    it's more of an indictment of our ridiculous employer-specific health care delivery model than it is of the PPACA. if it brings about the end of that model more quickly, then PPACA might be less useless than I thought.

    Fair enough, although there is no jail penalty for not buying your mandated health insurance.

    There's a outrageous fine for an employer who doesn't buy his workers health insurance, and if he can't afford that fine, he goes to jail.
