Surprise!

If these people aren’t joking, it looks like Obama and his media bridesmaids did a heckuva job getting the word out about Obamacare penalties. Fancy that.

Sure, people heard all about “health care for all” from their favorite celebs, but did they hear about what happens if you choose to go without health insurance? They have now.

Hey, baby, do you not have health insurance? ‘Cause you’ve got “fine” written all over you.

Exit question: How many of them voted for Obama?

  • Nied’s Dead Horse

    They are going to be sooooo disappointed in a couple of years when that penalty spikes upward.

    • http://lordfoggybottom.com Lord Foggybottom

      This is also why we can’t let the GOP delay the individual mandate. The only way this law gets repealed is when the dopes who voted for it suffer the consequences of their actions.

      • thetreyman

        if implemented, it’s here to stay. they may touch up around the edges but it will never be gotten rid of. so no, defund now.

        • BAW

          I know that is “conventional wisdom” but I’m not absolutely convinced it’s true in this case. There are just so many people who are going to dislike this (like the majority who said they were happy with their coverage before this all started) and so few that are actually going to “love it” in spite of what Harry said. Even those who “love it” in theory are likely to be ticked off (like this bunch) by the reality. It’s not only not free, you have to pay if you don’t get it! We may not be able to explain it all to people but when they get hit with a stick, they notice.

          • Chipsie

            It’s so great that the O admin. has already given out 2,500 waivers for their favorite supporters! Not only that, but the fine doubles and triples each year for the masses if they don’t buy in. If the government can force you to buy this, they can force you to buy and do anything. It’s embarrassing to have a President act as an insurance salesman promising free phones to all who sign up before this special offer ends….not only that, but today it’s actually being reported that to call and sign up they devised their 800 number to be ….wait for it…..

            very classy stuff from your Washington libs.

          • Red Fred

            I’m not sure too many people like income tax, but it still exists.

          • Deborah Hallsted

            How many people love the IRS? Anyone do a thing about it?

        • walterc

          Such as exempting themselves and certain chosen groups.

          When has any government program gone away once enacted? I’d bet that if you dig deep enough int he Navy budget you find an annual expenditure for sail making. And I know the Army still has a horse patrol i.e. cavalry provision.

          • BAW

            I know, you know the big example is prohibition and the people supported that. It was a Constitutional Amendment. But it was stupid and it never should have happened. Sure it took some time to undo it but it was Constitutional Amendment! And it was undone.

            And a lot of the other stupid stuff could be undone as well with strong leadership and/or fewer stumbles that give the left ammunition like suggesting things be allowed to “wither on the vine” and a refusal to continue the appeasement of the left. Yeah, okay, it is complicated and it will take a lot but I don’t think Cruz and people like him will give up so I won’t either.

        • http://lordfoggybottom.com Lord Foggybottom

          Agreed that it should be defunded, but that’s not going to happen. Delaying the mandate allows the Dems to win in 2014 because the people won’t know how bad it is. They need to suffer the results of their actions.

          • Robert

            I agree. Biggest mistake of Republicans was delaying Obamacare affecting the lives of the people if was intended to help.

      • BAW

        I hope they succeed because what they are doing is right, the mandate should be delayed. But I am with you, I will appreciate and even enjoy the upside if they don’t succeed.

    • conservativechick

      And the health care spikes downward.

      • Sez Eye

        I see you have noticed that the progressive mantra is “health insurance for everyone” but say next to nothing about who is going to provide their health CARE.

    • c4pfan

      Yeah. No one seems to point that out to them.

    • SideTraKd

      Obama voters, one and all, who will only wake up to any sort of reality when Obama comes for THEIR wallets. They rooted and cheered for Obama to go after other people’s money. It never occurred to them that their money would be on the table, too.

      • ObamaFail

        That’s the problem with libs. They think that nothing will ever effect them.

    • jenny

      They spike up after the first year. 0bamacare shock is coming!

    • orrineldredii

      Remember it is $95 or, 1% of your income the first year, then it goes to $265 or 2% of your income the next year. So grab you legs and kiss you *** goodbye.

            It would be a popcorn moment!

  • Bails

    Umm. try $4000. not $95.

    • Jens Christian

      It is 95 to start for a single person then goes up to 695 but for a family it will be 1% of yearly income then it goes up to 2.5%. Welcome to the Land of the Free which isn’t free anymore.

      • Tigerspike

        Land of the fee?

      • jeffmunisteri

        $95.00 PER PERSON PER HOUSEHOLD….

        • TexasMom2012

          Only the first year, then the fines increase over time until they reach 2,5% of your income.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™✓SAP

            No, it’s whatever is the GREATER…. for 2016, it’s $695 or 2.5% of your income… whichever is greater. And that’s per person.

        • AMERICAN Kafir™✓SAP

          $95 per person or 1% of your income, WHICHEVER IS GREATER.

        Barry O.: Health care is a right; now pay up!

        • Sez Eye

          this isn’t for health care, it is for health insurance.

          • TexSizzle

            But palintologist accurately quoted Barry 0 saying that health *care* is a right, and accurately paraphrased him as saying ‘now pay up’ when he says that it is a law of the land, despite not enforcing border security.

          • Sez Eye

            Absolutely agree. Most people are confusing having health insurance with having access to health care. Two totally different things. Many physicians have already capped their medicare patient load. Why would people think they would suddenly accept obamacare patients?

      • AMERICAN Kafir™✓SAP

        No, not for a family. All those are PER PERSON:

        2014: $95/1% of income, whichever is greater.
        2015: $345/2% of income, whichever is greater.
        2016: $695/2.5% of income, whichever is greater.

        Per person.

