Of course Nancy Pelosi has read the entire 2,700 page Obamacare bill. You’ll like what’s in it too when you get around to reading it yourself, but if you don’t have the time for that now, the IRS has released an appetizer: 73 pages of regulations surrounding the Affordable Care Act and penalties for not complying, titled “Shared Responsibility Payment for Not Maintaining Minimum Essential Coverage.”

Wait, what does the Internal Revenue Service have to do with health care again? Everything. If you don’t like what you read, you’re welcome to attend a public hearing May 29.

    Hell yeah! Time to pay your Daddy if you voted for Obama.

    • BeeKaaay

      But they’re on Medicaid, so they won’t have to pay.

    Can’t wait for the Obama voters to pay their taxes this year….LOL

    • BeeKaaay

      Medicaid and Medicare beneficiaries don’t have to pay. Only the rest of us do.

      • Carolyn Kienast

        Even if you are on Medicaid, if you do not provide insurance for your children, you will be fined (in 2016), 347.50 per child, up to $2085!!

        • plumberskid

          If you’re on Medicaid, so are your children. Maybe you mean MediCare?

  • Lord Foggybottom

    Obama and all the other politicians won’t be complying with this, and neither will I. Up yours, your majesty!

    • Joseph Phillips

      I agree – if they’re not doing it, neither should we.

      • SilverWun

        They are leading from behind because that is where they MUST BE in order to keep ‘sticking it to us’.

        • Joseph Phillips

          Nice zinger! Made me chuckle about this not so funny thing… hopefully laughter is the best medicine.

          • http://twitter.com/who_me_too RadicalRebelWhoMeToo

            DITTO.

    • Joseph Phillips

      I agree – if they’re not doing it, neither should we.

    • EastValleyConservative

      They will confiscate it through your tax returns. You can’t even attempt to not comply with the exception of just not filing taxes. Not the religious groups exempt, my guess is that covers only ONE religion.

  • Michele Pullara Allen

    I can’t believe that the American healthcare system has come to this. If you want to see a picture of how “successful” Obamacare will be…..just look at our public schools. The government run those, too!! Why can’t the House just defund this monster??

    • http://www.facebook.com/parris.shepard Sirrap Drapehs

      They are all in on it…

    • Joseph Phillips

      Hell, just look at the post office or the DMV. Do you want those people in charge of your pending appendectomy?

      Have chat with someone getting care from the VA system. I have a friend that needs surgery on his leg (wounded in Honduras in the 80’s been having trouble ever since). They did some prep work in Sept 2012 and scheduled the surgery for July 2013. This is how they treat our greatest heros, guess how they will treat you. Government run health care at it’s finest.

      Because the Senate–and keep in mind, “when Congress won’t act, I will” is Barry’s newest (and unchallenged mostly) initiative.

  • George Washington Mclintock

    Not needed. Just tell me what the penalty is, and you’ll get it. I’ll never, ever have anything to do with govt healthcare. Live Free or Die.

    • kim

      agreed. pay the fine. nothing else. we can see our gov’t cannot find it’s own ass, letalone drug runners, gang bangers, criminals with guns or illegals. After a decade they will fix the law to adapt to those of us who refuse to get it

      • EastValleyConservative

        Paying the fine is merely their way of you funding those who got waivers. Your non-compliance will mean nothing to them. Nothing. We are unwilling cash cows, period.

  • TocksNedlog

    Yes folks, the greatest president since Lincoln, and greatest overall human being since Jesus, will now be taxing you for no other reason than this: you are a citizen and you are alive.

    • Ty Pryor

      Since when does being dead stop the taxes?

      • TocksNedlog

        Which brings up a good question:
        If the death panel decides to suspend
        life-extending care for you, but you manage to survive into the next calendar year, do you still have to send in that “additional payment”?

  • RonPaulKicksAss

    The government REALLY sucks! Throw them out!

  • RonPaulKicksAss

    The Federal Reserve is a PRIVATE bank which issues our currency, they pay $20.60 for a THOUSAND Federal Reserve Notes of any denomination, then they charge us full price plus interest. The IRS is their PRIVATE collection agency. End the Fed! End the IRS!

  • lana ward

    He wanted to be P. just so he would have the power to destroy America!!! What’s going to happen when all of his voters start turning on him too?? He won’t give a rip, he doesn’t have to face them again. Pray that he meets his maker SOON, to save America!!!

    • $36544368

      OMG…that would mean that Biden would be president! That might be even worse.

  • bonnieblue2A

    IRS estimates $20,000.00 premium per family/year for the lowest level Obamacare Bronze coverage. Wasn’t this marketed as Affordable Healthcare Act ?

    It has been reported Illegal aliens are being given Obamacare information pamphlets in their “welcome” packages.

    • kim

      They are told in welfare application packets that because they are here illegally they cannot get cash assistance. However they can have medicaid, Heap, WIC, public housing, daycare and foodstamps along with free breakfast and lunch while their child receives a free education

  • BeeKaaay

    People should just call it TyranniCare, because it fits better.

  • Joseph Phillips

    73 pages of regulations? Is that all?

  • Jeffrey Olah

    and if I say go scratch…I’m not paying it

  • rant stocks

    Remember the prison the feds bought a year ago,you very may be getting your mail there if you don’t pay up. The people effected the most will be the poor and homeless…they cant pay.

  • kim

    yep. and aside from certain political classes being exempt, you can be exempt if your religion opposes any form of insurance
    On top of this, HHS has declared that those 47% of Americans who pay no federal taxes? They are exempt from the fines too.

  • kim

    so…. 20,000 a year for the avg 4 person family. I am so glad he made it more affordable

    • EastValleyConservative

      My dear, your financial situation is of no concern to them—funding the SEIU and other groups (shamnesty–read some of the illegal alien regs exempting them) is the agenda. There is a good chance we who pay will be denied the most services while those exempted waivers (a guarantee that you and I will fund their care) will be first in line.

      • $36544368

        I say we all renounce our citizenship, then come back in as illegal aliens 😉

  • kim

    be careful on the medicaid. Seems the application has a new little addition which allows them to confiscate anything you inherit, including insurance policies you are a beneficiary of, and when you die they can confiscate everything you owned to get back what they spent

    • $36544368

      They’re already doing that now here in CA, and have for years.

  • texaswc

    I guess the jails will be filling up with people failing to pay this “penalty” and infringement on our rights…

  • madian_kikyou

    I AM NOT GETTING IT AND I’M NOT GOING TO PAY THE FINE EITHER! SCREW YOU, OBAMACARE!
