    No, the problem is that the Democrat party is so drunk with power and control that they are more than willing to bankrupt the country to do it! Most people do not want this first step in a total governmental takeover of 1/6 of the economy!

    What about the 15-20 million illegal immigrants who still won't have health insurance? Who pays for them?

    I mentioned to a young woman today about this bill of which she had no knowledge (young people nowadays don't follow the news or politics) and she was surprised she could be jailed if she didn't buy health insurance. She said she didn't have the money so I guess she will go to the slammer under this bill.

    With all the illegal immigrants and young people in jail we will need to build a whole lot more jail cells to hold these dastardly miscreants. I guess that's part of Obama's job strategy. Lots of jobs for prison guards.

    What a great place is Obama's Amerika!

    Deport and fine everyone that is not here legally. Also fine and seize businesses that hire those people.

    Now you know perfectly well that isn't going to work so it's a non-starter. Let's get serious now.

    Could you show me the provision in the bill that jails people for not buying health insurance. I do believe you have been had.

    It would work. Too bad the republicans didn't do it when they had the support after 9/11. This is the only country I know where they let you stay illegally.

    The majority of those people can afford it but choose not to purchase it.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Most of those people can not afford it. They are in debt up to their eyeballs, have lost good paying jobs and will probably eventually lose everything. Health insurance should not be half of one's income.
