ObamaCare Revisited

Since J and Hiram brought the topic up in the Defict vs Surplus discussion, maybe there is some interest in revisiting it.  I have at least one reason to dislike Obamacare, since it already cost my family $800+ this year alone.  And that is only from the medical flex spending maximum being lowered from $5,000 to $2,500...

The reality is that someone is going to have to pay for those who can not afford the insurance.  And more funds will need to be kept in the pool due to their being more variability in the system.

About your point that "somebody must pay"...

The last time I did the math I used real numbers, but I will use guesstimates here to show the point. Of the 45 million supposedly uninsured in this country, 20 million are already covered by an existing program but choose not to apply for it, 16 million could afford their own but choose not to buy, and 12 million are illegal aliens who should not be covered at all. Thus, 48 million of the 45 million uninsured do NOT need to be "paid for" at all!

The problem here is that we are ALL going to (or are already) paying a lot more for a lot less. Heckuva deal.
