  • Wow. So if it doesn't pass they are going to try and force, I'm sorry, nudge people into signing up for fear of penalties for signing up later? I love the reasoning; because if everyone doesn't take it the premiums are going to be 20% higher for those who choose to participate. Nice.

  • As the article stated, Medicare already does this. Tricare also uses similar tactics for retired personnel.

    But hey, gov't. healthcare if free. Right?

  • This is how it is for MOST things .... the government makes it so utterly unbearable to rebel against such things, that one chooses to comply because it is less trouble.

    Did you think they would give up so easily?

  • *shudder* .... for the healthy folk this transition into hell wont be so bad. I have uber medical problems and I think by the time I understand all this crap and the constant changes/tweaks/updates the system will have crashed, burned, and become a shameful relic of the past
