Freepers plan some civil disobedience but encounter some practical problems:
brivette explains the problem:
I’m disabled and on SSDI.MeganC seems to think states can opt out of the mandate:
We’re not buying it. Period. I imagine Wyoming will opt out of it anyway.EyeGuy is too sarcastic to actually protest:
I’m not buying sheat.Sarah Barracuda is already in compliance, but will maintain her ignorance in order to feel like a maverick:
I’m going to default on my mortgage, go on food stamps, declare bankruptcy, secure a disability settlement, and let honest, productive, private sector Americans support my dead-assed, lazy carcass.
Its the new American way.
My insurance is through Kaiser Permanente, had them for as long as I can remember, I will NEVER comply with Obamacare, Obama and his cronies can kiss my assRetired Greyhound explains that civil disobedience is just what the left wants you to do!
The more people refuse to comply, the more it bolsters the left’s argument for universal coverage. They will lump non-compilers in with the rest of the uninsured, and then force everyone into a single-payer system. In a sense, they’ve made is so that non-compliance plays right into their hands.
I buy my insurance on the private market. I do so for my own personal economic reasons.
I think the best action we can take is to elect conservatives and try to repeal or neuter Obamacare.
texaschick has a clever plan to go bankrupt via health expenses:
No, we won’t buy it. We can’t afford it, no matter what the SCOTUS says. We had to drop it this year when our payments went to 1050.00 a month, and that was just for my hubby. I don’t have any insurance. We pay out of pocket for his meds and doctor appointments.cuban leaf gets at the root of the problem:
Until this thing is fully and 100% repealed, I say we do all that we can to bankrupt our own Government; they obviously don’t have me and mine or yours in mind.
That’s pretty much my take as well. Taxable income is poison.
freeangel is totally going galt, not giving up!
I lost my job last year and this will stop me from looking any further.
The Duke has decided offshoring is patriotic dissent now:
I had ruled out moving myself and my company to some offshore location, but I’ll re-evaluate that. If I stay in the US then, if I’m carrying too many parasites on my back I’ll just “go Galt”... and maybe become a parasite myself.
lightman realizes God wants him to be a martyr:
Has anyone noticed the intersection of this decision—complete with its dire implications for religious liberty—with the feast of the 2nd Century Martyr Irenaeus of Lyons and the eve of the feast of the martyrdom of the great Apostles Peter and Paul?
GrandJediMasterYoda just buys in for unthinking defiance:
I will definately NOT BUY Fascist-O-care ™ ! I don't care if they steal everything I own and throw me in jail, I will NEVER bow down to tyranny! It's going to be very amusing if the foreign born Kenyan Marxist is unconstitutionally elected again and this goes into effect in 2014 because I know I am not the only one who will not bow down. Hey maybe if nobody obeys liberals will treat it like they do illegals..It's OK if everybody does it and therefore legal!
