SpankMeJohnny: Just get out your crayons and a 3" x 5" card and write "I'm an idiot" on it. Everyone will know you are an Obama supporter.
Lt. Cheese Weasel: But I thot cards is racist and disenfranchisement?
theorellior: Y'know, for some reason I feel like this thread, like many in the Politics Tab, is like those old Looney Toons shorts with Ralph the Wolf and Sam the Sheepdog. So far all the libby libtards are present and accounted for, now we just have to wait for the Usual Suspects to punch in and start herpaderping.
sammyk: So the individual mandate is wealth distribution from the young and poor to the old and wealthy? It's too early for me to wrap my head around that kind of stupid. The entire point TFA article is trying to make falls apart when you consider that parents can keep their sprog covered until they are 26. Let's not forget the subsidies either./will enjoy the tax benefit of keeping his daughter on his insurance while she goes to college.
Bloody William: Without overcharging young people, the Obamacare exchanges set to begin on Oct. 1 simply won't work. Neither will the Obamacare-compliant mandated insurance packages being offered by private companies.Um... that's the point. Young people are "overcharged" based on their medical needs so older citizens, who require much more care, are charged less when they have more difficulty affording it. It's kind of the idea behind insurance, broadening the risk pool to provide a consistency of care when it is needed. Anyone who has health insurance but doesn't get sick for a year is "overcharged."
somedude210: Mentat: Well, this should be an enlightening discussion.you say that like we won't. I, personally, can't wait to be a card-carrying Obamacare recipient, as well as a card-carrying NRA member, communist, socialist, nazi, klan member, NAACP member, Nazi-commie, liberal, progressive and staunch fiscal conservative