      • Judy Alexander

        Yeah, watch all the freddie freeloaders really get more lazy then and for sure not work so they will not have an income

      • redheadgrl

        $95 or 1% of your income, whichever is greater. Only those earning $9500 or less will pay $95.

  • Joengima

    This reminds me of the moment in a horror/sci-fi movie when the Villain’s minions realizing they’ve been lied to.

  • Jen O’Neal Bryan

    Do people even pay attention to what’s going on in the US? It’s like they are forgetting this is one of the major things the Republicans don’t want to happen. It’s the democrats and Obama that want to fine people. What up people!

    • melle1228

      Nope, these idiots are probably the same ones who voted for Obama and hated on Republicans because the media told them to.

      • freeinaz

        And actually think ALL their healthcare will be FREE

        • 3seven77

          Just like their Obamaphones.

      • Deborah Hallsted

        A pharmacist friend told me he’s had several people come in to fill prescriptions and thought they would be free, because Obama promised them! He did! He said -free Healthcare, really!

      I can’t tell you how many people I talked to (and not uneducated morons either… college grads or people w/ advanced degrees) who thought we were getting single payer when B0 care went into effect.

    AND … these obama dopers probably don’t know that the $95 FINE is just the beginning …

    “The penalties are not very high to begin with. In 2014, the fine to remain uninsured is $95 per person (up to a family maximum of $285, or 1 percent of family income, whichever is greater).

    But the penalty will increase more than sevenfold in the next two years, with the fine running as much as $695 per person by 2016. The family maximum would be as high as $2,085 (or 2.5 percent of family income, whichever is greater).”

    Yes, Nied, but by then the whole country will be so in love with Obamacare that Americans will universally accept these fines, and mandates as money well spent! Or at least that’s what Harry Greid says, (constantly repeated by the MFM which claims it’s not biased, partisan, or in the tank for Obama).

    Dear Low Information Voters:

    Welcome to reality–the reality we’ve been trying to tell you about for years now.

    Oh, by the way, while you’re here: If you don’t sign up and you pay the fine, if you get sick and decide that you need health insurance, you will have to wait a year to enroll. You probably thought you could just enroll whenever because that’s what the government and those nice talking heads on TV told you when they crammed this bill down our throats, but guess what? Surprise! That wasn’t true either.

    Please start getting educated and start educating your friends who probably aren’t paying any more attention than you are.

    Thanks,
    America (what’s left of it).

  • ginafreedom

    If they paid attention and didn’t vote for this idiot in the wh… they wouldn’t be dealing with the idiot things he has done…

    • http://blog.khelek.us Brian Johnson

      To be somewhat fair, given that the media in this country is just an extension of the Democrat Party, they didn’t have anyone to tell them what was in it. All they knew was it was going to be Skittle-pooping unicorns and rainbows.

      Dear Leader is to be protected at all costs.

      So yeah, between the media, and what they’re fed through their idiot friends on Facebook (echoing the media), how could they have know.

      Oh, that’s right, all of us Conservatives trying to tell them. And of course, a deaf ear turned to them.

    BWAHAHAHAHA

    The Shadenfreude is awesome

    The media has worked so hard to shield The One and his administration from anything negative that the people who put them there had no clue what would happen.

    Millennials, this is what you voted for. Hope you enjoy it.

    • Ryan Johnson

      I don’t enjoy it.

      • BAW

        (I think) I know what you mean. I don’t want it to happen. I never wanted it to happen. I don’t “enjoy” it (and it fits a lot of things) when it happens to people who brought it on themselves. However, it is a sort of poetic justice or a “teachable moment” and I understand why when they are so utterly shocked it is funny. Sad funny but funny.

        • Ryan Johnson

          I mean that I’m a millennial who voted for Obama because I was stupid (more detail here http://twitchy.com/2013/09/22/kerry-washington-loses-emmy-to-claire-danes-inevitable-cries-of-racism-ensue/#comment-1056403436 ) and I don’t enjoy the consequences.

          But yours works too.

          • BAW

            Awww, I’m sorry. It’s like the lessons my kids insisted on learning the hard way. Sometimes I had no sympathy (when the consequences really weren’t that big a deal) but sometimes I really hated it for them. This is one of those times. I’m sorry but, this was an important lesson, one you needed to learn and one you will never forget.

            It’ll be okay.

          • Ryan Johnson

            Hey, there’s solace in that there’s only three years left!

            Although as you can see, its kinda poetic how I still screwed up even when I put more thought into my vote the second time. Ended up at the wrong conclusion.

          • BAW

            There you go, looking on the bright side. Well done.

            But don’t beat yourself up too much over 2012. Romney did not do a good job of convincing anyone of anything. He is a good man but too “moderate” to play hard ball politics with the left. After I made the mistake of voting for Jimmy Carter I was lucky to have Ronald Reagan come along to teach me all sorts of things. Don’t you find Republicans like Ted Cruz or in your case maybe Rand Paul (since you said you are leaning libertarian) far more persuasive? They’re what Reagan called “happy warriors” not the timid, moderate establishment Republican type. I wanted to vote for Reagan, I voted for Romney because he was the only choice I had.

          • Deborah Hallsted

            Read your posts, and I respect the fact that you were open enough to change your mind. Too many people get stuck in rout thinking, and when they form an opinion-nothing can change it, moreover they can’t even step away from that opinion enough to mull over the POSSibility that it could be wrong. Look at Artur Davis, and Elbert Guillory, Ralph Washington. You’re in good company :) !

          • Ryan Johnson

            Thank you. :) Looking back on what I said about how I felt Obama’s stances on abortion and gay marriage were a small price to pay for what I saw as more important issues (sending the troops home, fixing the economy etc)-now I’ve also learned that morale is every bit as important as these physical issues. Without morale, everything else falls apart. And it’s showing every single day.

