    True. But they are mandating what these insurers have to cover and are doing so to the extreme, knocking people off policies they want and can afford. As of today 12/04/2013, do you realize that we have approximately 9 M less people insured than we did when Obamacare was passed? True stat. Bad economy and Obamacare cancelations. Thank President Pinochio.

    You got, same argument I've made on these very boards.

    In my case why should I pay for my wife to have maternity or birth control? I already paid to have her tubes tied.

    Furthermore, since it's unfair to charge men less than women for HC, even though they have far more utilization of services I think its unfair that men pay higher rates for Auto ins and we need to band together and put an end to this discriminating practice! ;)

    Keeping in mind that Romneycare is the model for Obamacare let's look at the enrollment pattern in Massachusetts

    If the administration thinks Obamacare rollout #s or even %s will be close to Massachusetts, they are more clueless than most would admit. Demographics in Taxachusetts are so dramatically different than USA. It is like comparing North Dakota to Mississippi.
