What if you can not afford insurance and your employer doesn't offer it?

In reality they will have to be expanded to cover all the folks that are now getting fined. Where else are folks that can not afford insurance going to go? However, wasn't one of the rulings the SC handed down that Medicare would not be expanded and doesn't the healthcare bill cut $500B from medicaid? I may have my medi's reversed...

And the Government plans will be funded how?
