You have got to be freakin' kiddin. But I am afraid they are not. This is one of the greatest examples of why Obama is President.

You have the largest tax increase in the history of this nation taking effect in 8 months and almost half of the population does not even know it is a law.

Unfu--ing believable.

‘Obamacare’ Poll Finds 42% of Americans Unaware It’s Law

By Sarah Parnass
Apr 30, 2013 4:03pm

A new poll finds that many Americans are confused about the health care overhaul legislation commonly called “Obamacare.”

The Kaiser Family Foundation released results of a non-partisan study today finding more than 40 percent did not even know the law was in place.

“Four in ten Americans (42%) are unaware that the ACA [Affordable Care Act] is still the law of the land,” the report says,“including 12 percent who believe the law has been repealed by Congress, 7 percent who believe it has been overturned by the Supreme Court and 23 percent who say they don’t know enough to say what the status of the law is.”

The survey showed public opinion on Obamacare is at its second-lowest rating in the past two years.
Less than half – 35 percent – of adults viewed the ACA favorably, whereas 40 percent said they viewed it unfavorably. Another 24 percent said they did not know or refused to answer.

Democratic Sen. Max Baucus, one of the original crafters of the bill, earlier this month predicted a chaotic implementation process for the Affordable Care Act.“I just see a huge train wreck coming down,” Baucus, D-Mont., said.

One of the dumbest things I have heard lately. So many people saw this coming it is not even funny. If one of the original writers did not see what a huge bureaucratic nightmare he was building, we are in trouble. People like us who never read the bill knew this was coming. I need to contact family and friends in Montana and urge them to vote this dumb ass out.

Sheep lead by fools.

It has to collapse upon itself and then be rebuilt.

King Barry the Most High is just the Messiah we need to collapse it.

It is not "Elected" Officials as much as it is the Entrenched Dependents with Government Jobs. How many New Dependents have been hired to Operate this Boondoggle?

If you are referring to the personal mandate, this is how much it is:
In 2014, the annual penalty will be $95 per adult and $47.50 per child, up to a family maximum of $285 or 1 percent of family income, whichever is greater.
And this ONLY applies to people who CHOOSE not to be covered by health insurance - most of America is already covered and people up to 400% of the poverty line get subsidies and lower cost insurance through state-run pools.
Now explain to me how this is the "biggest single tax increase ever".
My thanks to Niether and cant for providing you with correct information.

Too bad you choose to blindly follow the edict of your rulers who have told you what to believe, even in the face of evidence to the contrary.

From the written opinion by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts:

"The Affordable Care Act is constitutional in part and unconstitutional in part The individual mandate cannot be upheld as an exercise of Congress's power under the Commerce Clause," Roberts wrote. "That Clause authorizes Congress to regulate interstate commerce, not to order individuals to engage it. In this case, however, it is reasonable to construe what Congress has done as increasing taxes on those who have a certain amount of income, but choose to go without health insurance. Such legislation is within Congress's power to tax."

From the Leftist rag, your bible, The Huffington Post:

"Roberts found that the mandate was supportable under Congress' taxing authority, but not under the Commerce Clause."

Now, go back to playing with yourself. At least that is a task you can handle.

I see you provided no proof or links to support your presumably made up numbers. And much like the slewpid one, refuse to accept any information offered up as something to back up claims. Tell me, has anyone ever actually seen you and the slewpid one (allegedly from Seattle) in the same room together at the same time?

I have a Radical Concept for you.

It has been asserted, based upon logic and common sense, that It will continue to cost Money, to operate Healthcare in Amerika.

Adding 33 Million "Poor" Citizens, who, based on logic have no Money,(thus Collectivization under "Obamacare") will cost Trillion of Dollars that are not currently spent on Healthcare.

So, Rocket Scientist, it is clear that adding 33 Million Dependents to ANYTHING will cost lottsa pennies, where will the Trillions of Dollars come from if not from the Productive Citizens that have dollars to be confiscated via the IRS to pay for the 33 Trillion Victims "Free Shaat"...(Crickets)...YES ! From the Largest Tax Increase in Amerikan History!

I stand to be corrected.

If you have found the Mythical Money Tree that was used to purchase you Iddiot Sheeple in the 2012 Erection, reveal where it is.

Then, maybe those of us carrying you Sheeple now, can get a break and not be forced to pay for your Healthcare by the Power of the Federal Government, along with being responsible and caring for our Families Healthcare.

We the Productive and Responsible, are not "entitled" to the Constitutional Benefits that you Sheeple receive in our new "Separate and Unequal Democracy"!

I like Mob Rule, Demokrat Style 2008.

Here is some additional information:
http://saludify.com/health-tax-penalty-2014/
The Supreme Court upheld the individual mandate as a tax, and therefore the IRS is responsible for collecting it. By the year 2016, the health tax penalty for not purchasing health insurance hits $695 a year or 2.5 percent of annual income, whichever number is higher. Beyond that time frame, the IRS will collect monies based on cost-of-living adjustments.
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates that by 2016, approximately 6 million people (2 percent of the U.S. population) will be subject to health tax penalties related to the ACA individual mandate. Penalties will only be applied to those who can afford getting insurance but opt not to. Those who cannot afford the health insurance, won’t be penalized.
Others who will be exempt from the health tax penalty, according to Health Reform Source from the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, include:
And who do you think will pick up the tab for these
Why, the middle income families and individuals.
undocumented immigrants
people of certain religious beliefs
members of Native American tribes
individuals with an income below $9,350
families with a collective income below $18,700
anyone who must pay more than 8 percent of annual income toward insurance after employer contributions

So you still think it is right to get 100% free government paid medical (aka welfare) while it is wrong to make AFFORDABLE (not free) health care available to hard working Americans?
ROFLMAO!!!!
Oh Oh....The No Integrity, Not to Bright, Poster from St Paul has been forced by the Big Kids to tuck his Pee Pee between his legs and become the little gurl that he has always been.

RUN Susie, RUN!

(We the People of this Constitutional Republic, value you Dependent Sheeple who have declared for us what is...... "AFFORDABLE (not free) health care"........ Go ahead and stick that pee pee into anything you want. When your choices result in the diseases common to you Debauched Deviants, and you are in a need of Healthcare to save you from your choices, your neighbors are only to happy to take wealth from our Families in sacrifice to care for you!.......You f'ing iddiot!)

You have no clue. You are just spouting Faux News talking points that are totally untrue. If you had numbers, you would have posted them by now.
Gawd you make this to easy!

NO YOU provide the "Numbers".

Depending on which numbers you use from the Collectivisation Process, that was used to create this 8000 Page Law, you will see a spread of Trillions of Dollars.

That is the Point Iddiot!

There are no numbers that can be trusted because the Forced Collectivization of 1/6th of the Amerikan Economy is not known..."You gotta read the bill to know what is in it" Nan Palosi...... Stop pretending that YOU know anything.

The only variable that is known is that we the people will be adding 33 million of you and Slewblomkin, to the Dependents suckling off the Tax Rolls, will constitute the Largest tax Increase in History!

Hey Dumbo,

Over a month ago, I shared on here what was told to us by our insurance broker.

Our employee medical insurance contract comes up for renewal each April 1st. This year, we will see a very minimal incease.

However, according to our insurance carrier, our employees will see between an 80% and 100% incease as of January 1, 2014 directly due to the implementation of Obamacare.

That means our employees will see as much as a $700 per month increase in their health care premiums.

"...directly as a result of the implementation of the ACA."

This has been publicized extensively in the past 45 days. If you are "in the business", you already know this factioid, right?
