The plan calls for all the deadbeat liberals demanding free stuff to pay for insurance or they get fined through the IRS. They don't have jobs, they don't have money, they cannot pay the fines. No money is going to be paid into the plan. It will collapse rapidly, and the only way to make the plan work is to deny care and allow patients to die quickly.

Since most of the data in post-election polling has offered little beyond a parade of ugly news, here's a glimmer of hope from Gallup:

For the first time in Gallup trends since 2000, a majority of Americans say it is not the federal government's responsibility to make sure all Americans have healthcare coverage. Prior to 2009, a majority always felt the government should ensure healthcare coverage for all, though Americans' views have become more divided in recent years...Republicans, including Republican-leaning independents, are mostly responsible for the drop since 2007 in Americans' support for government...
