You are the worst kind of reactionary no-information opinion collector.
And I love to read yours. No but really, I'm doing pretty ok. Seriously. Don't worry. Honest to an unspecified god and or higher power.
Oh and uh, feel free to inform.
Hey, pot, what kind of fish are you?
Roberts has been compromised and violated his Constitutional oath.
All patriots and freedom lovers are absolved from any mandate of slavery.
Historic precedent says bloodshed is now inevitable.
Buy guns, ammo, supplies now.

Yeah, my first inclination may be off: I've been seeing a lot of quotes from State Republican officials this afternoon saying that they may not opt into Medicaid expansion, or that budgetary constraints won't allow them to. Don't know how much of this is day-of-the-decision political bluster, but who knows, there may be more than a handful of states that decline to join in the expansion.
Our Governor and State Senate President both came out today and said that they had serious concerns about Medicaid expansion for Utah. I saw a similar statement from Mississippi's officials (who naturally already have the highest per capita Medicaid population in the country).
Tom where do you see the hospitals and medical professional associations coming down on the lobbying for this?

I'm of the opinion that most of the Republican-controlled states will ultimately decline the Medicaid expansion for the simple reason that nothing still riles up the hysterical Tea Party base like "Obamacare". So for any Republican governor or state legislator who wants to stay in office, they'll have to answer to these rabid constituents who will wonder why their elected officials opted to take any part in Obamacare, and while increasing state government spending to boot. That will clearly not go over well, despite the enticement of significant federal funds.
In 2018, my insurance premiums will be taxed at 40%. WTF

Tom don't act like a dummy just so your dumb joke will work
Ok, so moving along from ass wiping, Tom, have you seen this? https://www.bcbsri.com/BCBSRIWeb/pdf...Fact_Sheet.pdf
I just noticed the date on it is 4/11/2010; how accurate a representation of the requirements & penalties of PPACA is it today?
I also posed the question on Facebook about how different the health insurance mandate is from the requirement that if you have a car, you need a minimum amount of car insurance. All I've ever known is that you have to have car insurance; do you recall when it was that the requirement was made, and if so, was there a brouhaha over the government forcing people to do something?
Lastly, do you have any idea what the tax that's assessed to those who opt out of having health insurance (and are not exempted from the mandate) will be applied towards? I initially thought that it'd go to medical/insurance companies so that health insurance rates don't increase but now I'm guessing it would go to fund whatever government medical programs are in place. Has there been anything that addresses this that you're aware of?
Yes that is a good summary of the provisions of the law.
The difference between health insurance mandate and car insurance requirement is that having a car is (theoretically) optional. You are now required to have health insurance just by virtue of existing.
I think the mandate penalty just goes into the general fund, but conceptually, it is one of several new taxes that are intended to be used to fund subsidies and medicaid expansion.