          • Deborah Hallsted

            I have to say that as soon as one stops examining their opinions, they begin to fossilize, and that can happen at any age! # 2.NO kidding. We’re coming apart at the seams.

            Damien, I have a lot of respect for you. You were not stupid. Lessons are learned, and I know when I was your age, I made some pretty big mistakes, one was believing the lies of the govt. Took me until my 30’s to really wake up and see what the heck was going on. I’ve been paying attention and learning ever since. Kudos to you for seeing things now, you are much younger than I was when I opened my eyes. You are a thoughtful intelligent young man. Don’t forget that!

    wait until the website ‘glitches’ are fixed and they can get online to find out how huge the premiums are for their ‘free’ healthcare. the penalties are a bargain in comparison.

  • Brad Donald

    $95 or 1%, 47.50 per child which ever is greater for 2014. $325 or 2% in 2015, $162 per child. $695 or 2.5%, $347 per child in 2016. Also possible jail time and now IRS penalties.

    • BeauDCrab

      Also possible jail time

      No criminal penalties, according to the law.

      But, the IRS isn’t known for adherence to law. Or codes of decency.

      • Brad Donald

        they prob don’t class them as criminal or whatever because they use the private IRS court and judges.

      • Brad Donald

        And not to mention they can just take the fine right out of your bank account the way they set it up.

        • TocksNedlog

          That part is incorrect

            Sure it is (for now) I’m sure they’ll find a way to slip it in there.

    • redheadgrl

      Can you imagine? $95 for those making $9500 or less. Most GenY are making in the $30K range or higher.

      • Brad Donald

        Or 1% whichever is more. So instead of 95 those making 30k pay 300.

    Hahahahha. Had to pass it to find out what was in it. And, it’s $95 OR 10% of your income, whichever is HIGHER. Year 2 it goes up to $675 and 2.5%. Suck it LIVs!

    • geronl

      if you make more than $9500, the fine is more than $95, yep

      • TocksNedlog

        1%, not 10

        • Abby Normull

          Um, $95 IS 1% of $9500…

          • Libsuckbigtime

            He is trying to say that $95 is the least you will pay in fines. If you make more than that… you pay more than $95. Example: You make 20k, you will pay $200, but there is a cap, I think.

      • redheadgrl

        Sorry, I meant 1% the first year.

    oh that is… $95 PER MONTH…EACH MONTH….PER PERSON….that you don’t have insurance… but in reality it is much more than that depending on your income. TAKEN FROM YOUR 2015 TAX RETURN !!!!

    • TocksNedlog

      It isn’t $95 per month. We’re talking about fines for individuals, not the fines for employers that fail to offer adequate coverage.

      • QueenB ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Ah, but that mandate had been delayed. Funny isn’t it? I thought democrats were the part of the little people.

        • TocksNedlog

          Democrats want to pander to the little people in order to control them. The LAST thing they want to do is actually BE one of ‘them’. Heaven forfend!

  • JBDestiny

    No, no – that $95 fine is just the introductory special! You’ll be paying more later!

  • rambler

    All this info is old news. Only those who chose to believe the babble out of the dems’ mouths will be surprised. They were all to lazy to do any research to learn what the bill actually said. Listening to people who didn’t read the bill saying what was in the bill was a pretty dumb thing to do.

    And their votes count just as much as ours, remember that.

  • TJ

    Not too worry If you are to poor enough you can get the penalty waived and be on the expanded medicare plan for life. If you ever get a job and/or raise to be over the arbitrary number of poverty rate you will be fined for your success and have to pay or get insurance.

    • geronl

      you mean have the honor to pay for someone else’s insurance?

      • Donald Wade

        Where is there honor in failing to provide for yourself?

  • Axelgreaser

    SNORT! Talk about the chickens coming home to roost on top of the stupid heads of Obamabots! And to think I was still laughing over dumb Dem Propagandist Donna Brazile’s epic dumbness (she even exposed her dumbness in the press): “I don’t understand why my insurance rates are going up.” LOL!

    HAHAHAHA…wait until they find out that their deductibles are sky high, and premiums for those “pre-existing conditions” are in the thousands in some areas!

    I can’t wait until we have the first undocumented (illegal) alien going into a hospital emergency room. No insurance. No problem. Can’t be turned away. Can’t sign them up. Can’t withhold Income Tax refund…don’t have SSN, or at least a valid one. Whaddya gonna do now, huh? The ACA was supposed to stop people from using hospital emergency rooms for healthcare, I thought.
    This is going to blow up, BIG TIME!

    • Paul

      Another fun element that is about to blow up is the identity theft and fraud that is going to be rampant in this system.

  • Michelle ✓classified

    This is the moment a lot of us have been waiting for…they get to see, ya know, what’s in it. These are the folks who blindly supported Obamacare without truly comprehending what it really means. All they heard was, “Free Healthcare!” and paid no attention to the details. Guess what kiddos, it ain’t free. And yes, you are fined if you don’t carry insurance from here forward. $95 is a bargain! In MA, the fine for not carrying insurance is $300 (or at least it was when I lived there).

    Welcome to reality KoolAid drinkers! Deal with it, YOU voted for this!

  • TocksNedlog

    The answer to the exit question is “every single one of them that was old enough, and bothered to vote, voted for Obama.” Every•one•of•them.

  • ObamaFail

    This is what happens when you only hear what MSNBC, CNN, Jon Stewart, Steven Colbert, and Media Matters say about Obamacare. This is what happens when you don’t bother to get educated about issues. We’ve all be blasting Obama for a long time about this stuff, and now these people are JUST NOW finding out that there is a fine? Low-info voters at their finest. Wait until they see that the “free” healthcare they’re signing up for it going to be expensive.

