@moonglade, probably because most Americans can’t afford any more taxes. With this extra expense that’s going to be forced on people who are already weak, I just don’t see how those of us who can’t buy coverage through work will be able to pull ourselves out of poverty. You can’t invest in anything, take any more schooling or training, learn a hobby or skill from a teacher (unless you are able to find one who will teach you for free) or even gamble if you don’t have any money to do anything with. What can you do when you can’t go back to school and can’t teach yourself anything because you don’t have access to anyone with expert knowledge? Join the army and kiss all your dreams for your life goodbye? Even if you survive, by the time you’re able to afford to get out you’ll be an old, broken-down husk of a person, too old to start living the life you wanted. Become a drug dealer and risk death or prison, daily? Marry rich and possibly never have a real love life? I mean, when you’re down to the point where it costs you at least as much as you make just to exist, what can you even do?
