So why do we need DUMBOcare then?
Because going to the ER costs way too much, at least $500 per visit that taxpayers pay for.
Going to a family doctor is only about $100.
And his 111 BRAND NEW BUREAUCRACIES that go with it?
That's bullshit that morons like you fall for.
And if those people who go to the emergency room and don't pay now what makes you think they'll pay for DUMBOcare?
The individual mandate, dumbfuk.
Here's how they do it in Massachusetts:
If a resident does not have coverage and does not have a waiver, the Department of Revenue will enforce the insurance requirement by imposing a penalty. In 2007, the penalty was the loss of the personal exemption. Beginning in 2008, the penalty is half the cost of the lowest available yearly premium which will be enforced as an assessed addition to the individual's income tax.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Massachuse ... are_reform
So WHY are you against the individual mandate?Why DO YOU WANT PEOPLE GETTING A FREE PASS and YOU PAYING FOR IT?
Are you not for personal responsibility
