This confuses me. If you are on any type of welfare and will not work for a living, I thought this was free. Disability, the some 8 million, don't pay a cent. When you take this apart, it looks like damn near half of the Country don't pay a cent and the rest of us take it up the butt. Right or am I wrong.
All of that goes to fund the bureaucracy and subsisize the premiums of most middle and lower class people that purchase insurance through the yet to be established exchanges. The kicker is that the penalty structure encourages employers to shed coverage and not cover new employees. The result would be a per employee penalty that is a small fraction of the subsidy that employee will qualify for. When more that the planned for number of people request that subsidy the cost of the program explodes.
