“I actually made it through this morning at 8:00 A.M. I have a preexisting condition (Type 1 Diabetes) and my income base was 45K-55K annually I chose tier 2 “Silver Plan” and my monthly premiums came out to $597.00 with $13,988 yearly deductible!!! There is NO POSSIBLE way that I can afford this so I “opt-out” and chose to continue along with no insurance.
I received an email tonight at 5:00 P.M. informing me that my fine would be $4,037 and could be attached to my yearly income tax return. Then you make it to the “REPERCUSSIONS PORTION” for “non-payment” of yearly fine. First, your driver’s license will be suspended until paid, and if you go 24 consecutive months with “Non-Payment” and you happen to be a home owner, you will have a federal tax lien placed on your home. You can agree to give your bank information so that they can easy “Automatically withdraw” your “penalties” weekly, bi-weekly or monthly! This by no means is “Free” or even “Affordable.”

Hartford resident Brendan Mahoney, 30, said In 2011 and 2012, he was on a school-sponsored health plan costing about $2,400 a year. That was too expensive, so this year he took out his own coverage: a high-deductible, low-premium plan that cost about $39 a month through a UnitedHealthcare subsidiary.
Mahoney said signing up for Obama-care took him about 20 minutes and that by filling out the application online, he discovered he was eligible for Medicaid. So, beginning next year, he won't pay any premium at all.

For every Mahoney out there, that gets free insurance somebody else has to pay for it. Nothing is free.

So basically a good chunk of reasoning behind this "reform" was to capture people who have not bothered to enroll in welfare benefits that have been available to them all along?

I'll bet they will be counted in the success of the ACA, but their Medicaid benefits will conveniently be left out of the cost tally of obamacare.
Duh

This report also doesn't mention how "Brendan"s current $39/month premium would've become a $250/month premium had he not been eligible for Medicaid...

Just another REDISTRIBUTION of wealth. The rich ( who worked to get what they have) now will pay for the ones that choose to live for free. Taking from the rich and giving to the poor. Soon there will be no one willing to work, all will expect a handout. Shame on Obamacare.

This is pure BS and that is it. The tax for not having coverage is 95 dollars or 1 percent of your income which ever is more and they can't take your home or put a lien on it.
http://obamacarewatch.org/primer/individual-m...
Penalties

Beginning in 2014, the federal government will impose new fines on citizens and legal residents who do not obtain government-approved insurance. Those without insurance will pay a tax that is the greater of a flat fee, or a percentage of family income. The flat fee will be phased in over several years. In 2014, the penalty will be $95 per adult in an uninsured household, increasing to $325 in 2015, then to $695 in 2016, after which it will increase annually in line with consumer inflation. For uninsured children, the fine will be half the amount applied to uninsured adults. If greater, households pay 1 percent of their income in 2014, 2 percent in 2015, and 2.5 percent in 2016 and thereafter in lieu of the flat per person fee.

This is from the IRS own web site.

25. What happens if I do not have minimum essential coverage or an exemption, and I cannot afford to make the payment with my tax return?

The IRS routinely works with taxpayers who owe amounts they cannot afford to pay. The law prohibits the IRS from using liens or levies to collect any payment you owe related to the individual responsibility provision, if you, your spouse or a dependent included on your tax return does not have minimum essential coverage. However, if you owe a shared responsibility payment, the IRS may offset that liability against any tax refund you may be due.

I think we should get rid of the AFA but tax all the fat republican by the pound to cover health care for everyone. Most of the people that need it are fat ass southerners anyway eating to much kfc and getting heart attacks or diabetes.
My Conclusion

To Joseph and Sherri

The penalty is 2.5% of any household income above the level at which you are required to file a tax return. That level is currently $9,500 per person and $19,000 per couple. The penalty on any income above that is 2.5%. So the penalty can get expensive quickly if you make a lot of money.

If you make $55,000 then the penalty is $1375.00 (times 3 people in family)$4125.00

The penalties for not getting insurance under the affordable care act are TAXES. The Supreme Court said so. All penalties will be added to your TAX bill at the end of the year. If you do not pay your TAXES the IRS will put a lien against your home. “THAT’S A FACT JACK”

Tell us now how those that are unemployed, or are barely making it on a part time job, or those that can barely manage to scrape up these premiums for healthcare are going to be able to pay the 5000 dollar deductible before this great insurance will pay anything or how they will find the money to pay the fines that our so called concerned government has forced upon those that can afford it the least. Why has the government imposed fines before creating jobs so the fines could be paid? How much longer can those that can afford good insurance be able to keep paying their premiums that have doubled and tripled? Why is Obama's name on this healthbill when he will not contribute one penny to it? Why have they excluded themselves if it is so good for America? Why won't the Democrat party answer some of these questions so fat a%% southern a$$es and everyone else can understand the repercussions? Why?

And how exactly did you put in all the same things I did. Do you have inside access to the system and can pull my personal information to re-enter it. I don't think so! You have no idea what you're talking about.

I have healthcare Insurance through my employer but just for fun I checked on Obama-care.
If I had to switch to Obama-care it would cost me an additional $124 a month for a family of three.
That figure does not include adding in my medical pre-conditions. And even at the silver level the insurance is nowhere near as good.

No one benefits from Obama-care! The poor already have healthcare; Medicaid, The Health Dept. does child immunizations and checkup's for free. No hospital can or would turn away a sick person. This is not about Healthcare.
Democrats claim that these free services are a burden on the taxpayers and Obama-care is going to fix all that. I say the working taxpayer is still going to pay for all these free services and added to that will be all the government expenses of running Obama-care.

I know a very well off family who does not pay for insurance. They go to the e.r when they are sick. This family lives in a 500,000.00 home and vacations to paris every summer. They dont "waste" money on insurance cause they can go to the e.r, lie about their income and let the tax payers pay for their medical care. Guess you think this is a good thing. DUH!

Why, Why cant we get an answer from the Democratic implemented healthcare policy which would be better named Democare?. Are the questions too hard? Have we touched a nerve? Let us guess, you haven't read what's in the bill yet, have you?

And how exactly is Obama-care going to change that? If they are going to lie then they are still going to get free healthcare at the E.R. Those 1600 new IRS agents are not going to catch anywhere near all the fraud that will go on. It’s actually going to be a lot worse.
