"The "real kicker" would be the requirement the uninsured pay for their own healthcare WITHOUT insurance. And they can't get insured until the next registration period. So, it gets real expensive, real fast without insurance and you really need more than just the minimum healthcare. "

for most of the young, they don't worry about that.

If you live in a place where you can 'change states' you can now immediately sign up for ObamaKAre.

Also, for most of the youngsters....even if they break a wrist..that's only $1500 or so.....and that is cheaper than paying $350/month year in and year out. Flu shots are $20..... an annual physical would run you $300 or so.....

It will be a LOT cheaper for youngsters to even pay $1000 a year in 'tax penalties' and still pay their medical care for MOST of them.

If they are in an accident, they show up at the emergency room and get treated.

The kicker will be when the employer has to withhold $100 or $200 a month in 'tax penalties' (delinquencies) from the workers paychecks and the youngsters start screaming about 'where is my money'!
