Re: Obama Care

Hate to break it to y'all but most of the deal making already went down and if it hasn't it will go down behind the scenes...if you don't like Obamacare you're going to get screwed whether it is or isn't on C-SPAN. Enjoy.

Hope Nancy doesn't fold and makes the final bill more like the house bill.

Re: Obama Care

State Attorney Generals in many states, including Florida and South Carolina already have lawsuits prepared as soon as it passes to challenge it since it is unconstitutional. The Government CAN NOT force people to buy a product they do not want, also there are so many special interest and pet projects for individual states in the bill that were thrown in to benefit certain states and buy their Yes votes. In addition, there are many organizations ready to join in the legal actions to overturn it. Republicans are also preparing an almost immediate bill to repeal it which may actually get the votes to pass, because some of the Yes votes are hesitant support from Congressman who are going to get barraged from their constituents for their support and will easily change their minds and support the repeal in a last-ditch effort to save their political careers.

Even if it DOES pass, there is a good chance it will be repealed either legally by the court system or a Congressional vote to reverse it. Chris Dodd and a few other Democrats who supported it and had a hand in the creation of it have announced this week they're not going to run again. The 2010 election will not go well for Democrats (GOP polling shows a tie in MA for Ted Kennedy's seat!) who supported the Healthcare bill, so even if the GOP doesn't have the votes immediately to repeal it, they definitely will after the November elections. The American people will not stand for this forcing of a bad law down our throats. Once they're being forced into something they do not want by the Government and when they realize the impact of it on their wallets, that's when they'll stand up. The wallets of the people are the one thing that pushes them into political action faster than anything else.

President Obama and the crafters of the bill did something smart politically by collecting money for 3 years and not letting the impact of the Healthcare bill start taking effect until 2013, after the next General Election, but that will also provide more than sufficient time to get the unconstitutional bill repealed as it should be.

Even if it passes, it won't survive.

Re: Obama Care

Obama has become a known lier sense he took office and you could have a hugh list of lie after lie or promise after promise that he has broken sense in office. Everything he said he stood for he has now back away from but his sheep won't even admitt he is a lier even when you can show a clip of him doing so. Personaly I knew he was full of BS and was hiding his liberal agenda behine his lies of change. His voting record said he was a far left liberal and that what we got. Thats also whay so many Dems. are packing it in and not running for re-election in the next election because they no whats coming.

Then you can't legally register the car. Most state governments mandates that if you want to register a car then you have to have insurance. You can choose not to own a car, or to not register it, in which case you do not have to buy insurance. It is a subtle distinction, but valid none the less.

Re: Obama Care

You can register a car without ins. but you have to pay an additional fee to do so. The goverment does not force you to buy a car so no one can say they force them to buy ins. anyways.

Not in md, if you don't have proof of insurance they fine you $150 a day until you show proof of insurance. It is mandatory in md.

Re: Obama Care

Maryland’s Auto Insurance Rules and Regulations

Quote:
Maryland (MD) Mandatory Auto Insurance Minimums

* Liability: 20/40/15 = Bodily Injury Individual/Bodily Injury Total Per Accident/Property Damage
* Other Mandatory Insurance: Personal Injury Protection, Uninsured Motorist
* Regulations Regarding Proof of Insurance: Proof Required - When Obtaining Registration
* Penalties For Not Carrying Mandatory car insurance: Fine up to $1000 and up to one year in jail
I would say that is the government forcing you to IF you choose to register a car.
don't know how you opt out of the health care plan, choose not to live??? so the point is valid for health insurance, even it is not for car insurance.

Your right MD is one state that the only way you can not be forced to have car ins. is to not own a car.

Re: Obama Care

Most states force you to buy liability insurance if you own a car. Some states like VA allow you to not have liability insurance but they indirectly force you to have it by instituting an annual Uninsured Motor Vehicle fee of $500. Now when presented with this option any sane person would say to themselves why pay $500 and take on liability of damages done to another car when you can take that $500, add a few more bucks and get insurance for your car? UMV fee is a gimmick and a barrier for people who want to not insure their car...it's a soft individual mandate if you will.

Anywho, these lawsuits are a wast of tax payer money and merely serve as political grandstanding. No court will reject the individual mandate as that will open the floodgates for other lawsuits into Social Security and Medicare program. Precedent means something in court folks.
