    This law was a failure when it passed. There is no hope to it.

    Regardless, the yoke is yours to carry....We are going to make damned sure of that.

    That is incorrect. You have mistaken "hidden, socialized costs" for "free". You pay for those visits in the form of higher premiums - but pay for them you shall.

    Do you know the difference between the content of your post and what a barber is paid to do?

    You claimed they were free. Objectively they are not - you pay for them. Their costs are simply hidden from you to allow for the exact deceit that you were attempting to engage in - that the preventative care was costless to the recipient.

    Yes, I miss that system, and I'm fortunate to be able to afford it. This is KILLING a lot of middle-class and poor Americans right now, who aren't taking their kids to the doctor because they don't have the $100.

    Not to mention, overall rates are skyrocketing, and people can't see their doctors in many cases.

    Yeah, this is just great.
    Under Obamacare, my copay is 5 bucks for an office visit, 30 bucks for a specialist, and 5 bucks for a prescription, so I don't see where you are getting your numbers from.

    they would not be fined until they do their 2014 taxes in 2015 i would imagine, especially since enrollment is open to March.

    Yeah? What's your deductible?

    Just not with the doctor you want to see.
