What I don't want is to be thrown in with the rest of America, which is overweight, eats crap, and doesn't exercise. Also, I reject some of what standard medicine does, and definitely believe in Holistic alternatives and Holistic lifestyles.
I resent, then, the Federal government forcing me to participate in a system that is at odds with my personal beliefs, that mainly benefits those who abuse their bodies with poor lifestyle choices.

Look, government will always shuffle money around; we all know this. But in the case of this legistlation it had to be paid for somehow, but how exactly was that to be done?
Tax the people? Nope, not in a recession and certainly when you have no idea what the nation's economy will look like 3, 4, 5 years from now.
Tax the rich? Well, since most are very capable of writing a check to a charitable organization or even worse - pay for their own health care out of pocket, I don't think they'll have a problem paying a tax on premium health insurance. In fact, I've heard more celebraties and the supper rich like Warren Buffet say he has no problem paying more in taxes if it meant giving the nation's poorest an opportunity to have access to better health care coverage if any at all.
Take big business? Well, maybe, but that's only for those who don't provide adequate health care coverage to their employees. Make no mistake: this was targetted at companies like WalMart who purposely keep some of their employees below 40-Hr work weeks just to avoid providing health coverage. I know some people from my local church who work at Walmart and other retail stores who complain about this tactic all the time...cut hours to 28-Hrs or give employees as much as 35-Hrs just so they don't count as full-time employment, and thus...no health care for you Ms. Parker, single mother w/3 little mouths to feed.
People just need to step outside their own situations to see where the real needs are in this country as well as witness the buplicity of it all. I was like some people here...didn't think there was any problem at all w/this nation's health care system...until I started experiencing the underhanded tactics myself via members of my family. Now, my eyes are wide open! You better recognize, fool!
Young, healthy individuals are paying thousands of taxpayer dollars every year to fund an already bankrupt government program that won't be around long enough to "help" when current young adults get old and sick.
ObamaCare is similar because it's basically taking all of the other government health care ponzi scheme's, and combining them to create one massive debt creating system of socialized health care. Whose to say ObamaCare will be around long enough to give rationed care to young adults, who will pay heavily in taxes their whole life, when they turn old?
Socialism is great on paper, until you run out of other people's money. That's the problem with social security, too. Just like ObamaCare will become, it's a big ponzi scheme.
