Audrey Glemba, a 49-year-old triathlon runner, became a medically-retired police officer collecting worker's compensation for an injury she claimed prevented her from working. Taxpayers in her city are now paying her $508 a month, in addition to medical retirement benefits.

Government Minimums Hurt The Poor

By imposing a minimum amount of insurance coverage, Obamacare limits the freedom of Americans to make their own choices.
