Pulling a Zimmerman is stalking someone wen they were not not not supposed to and told not to by the police.

I can tell you have never bothered to read the Affordable Care Act. Read it and then get back to me.
"Those who choose not to purchase insurance will have to pay a tax "PENALTY" unless they qualify for an exemption. Exemptions from ObamaCare's tax "PENALTY" mandate are available to a number of Americans.
About ObamaCare Tax Exemptions
The mandate's exemptions cover a variety of people, including: members of certain religious groups and Native American tribes; undocumented immigrants (who are not eligible for health insurance subsidies under the law); incarcerated individuals; people whose incomes are so low they don't have to file taxes (currently $9,500 for individuals and $19,000 for married couples); and people for whom health insurance is considered unaffordable (where insurance premiums after employer contributions and federal subsidies exceed 8% of family income).

Neither have you.

The first bunch don't qualify for the insurance program in the first place.

Individuals who are so dirt poor they don't file taxes cannot be taxed; however, these people DO qualify for Medicaid.

The second group of individuals already have insurance-re-read it.

These exemptions are not at all what hyped them to be. They really do not give a pass for people to refuse to buy insurance and the only group which gets a pass is those who could apply for Medicaid but didn't --no big surprise.

One thing I did notice is that poster Galt's area, California's so called inland empire is in shtsville regards physicians with only about 70 per 100,000 residents vs double that in San Diego and nearly triple that in the San Francisco region. That's likely for the lack of hospitals there.
You're anti Obamacare only because you're anti Obama.
Tweaks?? Ahh yes you mean lies to cover what obama lied about yesterday right.
This thing realtime is called communism. Government forcing people to spend their own money for the good of all. Go look at the goals of communism.
I am most certainly against having to pay for myself and everyone else's health care.
The moochers just get bolder, besides this deathcare does nothing for the little people. It just takes from people to give to other people and the people obama promised to help are still in, how did you put it, "shtsville". Hell we all are gonna be before this man is out of office.
I have always said I would hate Obama, his socialist/communist roots and his lies if he were green so stop that right now.
Turns out he is not the magic negro the black writer said he was huh.

No one has read the Affordable Care Act except a hoard of lawyers licking their chops.

However, the majority of young people are rejecting it.

Others are finding signing up too confusing or the costs too expensive.

How is it going to float without 7 million people willingly paying the higher costs?

What Obamacare and the IRS can and cannot do...

The only way for the IRS to collect the fee for not having health insurance, if you choose not to pay it, is for them to withhold the money you would get back from the IRS after filing your income tax returns. The IRS cannot enforce the Individual Shared Responsibility provision with jail time, liens, or any other of typical methods of collection.

So as I PAY taxes every year and receive NO money back. IRS has no means to collect the tax.

I re-read this and yes it gives an exemption than in theory is NOT plausible if the employer is paying half the cost.

However, these would be some of the 30 million who will still be uninsured-before Obamacare and after makes no difference.

PS how dirt poor must IDIOT be to pay only $51 a month?

Not true. Millions of people residing in Republican states that did not expand Medicaid will be without health insurance. They make too much to qualify for Medicaid but are below the threshold to apply to the exchange. Under the terms of the AFA, they will not be assessed any penalty/mandate/tax as a consequence of same.

""Russia Will Continue Helping
Iran With Its Nuclear Program
6-23-3
(AFP)-- Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that his country will continue helping Iran to develop its nuclear programme, despite international opposition, it has emerged.
In an interview with the BBC conducted on Friday, Putin was forthright about an issue which has caused widespread concern, especially in Washington.
"We won't let the issue of nuclear proliferation be used to stop Russian companies dealing with Iran," he said in an extract of the interview on the BBC's website.
The interview, for BBC television's Breakfast with Frost programme, was due to be shown in full later Sunday.
Russia has drawn US ire for building Iran's first nuclear reactor at Bushehr and for insisting that the oil-rich country is not seeking to develop a nuclear weapons program.""
Your hero Putin says Iran is not seeking to develop a nuclear weapons program.
I'm sure you Teabags believe Putin, being commies yourselves!!
Do you ever think before you type?? Are you even capable of the thought process?? It would appear not, based on your denying what 99% of people accept as fact.

