I can't wait to see how the GOP's latest strategy of "vilify the elderly" works out for them.

I'm not burning anything. Three more punches on my Obamacare card and I get a free abortion.

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.

Unless you spell it wrong, in which case everyone will know you are a teabagger.

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.

Hello Ralph.
Hello Sam.

Subby, you must not be part of the Inner Circle, I got my ObamaCare card in January along with a lovely pair of jackboots and a "Death to America!" bumper sticker.

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.

Young and healthy people don't need any coverage because they can't get injured or fall ill. That only happens to old people, duh.

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."

Neddy doesn't believe in health insurance. He considers it a form of gambling.

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

You're going to need a bigger wallet.

Well off to have some high quality professional look OBAMA care cards made so I can begin selling them to the rubes.

Do you think a larger 8x11 contract looking document would sell well, if I put it big bold letters at the top


And then filled the rest with the BS talking points, you know, death panels and the like, forcing gay marriage etc...

Maybe have them printed on flash paper...

"....an incredibly regressive tax imposed on young healthy people that forces them to buy health-insurance plans that they can't afford and don't need, or pay a fine."

They're right.  Young people don't need health insurance.  Hell, I've paid for my car insurance all these years and haven't needed thus far.  Of course, if I run someone down while texting and driving and the family sues me for $1 million, I might change my tune.

They were supposed to issue the cards by the 3rd quarter of 2013 but it's been modestly postponed to 3813, just like the exchanges.
