A better idea would be for government to just pay for "pro bono" work done by hospitals and doctors as needed. It could be in the form of tax credits. Right now docs just get shafted by uninsured who don't pay for work performed. Give the doc a tax write off for this work performed. Incentives to treating poor and uninsured. A win win. Would cost far less than what is being proposed now.

Rushie 10:28 pm says: "Are the Amish exempt?" OH, I WISH IT WERE JUST THE AMISH. (Remember when BHO was against the corp.in America? now he exempts them.)? President Obama’s health law and the “individual mandate” requiring residents to have health insurance, more than 160,000 others who use health-sharing ministries will be exempt. They’re one of nine exemptions built into the health care law, covering everyone from ILLEGAL immigrants to PRISONERS; those who have religious conscience objections. HEY nobody wants his (BHO) crappy, miserable ideas. Obama doesn't even want it. He just doesn't know this because he hasn't read it either

FEDUP - boobybull has been out championing the ACA. And today he has been sitting on his computer trying to sign up for his "free" coverage.

boobybull- where you've been? I missed you. Thought maybe you had gotten so distressed by Obama's bungled foreign policy mistakes that you no longer felt obliged to make excuses for Obama any longer.

StoneJarl, you seem to be OK with helping those with incomes under $50K. Are you OK with Obama giving financial assistance (subsidies) to those on his staff making $175,000 a year?

Good question Rush. Could be a loophole we can use. Don't know why they would be though. My guess is they will just pay the fine when they file their taxes.

Regulator, must be those subsidies come from those of us "who have a full cup".

And if this person is quoting Jerry Garcia, I think we know how he or she spends their day. Probably very excited to sign up tomorrow.

StoneJarl says, "for incomes under $50,000 there is financial assistance available" Where does this financial assistance come from? Answer that Stone and you'll see why so many are upset.

Stonejarl - WHY ANY EXEMPTIONS? please explain why there is discrimination at the highest levels and that does not bother you.

Lucky, you're a moron. The President lives for free along with his mama-in-law. Should we all live for free? Barry gets to fly anywhere he wants for free, should we all?

The point is Barry, Harry, and Nancy tell everyone how great this is, but do not join it! If it is so great why not? Please explain.

A least this lie didn't kill thousands of our brave military men and woman. I case you don't know yet, both our political parties lie to get what they want. That is why I won't belong to either party. It saves me a lot of time trying to come up with a reason of why the other parties lies are bigger than my parties lies.

StoneJarl, what in your mind would meet the criterion of an acceptable constructive criticism? Does Obama not telling the truth that anyone who liked the health insurance would keep it be considered a constructive criticism? Does his lie matter? He said that we would all play be the same rules, but Congress gave them a carve out and he provided waivers to others. Is pointing out his glaring inconsistency a legitimate criticism?

why is no one on here calling for the end of social security. The politians and gov't empolyes are exempt from that also. Have you ever seen a political motorcade on the open highway, they are exempt from the speed laws and traffic lights also. So let's eliminate all traffic signals and speed limits in the country. This will get a lot of disagrees but that only shows the this argument against Obama care is a joke.

I think this says it all!

As Crisis Unfolds, Obama Sets Personal Golf Record By KEITH KOFFLER, White House Dossier "As the House moved Saturday toward passing legislation that will likely result in a government shutdown, President Obama excused himself to play his customary Saturday golf, a round that set a record for most golf outings in a year since he became president. It is perhaps emblematic of his declining influence on Capitol Hill that Obama chose not to work to affect the outcome of one of the most consequential pieces of legislation in years and instead engaged in his favorite recreational activity".
