you make 90k a year and you dont have health insurance ?
god I hope you get hit by a car, catch the plague and break multiple bones

no really, if you are that foolish, you need to suffer

This doesn't apply to me, but this is silly and needlessly cruel in nature. If you honestly feel that way you need a break from the Internet to regain your humanity.  90 thousand a year isn't billions or even millions of dollars, and in fact, it's jack shiat to many people who are decent, work hard and are responsible and are not buying new cars every year and so forth.

Get some humanity.   Your opinion of a person without insurance can be anything, but it's stupid of you to assume the circumstances of others, e.i, that they make 90K a year means they can pay insurance.

Maybe they have their money earmarked already to help their elderly grandmother, father, or mother?

Don't be such a prick.


Nobody has enough money to not have health insurance unless they can't get it, or are stupid beyond belief.

There's just no excuse to not have some kind of health insurance unless you can't get it or are stupid beyond belief.

And I say this as someone who has been turned down for insurance for the past 20+ years except when I have employee insurance, and I've been dancing in the streets since Jan 1, 2014 rolled around. At this point, I don't even care how much I have to pay

If you could afford insurance and choose not to, then you're stupid beyond belief, and I refuse to listen to any other excuse you might have, except rank stupidity. Try living in terror of hospitalization, car accidents or catastrophic illness for a couple of decades, and then come tell me how much money you need for your aged parents and how much good you'll be able to do them when you're crippled or dead.

I'm on the "This doesn't affect me directly because I have insurance through my employer, but because I'm capable of feeling empathy for my fellow man I'm glad that the uninsured will now be able to afford insurance" side.

clowncar on fire: Lucky you- my company family plan went from 250.00 to 1450.00  Payments dropped $2 a pay period so I'm supposed to get the word out there about how much this is saving me.  As long as I don't get sick, this is like getting a .025/hr raise.


Your company is screwing you and expecting you to blame it on Obamacare.

This times a brazillian. The people that are the most "screwed" by the ACA seem to be those who to little to no responsibility prior.
