold, and there are mechanisms for waiving that penalty for reasons of "hardship."

    If $695/year breaks the bank, you were never subject to it in the first place.

    He's not to be taken seriously, come on people, he has ZERO chance of even getting the nod for presidential candidate.

    He has proven time and time again his social and political views are bat**** insane and NOBODY honest, educated and respected takes him seriously.

    Politically he is a loon, a cartoon character.

    Unfortunately in today politics we have these people and its NOT limited to any one party, media uses them and their parties use them for their squeaky wheel.

    But at the end of the day they are just comic relief. Embrace what he actually is.
    The funniest part, is that this is all that Libbos can present as an argument to their opponents.

    LOL...so how is this supposed to work, again???

    I thought the whole premise of Obamacare, was that everyone purchases insurance, thus making rates go down?

    Did you not read the post he was responding to? He was nowhere near suggesting that this man had no right to hold his opinion. Rather, that the man's opinion is objectively wrong and that stating said opinion is indicative of a very poor understanding of both history and the health care law.

    And, like, reality in general.

    Why is it that right-wingers seem to think my criticism of your speech is somehow taking away your right to it?
