It was many moons ago but I knew a few of the people involved in this famous case.

For whatever reason, Texas was once a Mecca for Big Tits, Big Tobacco, Big Asbesto:happy:sis, and Big Pharma Mega settlements. I haven't kept up and I would guess that's no longer the case.

East Texas has become a haven for patent litigation.

Yes, I did hear something about that.

Most, if not all of the guys I know are older, dead or retired.

I did read that a huge proportion of the patent cases are frivolous or basically legal extortion. Time for a young bunch to carry the torch. smile.gif

Yeah, the Rocket Docket. I have some friends who do that type of stuff. Patent trolling is scumbag stuff but there's $$ in it.

Has anyone considered the possibility that young people simply won't sign up on the exchanges? There goes any hope for "reasonably priced" policies.

Damn, no one has ever considered that LOL

You're in your 20s and in a member of a state union, is that correct conne?

Do you have any buddies that are in their 20s and are entrepreneurial ( or perhaps unhireable by a big Co, or the Government. ). How do they feel.

It was a long time ago, but when I was in my 20s, I was bulletproof, and would probably have paid the penalty ( or not paid at all ). I don't think I would have purchased a policy to subsidize the old geezers.

Of course the above applies only to a minority of 20-30s I would guess.

We have many 20-30s here on SF I think. Of those that won't be part of a group plan, are not with an entity like the military or the government which provides healthcare, and are not gonna be their on parents policy. How many of you 20-30s are gonna pay for ACA, and how many are gonna pay the penalty?

Of course, don't be surprised if there are more delays of things like the imposition of the mandate on small businesses, or the imposition of the ACA fine, er I mean penalty.

Politics is politics after all.

Yes, I get free health care. I have some friends who are certainly the entrepreneurial type (one works for a start-up, the other one does coding/other stuff freelance) and I'd be shocked if either of them wanted to pay for insurance.

The penalty will be another huge political problem if the administration allows it to take effect. I have doubts that they will.

I don't think I had healthcare until I was north of 30. Never saw the point--- I was healthy as a horse and stubborn as a mule. All I cared about was having a little extra walkin-around money. I do not think anything would change now, as it looks like paying the tax is cheaper than paying for healthcare.

But what if you come down with something serious and it's too late to go sign up for insurance?

Oh, yeah, it's called health "insurance" now.
