    however, especially the refusing medicaid option.  I have a Republican friend in North Carolina that constantly complains about how poor he is and how the ACA will hurt his family, saying that he is resigned to paying the fine.  He has taken to Facebook to complain about this a lot.

    Three things that amaze me about this, however. First, he would be eligible for Medicaid, but does not blame the GOP for denying him access to it.  Second, he is still applying for medicaid for his kids, even though GOP actions increase the likelihood they won't get it. Third, he intends to pay the fine, even though it is likely he is poor enough that he would be exempted form the fines (which anyone living below certain income levels would be exempt from the fine).

    The only thing we have to fear is fear itself - FDR. Obama Nation. -6.13 -6.15