  • The Jackal

    The low informed zombies are finally waking up. Took you long enough.

    • ObamaFail

      It won’t last long. Obama will say something that sounds catchy, or jingle his keys on tv or something and they’ll all be distracted from the facts again and stop being angry about it.

  • Barry A. Brewer

  • Paul

    Oh my, I really truly hate to laugh at the less fortunate. And I’m not sure if laughter is really what I’m feeling. Maybe it is sadness, or even anger. These morons are the same ones who voted in massive numbers to elect and then re-elect this clown. And now they show that in addition to their stupidity and ignorance, they’re not even self-aware enough to avoid revealing their stupidity and ignorance? The republic is truly doomed.

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    This gave me my biggest laugh all day.

    “Exit question: How many of them voted for Obama?”

    All of them. The question is, how many times did they vote for Obama?

  • docflash9

    I have this feeling that when people buy one of these plans the company is going to require auto pay from a checking account or charge to a credit card.The banks will make a killing on fees for nonsufficient funds and late charges.Some people will never be ahead but they will have healthcare after the deductible is met.

    • Wendy Barnes

      Absolutely! Pay when you sign up. In January, call a doc for an appointment in March! Then meet your $5000 deductible!

  • ObamaFail

    Don’t fret libs, you may get fined for not signing up, or face skyrocketing premiums if you do, but just rest easy knowing that “it’s the law of the land.” That’s what these mindless drones have been saying the whole time, now they’re just now realizing that some of what we said is true, and soon, they’ll realize that EVERYTHING we said about Obamacare is true. But, they shouldn’t be upset. They wanted this, by voting for Obama.

  • jeffmunisteri

    Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha… Just Like McDonalds… I’m LOVIN’ THIS…. Fell Free to BITCH… But the REST of us KNEW this was Coming…. ROFLMBO…..

  • geronl

    It’s $95 (minimum) the first year and goes up every year

    • ObamaFail

      I’m confident it’ll be gone before the next Presidential election. If libs are upset about the news that they’ll pay a fine if they don’t sign up, they’ll be really upset when they find out they will actually have to PAY for Obamacare.

      • geronl

        Of course it will be failed by then. The big campaign theme in 2016 will be about replacing the failed capitalist model of healthcare with nationalized healthcare. I think they designed ObamaCare to fail on purpose.

  • ObamaFail

    I’m sorry, but I’m really, really enjoying this. Just imaging how panicked they all must be getting over the fact that Obamacare is not only NOT free, but it is being FORCED ON THEM. That one made me really laugh. “That doesn’t sound like a free country’s law.” Well, you voted for the wannabe dictator on an ego trip, so eat it up.

  • abe-froman

    My response to these incredulous, naïve, gullible young persons is : no SH#T ….consequences of voting with your lady parts ….morons. So what you gonna do about it now??? Maybe instead of protesting against some dumbass liberal cause like abortion gay marriage and free contraception; you instead get on the phone to your senator/congressman and squeal for the LAW to BE REPEALED DEFUNDED KILLED. But no you lazy, latte sipping, candy ass, socialist media junkies will just go on supporting Democrats across college campuses, and voting elect idiot democrats in state elections….enjoy paying …and working less hours

  • digitalPimple

    Enjoy!! – B. Obama

  • Tree Feathers

    Not just a fine of at least $95.00 or 1% of your income, so that amount varies, but also suspend Driver’s Licenses, place liens against your property (home), withhold tax refunds, and I’m sure I’ve missed some others, but with our fine Internal Revenue Service, that trusty-worthy and HONEST organization, I’m sure, we have nothing to fear at all – just fear itself! Oh yes and loss of freedom, which is what is being exchanged for Government control of individual healthcare. Welcome to the FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION!

  • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

    Why do they think the house republicans are trying to de-fund it? Hint: the Individual Mandate – means you have to buy health insurance. The house republicans have been trying to get it delayed at least by a year this is why the government is partially shut down. Seriously there can’t be this many ignorant people hooked up to the internet with the ability to read this provision since the bill was passed in 2009. And they just now found out this was going to happen. Incredible.

    • Wendy Barnes

      They were watching Miley Cyrus begging for some kind of attention now that her TV show is over!

    • ObamaFail

      Not to mention that they are all so slow and dense that they are just now finding out about the things that has caused Obamacare to be consistently unpopular. The polls have always shown that the majority is against it, so these left-wing idiots need to wake up and see that the Republicans have been fighting to save the American people, LIBS INCLUDED, from facing the problems and monetary troubles that Obamacare is going to cause the American people.

      • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

    • ObamaFail

      I agree. If everyone who has been against Obamacare since day one stands up and refuses to sign up, you’re right, they can’t arrest all of us. They can fine us, but the people who do sign up will be paying out the ass for healthcare because of the majority who don’t sign up (remember, the Dems are counting on the young paying massive premiums to offset the cost for older people), Obamacare will be in such disarray that they’d have to kill it just to save face.

Maybe next time they will pull their heads out of their rectums and actually look at the candidates voting records, their past history, and other factors that matter, instead of him being just a cool looking black guy

    • ObamaFail

      Maybe from now on, they won’t let an outward appearance of a candidate determine their vote. They all voted for Obama because he was black. They’ll deny it, but none of them can list any of his policies that have actually benefitted Americans. Just like when Hillary runs, they should vote based on record (and if they educated themselves on Benghazi, they wouldn’t vote for her either), not on the fact that she would be the first female President if she won.

  • Rob Shoup

    Maybe they can sell one of their Obama phones to pay the fine.

