@tangledupinplaid21,

I don’t mean to offend you, but you’re the perfect example of why this act is so messed up. The people who can’t afford health insurance or the ones who don’t want/need it aren’t benefiting from this. It’s either your too poor to afford this in which your still going to have high medical bills, or the government deems that you can afford it and penalizes you if you don’t pay up.

How can they say we can afford something solely based on our yearly income? That’s not enough information to come to a conclusion like that. Most of it could go to living expenses, in which how do we afford something mandatory like this? Do they really think not penalizing someone compensates for them not benefiting from this act? They’re still not getting help with their medical bills, so there’s really no point to this act.

And its not that we don’t want to support and help others who needs it, it’s just that this act doesn’t allow us too. They’re making it mandatory that if you “can” help yourself, you “will” help yourself by getting health insurance or pay a penalty.
