@moonglade, 3 years ago? I must be missing something then if this is all the rage in the news today? I guess the news is late too. My point is good sir, when you do speak up… who hears it? This system is broken… bro. You can give it any label you like, it’s still a mandated bill and fine every month, for every person, without question. You seem to speak from a sense or place of entitlement, and the goal of my comment was not to argue with you, but to embellish why I agreed with @monkeyzazu. It’s extortion because it’s going to happen whether you/I like it or not and we have no idea where all that money is going. Look up the definition of extortion… bro. Just like the bail out. Remember that? When we, the tax payers footed the bill and execs still got their half million dollar bonuses? Have we recouped those costs as expected?

I guess you feel like this is a great idea. That’s fine. But why should I have to buy into it just because someone I don’t know, and have no connection with or any similar circumstances with buys into it? There’s also the question of lifestyle. I lead a healthy lifestyle. If tragedy befalls me and I suddenly get cancer, I’m not going to blame the government. That’s life.

This also has ZERO to do with education, building roads and the military… and is completely unrelated to those topics as you’d mentioned. Unless you’re saying my not wanting to buy into Obamacare means I don’t want roads or a military? That would be a stupid assumption. And I think you probably could be even smarter than I am on an intellectual level, but it’s not apparent based on your comments. Peace be with you and enjoy the healthcare. It’s on me.
