Migraines are not at all funny for the people who get them.

ObamaCare is not free.
A lot of people think that ObamaCare is free because their concept of universal healthcare is “free healthcare.” Universal healthcare is a term that politicians use because they sound better than “a compulsory insurance mandate.” Universal healthcare is different in every country and it’s not very well understood by Americans, but the important thing to understand or know is that ObamaCare is a “compulsory insurance act.” Healthcare is not free. Everyone is required to have buy insurance, so everyone is supposed to have “affordable healthcare coverage.”
ObamaCare is a law that requires compulsory or mandatory insurance – not healthcare.
We are all required to buy insurance that is subsidized by our employers and/or possibly the government. Employers are only required to pay up to 60% of the cost of insurance premiums. Thus, you’re still going to need to pay for the rest of the insurance cost.
