Not sure how that works unless you have some scheme to short insurance stocks.

Oh and I'm healthy (knock on wood) and have no family to support so the rest don't do me any good at all.
As far as #5 goes, I have $400 in my pocket that I wouldn't have had before Obamacare. But thats because of who I work for. I think most companies are planning on keeping the money to offset future costs. That would be a benefit.

Health care costs are going to rise. They will keep going up forever. The idea is to lower the cost curve. Thats the best we can hope for.

It is short sighted of you. There are many scenarios where you may need health insurance. Plenty of young people need to battle cancer. You could be driving down the road and a drunk runs a red light and your in the hospital with brain trauma when your head hits the steering wheel. etc etc

One of the major problems with the current system is those who say I don't need insurance then one of the events I mentioned above happens and its our tax $'s that pay for their care.

If he came home with 2 D's and an F, that's 3 fingers (and this was a big dude). Does that sound hideous and disgusting? Absolutely. Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.
