    I tried that link. We get no subsidy.

    Fortunately, we got a letter from my husband's employer that, yes, we're covered and the plan meets the standards. That's what happens when someone works for a large employer.

    The sad thing is the thread was being somewhat useful before that point.

    Hopefully this horrible horrible policy will be blocked and eventually stopped from every happening. Absolute terrible entitlement that will have a significant role in crippling this country.

    Make no mistake, this will help lead towards a worse future for Americans and humankind.

    And millions being denied coverage isn't heading towards the worst possible future?

    How about situations where health insurers retroactively cancel an insurance policy after the surgery has taken place leaving the patient out of pocket (As one poster on this board can attest).

    Maybe you should do some reading before you post again becasue there are millions in Canada, the U.K, Australia, Scandinavia etc etc who have universal health coverage and guess what - we're not suffering for it and we have a lot better health than many many many Americans.

    You could not possibly be more wrong.

    I'll just leave this here.

    That's the most retarded thing I've ever read in here, and I spent most of my time in TNZ...so congrats on winning the award.

    I'll never understand why a black man being President bothers some people so much and why they must create such elaborate conspiracies and stories so they don't have to admit it's simple racism.

    Same in Australia, where the levy is 1.5% of your gross income, adn who would miss that? That's only about $900 A YEAR so someone paying that a month is WTF territory for me. Why is it so hard for the US to do that? It simply escapes me.

    Read all about it here:

    As for this:
    I'm with Squigs. You should tell us more about the privy. Seems to be where you're getting this shit from. If any of this was close to real, it'd be out there and an impeachment hearing would be happening as we speak. Grow up.

    Remember, kids, when you need it, "you earned it."
    When someone else needs it, it's "entitlement."

    Goddamn sick kids and their need to live. You're right, Alex, those poor kids who died from easily preventable illnesses were spoiled rotten, thinking they had the right to proper healthcare in one of the richest nations in the world.

    I'll pay my $95 fine every year. It's cheaper than something I don't want.

    Is it cheaper than if you get injured/sick having to pay out 1000s of dollars for medical treatment?

    Maybe all these posters are Amish and mocking the "I don't want health insurance" thing would be insulting religious beliefs?

    Oh wait... online discussion board.

    Not having health insurance is as stupid as not having car insurance (which is very stupid, as a friend of mine is currently finding out).

    While I agree not having health insurance is stupid, shouldn't Americans have the freedom to choose if they want it or not and not have to be told "Get Health Insurance or else...". Aren't people old enough to make their own choices and live with their own consequences? Why, in this country, must everyone have health insurance whether they like it or not?

    Because not having health insurance, just like not having car insurance, drives up costs for everyone else. Hospitals can't turn you away just because you don't have health insurance, so they pass the costs on to those who do. Similarly, if you don't have car insurance and you crash into someone, they still have to pay for it - and they can't rely on your insurance to help cover it either. So their rates go up even more.

    Have I mentioned recently how much I love you? :adore:

    Sounds more to me like you've got your head stuck in the privy.

    This. So much this. Even I know that Maricopa County is nowhere near Hawaii. I can't imagine what expertise a sheriff from Arizona might have in government documentation issued half an ocean away. Or do people just have an overwhelming desire to watch Obama digging ditches while wearing pink underwear? Because that's about the only thing that Arpaio is capable of producing.

    Shhh! Don't tell them that - you'll ruin their preconceptions that we have unreasonable wait times and second-rate care, even though I got an immediate exam, including a CT scan, when I had a sudden-onset, blinding headache, and a full range of tests (including more CT scans as well as heart tests) within two or three weeks of having a series of fainting spells.

    You won't want it right up until you'll need it. Then you'll thank god you have it. Of course, if you don't have it, your $95 won't mean shit against what you'll cost me in the current system, so consider it a bargain.

    :lol: You guys are so funny. Also, if you are gonna write such silly things, please drop the iguana avatar. It's embarrassing.

    Well, I hope you don't get sick.

    It's amazing how people don't understand how insurance works.
