    ....and they will and they will ignore the fines. So who did not know this? Only Obama supporters. Obama and his cohorts knew this. It is one of their ways to a single payer system. The Obama gang is not dumb, in fact they are very smart, they just know how dumb their followers are.

    To "DN Subscriber 2" it isn't fair to call this Socialism. Obamacare is Fascism. It uses the government to control private business.

    This is one of the "What did you think would happen?" moments. If given the choice to buy insurance for $3000/yr or pay a $100 fine, the fine is cheaper. This does say a lot about those who wrote and voted for the ACA. It says that either they are so incompetent at their job that they couldn't see this happening or else is says that they knew that the younger people wouldn't buy insurance and it would push us towards a single payer system.

    Obamacare forces healthy people to reach deep into their pockets to subsidize sicker people. That's been the Democrat dream for ages-and now they've succeeded.

    Hopefully, as a result, enough young people who voted for Obama will realize what a mistake it was for them personally to vote Democrat in 2012-- and never do it again.

    If we allow Obamacare to be implemented, it will hasten the destruction of our personal and economic freedom. But, that is Obama's goal.

    Socialists demands that individuals sacrifice their earnings to fulfill the demands of the state bureaucrats "for the benefit of everyone."

    Freedom allows people to make choices, some good and some bad, and benefit or suffer from the consequences of their choices.

    Now, we are told that it is acceptable to force people to buy a product they do not want or need. What next? Flea collars for pets even though you don't have any? Car insurance but you don't have a car? Maternity insurance even though you are male? (Oops, Obamacare already demands that!) Contributions to the Democrat party even though you despise their policies?

    Now go buy your health insurance, and hope you never need any medical care, because it will be harder to get, lower quality and much more expensive, now that is will be "free."
