Since almost half the entire population is too "poor" to pay income tax now, who in their right mind expects this "tax" to be collected?<quoted text>
Only the penalty attached to the mandate for failure to comply is a tax.
"Individuals have until March 31st, 2014 to go without health insurance without being assessed a penalty.
After that date, lacking health insurance will result in a tax penalty on the 2015 IRS tax forms."
What are you going to do? Lie on your income tax?(Probably wouldn't be the first time.)
Or, perhaps you are one of those whose health insurance would represent more than 8% of your income. In that case, you have nothing to worry about...you're exempt.
Granted, there is a loophole in only allowing the IRS to assess interest charges and roll over the past due amounts from year to year. However, there is little doubt that aspect of the Affordable Care Act will be amended in the future. In the meantime, amounts due will continue to accrue, WITH INTEREST calculated daily. Like I said, the IRS WILL get their money...even if they have to collect it from your heirs.
The bottom line is, the half of the population paying all the taxes now will have to pay more because ObamaKare is nothing more than another Marxist wealth redistribution program.
ObamaKare is nothing more than just another of the Democrats' Marxist welfare programs, and it will have the same effect as every other Marxist welfare program they ever managed to get written into law - disastrous.
