Similar Reactions to SS I & II

When Social Security was first forced upon self-responsible Americans, they said, "Life's too short to get too balled up over this," and they found a way to pay its tax and also a way to stay independent without it in retirement, knowing they would be paying more into it than getting out later.

Social Security II (the new healthcare) is now being forced upon many unwilling citizens. Such self-responsible folk are now doing a very similar thing our parents did with SS I. We are looking for ways to get by in spite of the new tax that will be levied and at the same time scheming about how to avoid ever needing a doctor again.
