    think we should just own it, and name it.  Damn straight, the law includes a "free loader tax penalty."  And, the "free loader tax penalty" will be deducted from their tax refunds until they pay their fair share.

    I think Pelosi almost got it, but it would be interesting to see if having even 10 Dems hit the air waves with this message for even 2 days might not get the whole things deep sixed as a supposed "issue."

      enjoy the benefits of Obamacare, such as lower rates via exchanges, no preexisting condition exclusion, no lifetime caps, senior drug benefit, free preventive care, kids on policy until 26 etc.  Stress the benefits but couple with penalty on free riders just as Romney devised it.
