    **And either get caught in enormous debt themselves or cause a burden on the taxpayer if health complications did arise, and then never have the chance to buy health insurance for yourself again because you now have a pre-existing condition.

    There, ftfy.

    Not buying health insurance is the DUMBEST thing you could do with your life. It puts yourself and the taxpayer in risk, because when something happens, someone has to pay the bill.

    SO what? If someone doesn't want to by insurance, then they shouldn't have to. It's their money, let them spend how they see fit.

    That is really none of your business is it?

    He damn well did say costs for healthcare would go down. He only had 6,656,345,323 healthcare speeches b/w the campaign and passage saying this.

    Where have you been?

    Also, relearn what Socialism is, because if you are calling Obama's healthcare plan socialist, then you have NO idea what the word even means. And saying that it gives China ownership of the US is COMPLETELY unfounded.
    Again, your not seeing the big picture here.

    Someone who doesn't want to buy it, sees no increase.

    Also, your taking money out of the private sector and placing it out of the market, so less money is exchanging hands.

    It is not unfounded, b/c we are going to have to call China to take on more of our debt, b/c we can't afford the spending that this is gonna cost.

    17% premium hikes are such good news the white house posted on its website a piece by linda douglas ripping ap's article as "an inaccurate assessment of adminstration policy"