      The answer is the Democrats, but they’d fail because they’d say Republicans.

    All these people whining about having to pay fines if they opt out of Obamacare remind me of a woman who was audio-recorded during Obama’s first campaign. My memory is a little fuzzy but she was adamant that HE would send her a check and that she didn’t know or care where the money was coming from.

    I can’t wait to see their reactions when they learn how much their “affordable” policies are going to cost, and how much their deductibles, co-pays, etc. are going to be.

  • Richard Nichols

    Easy fix. Claim the correct amount of dependents on your W-2, then when you file claim the same amount. The only way they can collect the fine is to take money out of your tax return. If you have no return, they can not take it out.

    Of course, you don’t find this out until you try to register, it tells you what your deductible and premiums are, then it has your info so you can’t just ignore it.

  • CommieJuice

    Not all voted for Obama, so maybe 8 down and 60 million more uninformed voters to go. I call this poetic justice. Too bad their faces and real reactions can’t be caught on video. We have been knowing about this since the debate started for this socialist care, but some people are finally catching up, only 4 years behind. My guess is that it doesn’t matter to them either way, so when Obamacare turns into single payer (the ultimate goal of Obamacare) they won’t know what that is either, they will only know the effects of it later when procedures start to get rationed and denied, and Americans slack up on going to medical school that will lead to care shortages. HOW WONDERFUL that’s going to be. Barack Obama’s Ameritopia! Mmm, mmm, mmm.

  • Nikolai Davis

But then their obamaphone rings and Honey Boo Boo comes back on and their brief moment of understanding what is happening to them passes.

    They conflated “Obamacare” with “Obamaphone” and left it at that. They can’t believe that king zero would do something to them that would actually cost them.

  • Dee M.

    Most of these people (you’ll notice I didn’t say “all”), will continue to do what they’ve done for years, and what has contributed to rising costs of OUR healthcare. Rather than go to a doctor who would require payment on the spot, they will show up at the ER at midnight with their kid who has the sniffles and taxpayers will be on the hook for the ER visit, etc. Not much will change except the non-freeloaders will get hammered by higher premiums and more taxes. There still will be millions who choose not to become insured.

    Why do I have to pay for someone else to get insured? I have to pay to live in a civilized society? You sir are an idiot. That is not what this country was founded on. Pay to be an American? Really? STFU

    • EEKman

      Yes, thats the way it works. The ACA was passed by congress. The supreme court ruled it constitutional as congress has the power to lay and collect taxes. We agreed as a society that we want the ACA. SO YES YOU DO HAVE TO PAY. Either live off the grid on a mountain and use the barter system or be the party of individual responsibility and pay your damn bills. Your tax bill IS A BILL YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR.

      • PumpedUpKix

        “The ACA was passed by Democrats.” There, FIFY.

        • EEKman

          You do realize that the ACA is a republican system dont you? It was modeled after Romneycare by the Heritage foundation which is a REPUBLICAN think tank.

          • PumpedUpKix

            Oh, you mean RINO Mitt Romney, in a Democrat run state, at the behest of the people of his state, implemented a plan that they wanted.

            There are plenty of RINO’s out there. We know who they are, and will fix that problem soon.

            We are looking for a Conservative plan.

          • EEKman

            Yeah? Still looking for one huh? You’d think that instead of stomping your feet and whining about the law we do have that millions of us seem to want, you as a party can come up with something better and convince us. You’ve had years to come up with something better.

          • Brad Harvey

            Something better was already around. It was known as the free market.

          • J.R. Finger

            Dang Brad, you stole my thunder! I was going to say that! Unfortunately the government meddled in healthcare so much that it wasn’t really a free market. The government screws everything up and then blames someone else. If the government were someone in your family it would be your fat, unemployed, alcoholic uncle who farts at your wedding then points at your nephew and blames him.

          • Princess

            There were several ideas that Republicans put forward on healthcare and Dingy Harry refused to bring ANY of them up for discussion. Just like the 50+ jobs bills that the house has passed and Harry has tabled. No discussion. Ya, that is really working across the isle.

          • Deborah Hallsted

            And they have presented many alternatives. But Democrat “terrorists” to borrow the incendiary terminology of the liberal fascists, keep vetoing them.

          • Falcon D. Stormvoice

            Actually there are a ton of free market reforms that would plummet the cost of healthcare. Were any of these looked at? Nope, it was straight to complete government control. Just like always. Pass the bill without knowing what’s in it, then change it afterwards.

          • Marc Vellat

            Republicans have never been allowed, much less invited to contribute. Their suggestions for improvements have been made, but have seldom been mentioned in the press and have fallen on deaf ears on Capitol Hill – Harry Reid won’t even allow them to be discussed in the Senate. Are you telling me that you’ve never heard of the proposals to increase health insurance competition by allowing purchase across state lines, or reduce the overhead of the medical industry across the board via tort reform? Things which would actually reduce the cost of medical care rather than inflate it (whatever happened to the promised $2500 per household reduction that BHO PROMISED?). I suppose if you get all of your “news” from MSNBC and the Comedy Channel that’s understandable, but it doesn’t make it forgiveable…it just groups you with the low-Info Obamabots who elected this embarrassment. Such a shame that our first “black” president had to be one who’d make our nation a laughingstock. Spend a little time seeing what the foreign press write about the USA…they don’t feel a need to cover up for “their candidate” like the US press does.

          • jinxy76

            MANY suggestions have been offered, both when they were writing that stupid monstrosity of a law, and every time they try to fight it. Ted Cruz’s filibuster had lots of suggestions mixed in with the LONG list of why it was a bad law. Maybe you should watch CSPAN once in a while to get FACTS and leave the MSM alone. We, the smart people, knew it would never work, would cost WAY more than we could ever afford, and would break the back of this country. You, the lemmings, are just getting a fleeting glimmer of the truth. I ALMOST feel sorry for you guys.

