https://www.healthcare.gov/what-if-s...erage-in-2014/The fee in 2014 is 1% of your yearly income or $95 per person for the year, whichever is higher. The fee increases every year. In 2016 it is 2.5% of income or $695 per person, whichever is higher.
In 2014 the fee for uninsured children is $47.50 per child. The most a family would have to pay in 2014 is $285.
We believed our elders when they told us to study hard and go to college and we'll have gainful employment. Instead now we're told to shut up and flip burgers and be grateful not to be homeless. We are the first generation in modern history that will be poorer than our parents. Voting in one president doesn't make changes like that. The right wing policies that have been gutting the middle class since the 70s does. But now we're growing up. And we're cynical. And we have no illusions. You and yours stole our future from us, and we're going to take it back.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
The punks did vote for Obama... the Socialists always appeal to them because they're largely (not entirely) ignorant. I was once a hard lefty before traveling the world. I grew up... many "adults" here haven't. They still believe in Santa Claus, class warfare, and The Ponzi/Madoff Schemes. What they fail to realize is they all implode.
You're right that generations before are responsible for instituting terrible Ponzi Schemes... but again, the youth/ignoramus vote in the past two elections went for even more of the idiocy. And those who should be held responsible for the cess pool they created, are long dead. They did good work for their Socialist Party... making people dependent, dividing to conquer them, but what they really did is bend over the country and give it what-fo'.
Then there's the likes of Ted Cruz... someone who sees the problems and isn't a slave to the party... he's trying to lead the country and his party out of cess pool waters. What happens... well look at the jerk-off press, and it's no wonder we keep digging a deeper and bigger hole.
And then there are major league idiots like John McCain. What a fool. God Bless his military sacrifices, but in the Senate he's proven to be a moron.
Ignorance has its costs... and America will eventually have to pay for the idiocy of Amerika.

I AM DEPLORABLE.
NEVER CRIMINAL HILLARY (S-NY)
Now, you could blame sequester and federal income tax cuts for cutting spending and thereby reducing aid to states, which forced local tax increases, but that is more congress than the current administration.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
