That's their choice as free individuals.

It's not the government's job to protect us from ourselves.

Republicans have been blinding people with the mandate, that they forget all the good
#### in the ACA. Besides not being able to decline people with pre-existing condition and
parents being able to keep their kids on their insurance longer, Insurance companies
are going to have a cap of 15% above cost for what they can charge for premiums.
That will effect everybody who has insurance and the cost should come down.
Insurance companies are already sending people refund checks for over-charging
them. The ACA also has several tax credits in it, a list of them are here:


There is a tax credit of $13,360 per child, for parents of adopted children.

There's other things, some which will not take effect until 2014.

Some of what people consider bad thing are requiring employers to provide insurance to
employees. But there are tax credits for that too. The mandate for people to purchase
insurance is offset by a subsidy of $5,000 a year. See here:


There is a 10% tax for people who use tanning beds for non-medical purposes. Some
other risky behavior has consequential taxes as well.

But, you get 5,000 a year to pay for insurance, so there should be no one without it.

The gov't is going to undermine the majority of primary healthcare providers and all the small business doctors offices are going to take a hit. Then it will spread to specialist practices.

Basically the government is going to take a monopoly over the healthcare industry and nobody can do #### about it.

I was talking about wait times to see specialists and people that require surgeries. Right now you could get in for a major surgery maybe in 2, 3 months but soon it'll be 1-2 years just like England and Canada.

For starters:

In particular, given publicly available data we cannot incorporate the effects of the ban on pre-existing conditions exclusions. This ban will cause a rise in premiums as insurers are forced to cover conditions that they had previously excluded.

It's just common sense that insurance companies having to pay for more things will raise premiums.

I mean it would be common sense, but not if they are getting more money coming in by this mandate. The article you posted said the mandate isn't enough but that's a projection, I get it though