          • Robert

            Is that the millions who did not realize they would be fined for just existing as an American without insurance?

          • waitandsee

            You can have it just don’t ask me to pay your share. if it cost me 200 a month it should cost every man woman and child 200 a month not a penny more or a penny less then it would be fair, but for this to be in the best interest of all everyone should be included no exemptions for any one . rich or poor in gov or out. so lets make it work. everyone pays the same amount. regardless of income .

          • mike_in_kosovo

            Sort of hard to suggest alternatives when Harry Reid won’t let the bills touch the Senate calendar, skippy.

          • RogueRose

            You do know that it’s completely within the authority of a STATE to implement whatever system they want? That’s completely different than finding any authority for the Federal govt to set up a mandatory health care system. Apparently unless they don’t call it a tax but the Supreme Court rewrites the legislation to insert the word tax where it doesn’t exist.

          • Marc Vellat

            Regarding the Supreme Court decision, part of the Court’s decision was to “send” the Act back to Congress to vote on it as a tax, which it never did. So its invalid.
            On the issue of forcing individuals to become active in interstate commerce, an issue not brought up by the action they were considering, the justices pointed out what future actions need to look for in order to seek a finding of it as unconstitutional..the Court itself revealed what opponents need to seek in order to have it overturned.

            When Obamacare came to the Supreme Court it had a mandatory penalty for those that did not sign up. It was not a tax! Even though the SCOTUS does not have the authority to write tax law, the Supreme Court rewrote Obamacare twice and turned it into a tax in order for it to pass the constitutionality test.

            All taxes have to originate in the house as the Supreme Court has absolutely no authority to write legislation or tax bills. For proper procedure to happen in this case it should have been declared unconstitutional, resubmitted by the house as a new tax bill and then voted on again.

            So much for the claims that the A.C.A. is “the law of the land”. And even if proper procedure had been followed to make it such, the President would have no authority to unilaterally pick and choose which parts to implement as written and which his cronies are exempted from.

          • BTeboe

            You need to go back to school and take some government/civics classes. Me thinks you get your info from the lame stream media which is ignorant and biased as the day is long. States have all kinds of power that doesn’t belong to the feds. Every state in the Union could set up any kind of health care they wanted. Feds do not have that authority. The Supreme Court ruled it as a tax, but here’s a little nugget for you – the ACA bill was written by the Senate. All taxation bills must originate in the House. There are several lawsuits still making their way through the courts about this. It is not as set in stone as you would like, I know. But at least get educated before shooting from the lip.

            BFD…..what’s that got to do with the price of tea in china. Romney is a private citizen…he didn’t put forth or vote or sign obamacare into law…that’s all you and your boy. Own it !

          • DrSamHerman

            You realize that Stuart Butler, the Heritage Foundation scholar who discussed health care reform in 1989 has specifically disavowed that his version of an individual mandate was NOT the same as the Democrat congress passed at the last minute with sweetheart deals and not one Republican vote?

            The same bill that labor unions are now fighting against, as in James Hoffa of the Teamsters saying the O-care act will be “harmful” for “millions” (his word) of families?

            The same bill that has caused business to cut hours from 40 to 30 for many employees because the businesses cannot afford it?

            The same bill that is causing hospitals and health systems all over the US laying off healthcare professionals (including physicians) because they will not be paid enough to provide care?

            That bill?

          • Simon Shim

            Actually this was modeled after medicaid system. .. which you will be surprised to find out it will cost each person more in long run than without this mandatory law. .. did you know that lower income States, they will be paying higher premium than higher income States? Where’s the affordability in that? I give exactly one year before even most of liberals will start turn away from this law…

          • Marc Vellat

            The A.C.A. was never intended to work – that’s why legislators were discouraged from reading it before voting for it. It’s just a stepping-stone to the single-payer plan that the “progressives” have been trying to put in place for decades. It was one of the “Current Communist Goals” enumerated in the book “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen, and read into the Congressional Record back in 1963….”#32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare
            programs, mental health clinics, etc.”.

          • Princess

            You are so partisan, you cannot have a decent dialog with you. Romney at least worked with a very liberal state congress. Romneycare isn’t what “he” wanted. It was what the PEOPLE in that state wanted. They got it and it is bankrupting them. If a state wants to experiment by consent of the people, I am fine with that. When the federal government wants to mandate to the entire country, that is tyranny. States are suppose to be the petri dish of ideas. Why destroy the whole country?

          • Patrick

            No one in Mass. is/was forced to enroll in Romneycare or incur a penalty. There are several other distinctions but I am really tired of having to explain things to liberals…

          • ObamaFail

            But after all of the Dem attacks on Romneycare, they passed Obamacare, filled with far more regulations.

          • mike_in_kosovo

            “It was modeled after Romneycare.”

            No it wasn’t. By the time Deval Patrick implemented it, it was *nothing* like what Romney had wanted.

      • Brad Lobdell

        No, the obamacare was passed on a straight party line vote that even then needed bribes and carve outs to get enough votes to pass and then was erroneously upheld in a vile decision that converted it into a tax when at the time it was voted on all in favor swore to God that it was not a tax or they would not vote for it and all of this was done against the will of the people. Now, stupid laws have been passed before and repealed before. This is one that needs to meet that same fate. I also stand on my point that this country was not founded on the principle that we have to support others. That is the opposite of what this country was founded on. Move to France fool.

