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.
Maybe all the people who wanted health insurance and could afford it already had it. The so-called Affordable Care Act seems to be about making the rest of us buy it -- and making it a lot less affordable.
There is so much about Obummercare that I don't know (I don't think I'm alone), but aren't a lot of those people who couldn't afford insurance going to put on the Medicaid roles? Weren't they already there?
I know a lot of those "uninsured" were young people who chose not to have insurance. But I can't help but think that when they made those wild claims of tens of millions uninsured they included illegal aliens. So I think we are waiting for the next shoe to drop before Obamacare fulfills it's intended goal; amnesty.
