I'm not sure how exactly this is supposed to help the situation:

Fines proposed for going without health insurance

When I was fortunate enough to have an individual plan that I paid for myself, I paid about the same per month that they're proposing to fine people per year. So if you're poor, and the fines are less than insurance, you're still going to be uninsured. You'll just be poorer from the fines... that makes senses. If you do get sick, you'll be able to pay even less of your bills, forcing hospitals to absorb more costs and sending people into bankruptcy quicker... Who thinks this is a good idea?

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