          You must already live on a mountain or hate people because we as a society agreed to take care of each other. Presumably you live in an echo chamber of other selfish sociopaths who don’t care about anyone outside of your families or friends and who all get together and gloat about how cool it is to be selfish. You don’t see the human cost of your selfishness because its out of your immediate sight.

          Its frankly irrelevant what reasons you think the country was founded on. Live in the present reality, not the imagined idealized version of some distant past that you aren’t living in.

          • BTeboe

            You’re idea of taking care of people and my idea (and others as well) are completely different. I don’t think I signed up for any plan to support you from cradle to grave. If you want to live like that then you need to move to Europe. Be prepared to pay more than 60% in taxes though. You are most likely already on welfare, receive subsidies for housing, have a free Obamaphone, get free medical care (ACA is not free) and are upset that people are trying to take away your goodies. You better learn to wipe your own ass in the US.

          • Ann Cain

            Europe doesn’t hand out food, shelter and money to those who don’t work. Homelessness is almost unheard of because they;re required to work or they don’t eat. I don’t believe EEKman is unemployed. He’s probably a hard working citizen who pays his taxes as we do. He just has a different point of view and assumes we’re selfish jerks because we’re fighting Obamacare. He doesn’t realize this isn’t about healthcare but about power, control, and access to private information and our bank accounts. I hope we’re helping to give him food for thought which will inspire him to research this topic and come to his own conclusions, as most of us have.

          • AMSilver

            Explain to me how it is selfish to want to keep the payment you receive in exchange for your labor, but not selfish to want to take money from other people (who don’t want to give it to you) without doing anything to earn it yourself.

            I don’t have the means to support anyone else, genius. I can barely support myself, and you know what? I ain’t asking for the government’s help. You’re talking like a Communist advocate. If you want Communism, go to China or Cuba. This law puts me in a tight spot, because I can’t afford insurance, state-run or otherwise, and I don’t have $95 to take. You saying I’m a selfish sociopath because I don’t want any part in this train wreck? My first and only responsibility is to myself and my kin. Those others you talk about have their own.

          • Ann Cain

            We’re a very generous people EEKman and give to many in need in our communities and would give people the shirts off our backs if necessary. However, we believe in adhering to the Constitution and small government. This legislation was shoved down our throats with Pelosi’s disgraceful remark that we’d have to pass the bill so we could find out what’s in it. The many Unions who were very important is getting their members to call their elected officials and demand this law be passed, were all given exemptions and have now changed their minds after learning about what’s in it. Congress shall make no law that imposes laws on citizens that they’re exempt from…one of our rights…was grossly and arrogantly violated and I imagine even you, EEKman, see the hypocritical nature of the WH and Congress keeping their cadillac health care plans while We The People are stuck with Obamacare. I read last night about a guy with an existing condition and his premiums for the sliver plan is $597 per month but carries an annual $13, 890.00 out of pocket annual deductible. Most plans have a $5,000 deductible per person. Surely, EEKman, you don’t believe that’s an improvement, do you? This man with the pre-existing condition was also told if he didn’t purchase Obamacare his penalty would be $4, 017 and his tax refund would be held and lien put on his house if not paid. So, if we seem like heartless, greedy fellow citizens, please do your homework and learn the truth about this legislation’s impact upon We the People, which includes you. We’re fighting for all American’s freedoms! Have a great day and know we’re patriots, not selfish people.

            If I want to be charitable towards someone else (and I am), I don’t need a law to force me to be kind and charitable. And it is very relevant what our country was founded on. The only selfish people I see are the greedy ones who come and TAKE the hard working citizen’s money and give it to someone else under the guise of fairness. Maybe you have big pockets but most of us can’t afford $1500 or more premiums per year and a $28,000 deductible for a silver plan that pays 70/30. Yes, that is what a friend found out he would be required to pay under the ACA. Let me do a little math…at those rates a $40,000 medical bill will end up costing him $49,000 on the ACA plan. And, the young sheeples are shocked to find out they will have to pay a $95 fine (goes up next year) if they choose to opt out – and they are freaking out over a $95 fine? They don’t know the half! I hope Obamacare will implode on itself! And, the democrats may whine that the House is not capitulating this time – but old Harry should not be so surprised; after all his party rammed the un-ACA through with no republicans on board. Well guess what, the republicans don’t want it today either and I hope they continue to hold out. The longer this goes on, the truth will come out…old Harry refuses to help children with cancer and here I thought they were the party that cared so much for the people young and old?

          • redheadgrl

            $95 or 1% of income, whichever is higher. I’m sure many of these folks that are surprised about the tax make more than $9500 per year. Over $9500, the fine goes to 1% of income. $10 an hour full time is 20K per year, so that person’s fine would be $200 (what I made as an admin 20 years ago). These LIVs are going to be in for a real shock come tax time since most starter jobs for kids out of college are in the 30K range now.

        The entire law was NOT ruled constitutional, only the individual mandate as SCOTUS illegally rewrote the legislation to call it a tax. There are still challenges pending on other grounds. For one, since it’s now a tax, and the tax provision was put in by the Senate, and only the House can initiate a spending bill, it’s probably not going to withstand that challenge… unless they have something really juicy on Roberts.

        You’re a delusional nitwit without any grasp of the facts. “The ACA was passed by congress”…Yes, illegally and unconstitutionally but what are laws to libs?

No Republicans voted for the bill in the House and they did not have the votes to kill the bill as unlawful legislation. But lets address that little quip about society “agreeing” on the ACA and it’s the law of the land. Let’s apply your standards to the DOMA that your high priest doesn’t recognize.

