    If people are too stubborn to take advantage of the benefits of Obamacare just because they've been told they're supposed to hate Obamacare, then put it down to evolution's way of weeding out the dummies.   The human race is starting to be choked off with stupid people, so if they'll kill themselves off with their own idiocy, that'll be beneficial to everyone.

      A big part of me applauds the idea of thinning the herd (i.e. cleaning out the gene pool), but we all know that these people will be the first ones to dial 911 when they're deathly ill or in an accident. They'll demand the best of care, and then complain that the hospital and doctors are driving them bankrupt. In the end, the hospital will simply pass on the costs to everyone with health insurance.

      Side note: Did you ever notice how the teabillies have an absolute hissy fit about raising taxes on big business, or raising the minimum wage, because the costs will simply be passed on to the consumer, but have no trouble at all with anti-Obamacare nut jobs passing on their healthcare costs to the rest of us? Isn't "Just use the emergency room" a Republican welfare program, where we transfer income from us hard workin' Mercans to the unworthy freeloaders?  I'm just sayin'...

      In their eyes there's something lacking; what they need's a damn good whacking.

      because they're very likely reproduced by the time it becomes important for them to take advantage of the benefits of Obamacare.

        of living long enough to reproduce. For an intensely social species like us, with an extremely long childhood, it depends also on being around long enough to help one's children and grandchildren succeed in life.
