Re: Ok Trekkers, Don't Forget To Sign Up For Mandatory Obamacare Oct 1 As has been mentioned. It's only $95 this year, and it will increase quickly. In addition to the cost factors mentioned by others, if you're sick and it goes untreated, then there's a greater possibility of me catching your illness. That's your health care choice affecting me. Additionally, sick workers are less productive workers. A less productive workforce means businesses won't do as well, and the government won't collect as many taxes. Again, that's your choice having an impact on all of us. Stop, you're turning me on.
