    The individual mandate isn't being enforced anyway.

    My in-laws didn't buy insurance this year. After the government screwed them over and they had to pay them $10,000 they said screw it...Not worth it anymore.

    Why did your in laws owe the gubmint $10K? Did they buy an exchange policy and get a refundable tax credit to offset some of the premium that, once they did their tax return, turned out they were not entitled to? Not trying to ask a loaded question--just curious.

    They will go in. Maybe get on payment plan or something.

    That's the reality of what's really happening out there. Any other vision is just a pipe dream

    What kind of payment plan do you get on to pay for a heart attack or spinal injury? Ridiculous proposal. I say take everything they own or let them die.

    What is really happening is de facto socialized medicine for those that refuse to take responsibility for their lives.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Ummm...hospitals let you set up payment plans if you don't have insurance.

    At least around here they do.

    If they cannot afford a policy how on God's green earth would they ever pay for a several hundred thousand dollar hospital bill?
    I'm sick of paying my insurance and all medical bills on time and having freeloaders increase my costs.

    My mother's hospital stay was more than your house. How are you going to pay that? I say take everything they own or let them die. That will solve the mandate right there.
