How are people without jobs going to pay for insurance?They won't. They will be able to enroll in Medicaid, for which there is no cost other than out-of-pocket expenses to see a doctor or be hospitalized.
Those of us who work are already paying for you. And our great-great-grandchildren will still be paying 100 years from now. That is, if there is anything left of America by then.

Either you pay, or you don't! There is nothing in between. At the end of the day it's the figures of your tax returns that the government is going to use for public welfare...

Its the same way rents are paid. As a matter of fact, no one's going to buy any insurance, if they don't have the money to pay for their rents as well as insurance.
Keeping the soaring insurance cost in mind caused by the Obamacare, it is but natural to expect a larger number of uninsured people to increase our burden.
This fact was established the day Obamacare came into effect. Its poor mathematical calculations has made it very clear as to who has given the least thought to bring out such a useless piece of legislation.

Obamacare was largely intended to increase the number of people in America beholden to the government for their very existence. The number of Medicaid enrollees will increase dramatically, and these people will vote for those legislators they believe are going to keep them on the public health insurance welfare system -- to the demise of America.

I would not characterize the PPACA as entirely "useless." It does contain some workable provision, such as not allowing insurance companies to reject persons with preexisting conditions. But telling insurance companies they must charge standard rates for those persons is a bit over the top.
We see the effect of that in the higher premiums most person will pay going forward. The healthy will be forced to subsidize the unhealthy -- one way or another: higher premiums or higher taxes, or both.
In reality, both are inevitable.
