  • The poor will be raked over the coals to pay and if they don't pay, then they get fined. If they don't pay the fines, they go to jail (?)

  • Taxes, taxes and more taxes. Plus, folks who don't buy insurance will be paying huge fines, and the government will have access to all your bank accounts, so if they run a little short, guess they can just take whatever they need. People really should have read the bill. Not that it would have helped. 67% of Americans opposed this bill as of yesterday afternoon, and it was passed anyway. It's a takeover of one sixth of the nation's economy and there will be more to come. This is just the starting place.

  • Everyone. Over the next 4 years there will be taxes and surcharges added to companies and individuals over a certain income amount. The companies will pass that cost on to the consumer, so you will pay for it with increased prices, while the individuals who run businesses will either fire employees or find ways to pad the extra costs into their own service fees (or simply close down their business completely)
