I guess this is where that no preexisting illness clause comes into play. Be a bum, wino, drug addict, it doesn't matter you get the same access (if not better) to health care as do the responsible hard working taxpayers. Remember the story of the grasshopper and the ant. In Obama's world it ends with the grasshopper eating the ant.
I’m waiting for Jesus to show up and use the magnifying glass on the grasshopper...: )

I am surprised they are going out to find and enroll them.

(Choice is an illusion created between those with power - and those without)
You might wonder at the administration’s belief that the majority of the poor will eventually enrol via a computer site.
I’d bet that many if not most are not computer literate and those who are probably have to fight over computer time at the local library with those wanting to see porno.
