    I believe that it's part of the design of the bill. Democrats wanted the economic impact to be minimal through the first couple election cycles after which the true goals of the bill will surface. They are in no particular order, wealth redistribution, decimation of the private insurance industry and increasing dependency on the Federal government.

    Until the true costs are exposed, we are boiling frogs.

    Not enough options, frankly. You don't necessarily have to pay the fine if you don't sign up. There are plenty of exceptions. Also, plenty of young people already have insurance or are on their parent's insurance. Bad poll.

    Yup, I'm a high school senior and my parents voted for Obama, and I would have too if I was old enough.
    I'm on their insurance.

    You wouldn't be so smug if you understood that your future is being stolen from you.

    That brings up a good point. First Obama said you can stay on mom and dads insurance and then he claims the healthy young people signing up for obamacare is what will pay for old and unhealthy people. Seems like having your cake and eating it to. I am coming to the quick conclusion in this thread that most of you lib 20 somethings in here are still relying on mommy and daddy to buy your insurance.

    Here's the numbers for you kids still getting insured by mommy. This is what you will pay when they can't baby sit you any more and you buy your own insurance. Assuming you make 50 k you will pay over $2,500 a year for Obama care.

    I don't know. It takes sacrifice to put away for the future and don't know how many are really realistically making those kinds of sacrifices.

    Am afraid many think they can live on a percentage of what they make now but when retired they are going to have a lot of time on their hands. With that free time there is going to be an urge to travel and spend money but how many will have enough.

    I hope I am wrong.

    Most of us baby boomers had parents and or grandparents that lived through the depression. Saving and planning was drilled into us from a very early age.
