We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The most Evil element about Obamacare is that, even if seniors have prudently saved as much as they could so that they could buy specific urgent medical treatments/operations etc. directly from their doctors, and not use their soon to be non-existent medicare benefits, the government will fine heavily the doctors who would otherwise be willing to treat them.
The Canadians have always been able to come down to the U.S. and buy emergency treatment which the Canadian health system rations by delaying sometimes for months the urgent medical care they need. But this dirty trick by our Congress is like trapping someone in a burning house by blocking all the doors and windows.