Hundreds of thousands of people have taken to the streets in the Ukrainian capital Kiev seeking the resignation of the government for refusing a deal on closer ties with the European Union.

Protesters, who oppose a customs union with Russia, toppled a statue of Lenin and smashed it with hammers.

President Viktor Yanukovych has said he shelved the EU deal after Russian opposition.

Protest leaders have given him 48 hours to dismiss the government.

As another big crowd calls for closer relations with Europe, no resolution to the stand-off between the pro-EU protesters and the Ukrainian government is in sight.

The country's opposition is sticking to its demand for the replacement of what amounts to the entire ruling structure: the president, parliament and cabinet.

But President Viktor Yanukovych is not moving an inch either, forging ahead with plans for a "strategic partnership with Russia".

The government has state power on its side, but the protesters have a no less potent weapon: people power.

Tensions continue to mount, with two events on Sunday only adding to the strained atmosphere: an announcement by state security service officials that they are looking into an alleged attempt to seize power, and the toppling of Kiev's Lenin statue.

Catherine Ashton, the EU foreign policy head, will have her work cut out when she arrives in Kiev later this week to try to defuse the situation.

As darkness fell, protesters were blockading key government buildings with cars, barricades and tents.

Witnesses said a group of protesters toppled the statue of Soviet leader Lenin at the top of Shevchenko Boulevard using metal bars and ropes. Then they began smashing it up with hammers.

Others stood by chanting "glory to Ukraine".

Correspondents say the statue has symbolic importance as it underlines Ukraine's shared history with Russia.

One opposition MP, Andriy Shevchenko, tweeted: "Goodbye, Communist legacy!"

Prime Minister Mykola Azarov compared the toppling of the statue to the Taliban's destruction of the giant Buddhas of Bamiyan in Afghanistan in 2001, Interfax-Ukraine news agency reported.

"War on monuments is always barbarity," he said.

The BBC's David Stern says the attack on the statue has heightened tension in Kiev.
'A razor's edge'

In another development on Sunday, the Ukrainian Security Service said it was investigating some politicians on suspicion of what it called "actions aimed at seizing state power".

It did not name the politicians.

The European Commission has said EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton will travel to Ukraine this week "to support a way out of the political crisis".

The trigger was the government's decision not to sign a far-reaching partnership deal with the EU, despite years of negotiations aimed at integrating Ukraine with the 28-nation bloc. That decision was announced on 21 November.

Thousands of pro-EU Ukrainians poured onto the streets of the capital - on 24 November the crowd was estimated at more than 100,000. They urged President Viktor Yanukovych to cancel his U-turn and go ahead with the EU deal after all. But he refused, and the protests continue.

Anger with President Yanukovych has escalated, and now protesters are demanding that he and his government resign.

Probably the best-known among them internationally is Vitali Klitschko, a world heavyweight boxing champion turned opposition leader. He heads the Udar (Punch) movement and plans to run for president in 2015. Udar is campaigning for a "modern country with European standards" - that is, loosening ties with Russia and strengthening them with the EU.

An ultra-nationalist group called Svoboda (Freedom) is also protesting. Its leader, Oleh Tyahnybok, is second-from-left in the picture.

Between Mr Tyahnybok and Mr Klitschko stands Jaroslaw Kaczynski, Poland's former prime minister and now opposition leader. Historically Poland has vied with Russia for influence in Ukraine. Western Ukraine used to be part of Poland, and cultural and religious ties remain strong.

Other foreign sympathisers have turned up at the rallies. Among them is Russian opposition activist Pyotr Verzilov, husband of Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, one of the jailed members of punk band Pussy Riot.

One of the most important Ukrainian protesters is Arseniy Yatsenyuk, leader of the country's second biggest party, called Fatherland. He is an ally of former PM Yulia Tymoshenko, a former prime minister now in jail, who is an arch-rival of the president.
