Forcing individuals to purchase health care from the choices we were given was so incredibly demeaning. We were made to feel as though we couldn't think for ourselves - that Uncle Barry had to tell us what kind of insurance we could get. And then lie to us about coverage and tax breaks plus - my personal favorite- getting punished twice if you ended up not having it because you couldn't afford it: once because they took away the tax break they told you that you were getting when you signed up so you could almost pay the premium, and then when doing your taxes finding out you didn't qualify so they denied it and you had to pay it anyway AND got taxed, and then because you couldn't afford it the next year you got penalized! So my opinion? Trash the whole thing and start over.
