That George Wallace quote made the column worth reading.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

The "Big Con" is going to be run by the healthy and young, who will no doubt figure out that in order to avoid paying the fines or the high premiums, all they have to do is raise their withholding exemptions with their employers and then refuse to buy insurance until or unless they suddenly need it.  The law says that IRS cannot collect the fines for not being insured except through nonpayment of tax refunds.

This will cause big revenue problems and big spending problems.  The tax collections will go down as people stop overpaying on withholding, and the spending goes way, way up as the only people signed up for Obamacare will be those who are subsidized or have expensive pre-conditions.  And once these people know they are covered, watch how much more often they go to the doctor and demand the latest prescription drugs.

Unsustainable, that's what it is.

All good and correct observations massadvj.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

That can be remedied with a stroke of a pen.   And with Obama? 

He never follows the law as written/intended.

Yes, it can.  But there are always loopholes.  Lawmakers build them in to keep lawyers employed.

I figure that Obama will make it illegal to increase/enhance the number of exemptions checked on a W-4 form.  And financially painful for those that owe.
