    Against the uninsured? I would think forcing people to buy a service is being against them, but hey, maybe I'm new to this kind of thing.

    The ones that aren't forced to buy something they don't want? I was unaware that some people didn't matter.

    CORRECTION: Insurance cos. will only be happy if it was high enrollment. It won't work for any patients.

    We here in Illinois don't let the 10th amendment get in the way of things like the Medicaid sign-up, a Republican idea..
    Why do Republican governors block Medicaid for their uninsured poor, 2/3 of the Nation's poor??

    I'm curious - since about 50 million Americans are uninsured, why would you believe only 15 million are "targeted"? Are you suggesting that the ACA is not only bad legislation, it's also inadequately bad?

I do not look forward to seeing what my premium and co-pay will be a few years from now.

    What happened to the promise that our personal medical costs would all go down by an average of $2,500.00 a year?
    Beware of Greeks/Government officials bearing gifts!
    The difference is between the bait and the switch.
    The ACA is about driving all Health Insurance carriers into the secondary roll of
    administrating the single payer system.
    The personal user costs are distant second to the primary objective of single payer.
    Those words sound good in speeches, but have the same credibility as a used car salesman.
    (Perhaps I am being insulting to used car salesman, but no offense is intended.)

    You must have graduated from the "Obama school of blame-laying". Low enrolment couldn't possibly have anything to do with the law being crap, right?
