I can't wait until everyone who loves this law finds out how much their free health care really winds up costing them... When this law fully kicks in, if you aren't "in" the medical community, you are going to be SOL. Your wait times for your doc are going to grow from days to weeks and maybe months and you won't be seeing your doc anymore, you'll be seeing their a.ssistant. That's if your doc hasn't dropped you and the only other doc who will see you just graduated from the bottom of their class from a med school in Uganda.
Ultimately, the middle and lower classes' level of health care will decline, rapidly, and the upper class will continue to easily pay for the best (life saving) treatment available. You can take that to the bank.
This will go down as the biggest tax ever...
oh yeah, and your prescription drug costs are going to go through the roof, too. Big Pharma wrote most of this health care fiasco and they made sure they blocked importation of drugs that compete against them, especially the inexpensive alternatives from Canada. That's how much Big Pharma gives a crap about Americans, absolute crooks.
i could go on and on
Kids today are becoming cold to the word freedom. Their social skills have eroded to the point that they cannot conceptualize what freedom really is any more. The far reaching effects this bill which was never going to be struck down entails negative sanctions the likes you have never seen as Americans before. I suggest you read it Alphabet before you continue to pollute the cyber air with your sickly ignorance. It's not a simple nuisance. It's real bad. You dismiss it as just another tax when it is not. You have just signed over your rights to live to a government looking to save money and if you don't comply they can put you away without a lawyer. They will inject you with anything they want and call it compliance with the laws of public welfare. Think of it as banning large sized sodas to the nth degree. They will make your life a living hell. Lets say you're so sick you need to start some antibiotics NOW and your doctor isn't available don't expect your pharmacist to help you out by slipping you a few till they get hold of his office. $50,000 fine per prescription. 100,000 fine for the 2nd offense etc. etc. Fines for all kinds of things that will cause the kind hearted pharmacist you knew and trusted to have to pack up and go, while the 20 something professionals at Walgreens and CVS who don't know you are now in charge of your care, and trust me they don't give a fu*k about you and will make mistakes and decisions that can hurt you, because the red tape will be unbelievable.
But the bigger picture that people fail to see is down the road when the MANDATE is added to that you have a chip implanted in your body which will give them a constant readout of what is your chemical status the information of which should be private but the GOVT will argue again successfully to the SCOTUS that it really is in your best interest and will become Sharia Law. Cholesterol getting a bit high? Your trip to MacDonalds will cost you a lot more than Joe thin guy with perfect health. See there will be heavy fines waiting for you f you should continue to disobey a warning automatically generated as soon as your last blood test which the chip will perform comes in. If they find your friends buying the cardiac clogging contraband for you they can be heavily fined or incarcerated as serial enablers for your illegal condition. These are just a few of the hundreds of ways this signifies the end of this country, and just to rub it in they are calling it FREE HEALTH CARE. The truth is it will cost you everything you had left to call yourself free.
The Constitution was the only thing protecting you from this type of government invasion into your life, and with this ruling it has been repealed.
the direction this country is going is now is as clear as it has ever been. Even the sheep must be getting a little nervous now.
Forgive me, I didn't read through your whole rant. I stopped at the free healthcare part, which to me, signals that you are grossly misinformed. The law is called the ACA, Affordable Care Act, not the Free Care Act. There's a difference between universal healthcare and universal free healthcare. I guess you're talking about the free preventive measures in the bill, which in the long run, will help lower health care costs by catching serious illness and diseases in the early stages.
