Liberal minded people never want to be penalized for their choices much like criminals who plead not guilty and wear out our court system. I maintained health insurance for my family while making 20k a year in living in ****ing mobile home while my friends and neighbors did without living in nicer homes and cars. Now those same people are mooching off the rest of us that played by the rules. I say screw'em, there should be a penaty for poor behavior, not a ****ing reward.
YMMV... but it proves the point that quite a few people do have policies in place to take care of the major stuff, most policies they can't keep under the ACA because it doesn't cover what the government thinks they should have.
It's the core of why I, and many others, feel the ACA is way out of line, pretty much from A to Z.
Building block or stumbling block.... choose.
And think on this, guy - if lots of people go bankrupt, does it affect you? Sure does, absolutely it does...or do you think that a lot fewer people buying things during the Great Recession was an accident? The GR wasn't due to health care, of course, but half of ALL bankruptcies are due at least in part to health care costs. Do you think it would help America's economy if our rate of bankruptcies was cut in half? Sure would.
In other words, whether or not we have the ACA, you pay ANYWAY, whether to subsidize other peoples' health care, or to pay for the results of people not getting health care.
