"And it would impose a requirement that nearly all Americans obtain insurance or pay monetary penalties for failing to do so."Emphasis mine. Does it mean that we're in the clear? It's obvious that the present situation in the United States is horrendous and something must be changed. I'm not interested in the details of the proposed law, except for how it affects me. I have no right to interfere in such internal American affairs.
I'm an American citizen but don't live in the United States and have no plans to do so. I visit family there and always purchase Israeli Travel Insurance, so I'll be covered if I need medical care. If I'll be threatened with a fine, aka "monetary penalty" for not having an American Health Insurance Policy, I just won't go to the states. And I'm not the only one who will look for other places to meet family and friends.
If anyone if anyone is familiar with the nitty-gritty of the bill passed in the Senate, please let me know in the comments here. Thanks
