    To briefly recap- the HCR requires everyone (except native americans, low income people, undocumented immigrants, followers of my cult, the grandfathered**, etc) to purchase health insurance

    Not done before because of all the gringo wannabees who have even less culturally in common with The Tribes than us. But for this payoff I am willing to take a little derision from full bloods.

      I'd rather pay a 2% "penalty" than 8% of my income to corporate CEOs and shareholders at insurance companies any day.
