The non-choice is actually thrust upon the taxpayer, as those who choose not to pay for coverage are inflicting their choice onto that taxpayer when they seek free care at a MA hospital emergency room.
The consequence of no insurance is $1 billion + a year to the taxpayer.
It is called Medicaid for those that can not afford health insurance. Obama care is not going to change that except to put millions on the rolls. What good does another layer of government meddling in the health care business do. In 10 years unless mandated care is not repealed, I predict single payer will become a reality. Costs will explode cause like I said the gov. can not run a whorehouse efficiently. That goes for the state of MA also.
Obamacare and MASScare is unconstitutional. No law that I know of forces you to buy a product. If the government can tell you have to buy health care, it can tell you what kind of car, house, toilet paper, etc. etc. to buy. Defense of this abomination is way off base.
