A scientific theory can be testable and repeatable and quite often is. If no more than 1 in 10.000 experiments show results opposite the theory, it is considered a scientific fact.
1 in 10.000 is where we have drawn the line, of course you can put your line wherever you want to, but at some point i think it's valid to base your beliefs and actions upon something with a ridiculously high chance of being true.

The thing is it is not universal healthcare, it is a mandate to have insurance to pay for healthcare.
You have to buy the insurance, and if you are lucky your employer will pay a portion of it. Many companies are now hiring people part time only to avoid paying it.
Failure to have insurance that meets the requirements makes you have to pay a yearly tax. That tax will be $700 every year, and the insurance can be just as much if not more.

Politicians are corrupt, man. Not saying they aren't. I'm not surprised at all that they want to keep everything that they like in their old program. But, I really don't think that the Congress would intentionally pass something in detriment to the American people.
but, yeah, politicians are asshats

Except you are thinking of it as "I'm giving this money to someone who is too lazy to work for it" instead of what it actually is which is "I, and everyone else who pays taxes, am throwing this money into a giant communal fund which will be drawn from in the case that I, or anyone else get's injured."
Very few people are going to use it who are too lazy to work.
But you know who will use it?
Blue collar workers and their families who get injured and can't afford medical bills allowing them to recover, go back to work and make money which they can put back into the economy. Instead of getting injured, working themselves into an early grave trying to pay off bills/being permanently disabled and unable to work meaning that they then live off of social security/welfare.

I'd like to start by saying I blame both parties for their lack of compromise that has caused this, no one party is to blame. Now, on to the rant.
This will be the first tax that is mandatory simply for existing in the USA. Sales Tax? Don't buy anything (Grow your own food or something idk). Income Tax? Don't work (maybe you have inheritance or you can be completely self-sufficient). Property Tax? Don't own property. ObamaCare (Tax)? Either buy (meaning money out of your pocket) one of our plans or we will fine you.
As for his first point, how can you pay less than $0? He is saying he currently has no health care(presumably he doesn't find it top priority as he doesn't have any dependents to think about and is in good health) and thus pays no money. With the new plan, he is forced to either purchase healthcare or be fined a percentage of his income (or $75 but only if it is LESS than the former) that increases with each year he chooses not purchase it.
The other big complaint with Obamacare is that it requires companies with 50+ employees to provide health insurance to full-time workers only. This has already caused a lot of companies to make full-time workers part-time and just higher more part-time workers. My mom got her hours reduced to part-time by Kirkland's last month presumably due to this. These people now have fewer work hours and to add insult to injury are forced to buy their own health insurance or be fined.
Just my 2 cents.

The taxes would have to raise and a lot of places would have to fire employees to stay afloat since they couldn't cover the cost of paying insurance for all of them. Basically the money to fund UHC would have to come from some where and no one wants to pay it and there are some people who believe that the Govt. shouldn't be able to basically force people into paying for health insurance.