      • Princess

        ACA was passed along partisan only lines and was passed without knowing what was in it. Boy, that sure sounds smart and you are a sheep if you are ok with that. Oh ya, just go along and pass it, I don’t care what is in it. Well, I have read A LOT of it and you are going to care. The Supreme Court ruled it constitutional as a TAX. ALL taxes must originate in the House. This bill originated in the Senate. Therefore, it is unconstitutional unless they go back and fix how it was passed. All of that is making its way through the courts. Obama, who thinks he is king, has violated that very law (ACA) by giving waivers to no less than 2500 special interest groups INCLUDING congress. This isn’t over and it won’t be until it is gone. It will fall under its own weight. Just wait until the fines start coming. Why do you think they hired 16k plus IRS agents to enforce it?

      • John Gramm

        The ACA was only passed by Congress after many bribes, showing Congress to be blatantly corrupt. Otherwise it would NOT have passed. And just because the S.C. says that a law is constitutional, that does not necessarily make it so. The Supremes’ own biases were used. The Constitution was not followed. Not only that, but the majority (I don’t remember the exact number, but it was about 60%) of the people do NOT want Obamacare. And don’t forget the very stupid remark that “we have to pass it to see what is in it”. And I don’t care what ANYONE says, this country was NOT founded on socialism. Some things are absolutely necessary, but this is not. There are BETTER alternatives, and ALL of them were brought forth by Republicans. Also, if it is so great, why are Obama and his family exempt from it? Congress and their families are also exempt. So are the Supremes and their families. So are most unions! Gee, who does that leave to pay for all of it? I remember when we were told that the more people who were in it, the cheaper it would be. And then that idiot gives all of those exemptions. Just google to see how many groups are now exempt from it. It is ridiculous.

        The ACA is not a tax, it is a law that has a tax penalty within it. There is a difference. According to the 10th Amendment to the Constitution any power not directly given to the federal government remains with the states. The Constitution does not give the federal government the power over healthcare, Therefore, (despite what the corrupt supreme court has ruled) it is NOT legal for the federal government to force individuals to sign up with obamacare or tax them if they do not comply.

      • redheadgrl

        However, you have forgotten to mention that Mr. Obama has suspended certain parts of the legislation via executive order, which is not how our legislative system works.

      • mike_in_kosovo

    • Disco Mike

      I guess you don’t like paying for freeways either then?

      • Brad Harvey

        The government isn’t forcing me to use the freeways, Disco Douche.

      • ObamaFail

        There’s a difference. People need roads so they have a convenient route to get to a destination. Taxes pay that. But paying for lazy scum who refuse to work and just decide to leech off of the taxpayers is a completely different story. Entitlements are supposed to be a safety net, for when people are trying their best, and just can’t make ends meat or for reasons out of their control can’t find work. I have yet to meet a welfare recipient who isn’t just some fat, lazy drug addict who wants the taxpayers who work for their income to pay their bills.

        • Disco Mike

          Entitlements are problematic, I agree, but I fail to see how requiring the country to obtain health insurance is similar to welfare. We need the population to be healthy so that we aren’t threatened by disease. In peoples’ health, often populations stand and fall together. I don’t like paying for freeloaders either, but I also don’t like seeing them not be cared for and then later cost me even more indirectly.

          • Robert

            People who earn 133% of poverty level and lower do not have to pay for their insurance. It is welfare. It is getting to the point that being unemployed will pay more than the median salary.

          • redheadgrl

            That would make sense if these policies paid for wellness care, but they don’t. Health insurance only treats sickness and disease after the fact. Prevention is what will keep the population healthy. Want to fix that? Look at the subsidies for big corn/big wheat and processed food. These are the main reasons for poor health in the lower classes.

        • Disco Mike

          And when people default on their mortgages because their medical bills can’t be paid for, all of society ends up coming out of pocket to clean up that type of mess.

          • Robert

            So you are saying that you have the money to pay your mortgage, but pay medical bills instead? Many medical professionals are willing to work with you. Pay what you can. If you told them that you were losing your house, they would understand and try to work with you. Where and how does this happen?

          • redheadgrl

            Most hospitals and clinics will work with patients on a payment plan. I hate to hear that ‘some’ people lose their homes, but payment plans are an option. Also, Americans like to get the “best” treatment, which is also the most expensive (ala Walter White). I also read a really interesting article once (I’ll see if I can find it) about Doctors and their end-of-life plans because they see so many families starting very expensive and painful treatment that only gives a few more months of time vs. accepting the reality that end of life is near (re: elderly patients).

            And under Obamacare, many people will default on their mortgage because they will be paying so much for healthcare under the ACA that they can’t afford their mortgage. And really, who can afford to buy a house but not health insurance before Obamacare?

      • Robert

        Businesses and chambers of commerce would pay for roads, if there were no government. It is in their interest to have a path to their business.

    • Gary Honeycutt

      The government should have stayed out of the charity business altogether.
      Americans were charitable individuals until the government started looking into it and decided that they could just take our money and decide where it would buy them the most votes!
      it should be a scandal rather than business as usual when a group pools their money for a cause..and instead of spending their million on the cause, donates it to congressmen so they will spend a billion of our dollars on it.
      There are a lot of ridiculous things government spends our money on that we would never have approved, but senator leadbottom doesn’t get re-elected and get a hospital dedicated in his name if he just allows charitable individuals to send their own money to causes they wish to support.

      • redheadgrl

        Yes, I am very careful where I give my charitable contributions. I always look at their financials to see how much money actually gets to the end-cause. Too many “cool” organizations give less than 25% to the actual charitable need.

  • Betelgeuse

    Just dropped by to say a few things in defense of my generation.

    First off, the majority voting age is now (thanks to the Baby Boomers) the 45+ range. That means that either the majority of people that age voted for Obama or something somewhere is terribly askew. On that note, the PEOPLE don’t vote for president. In fact, we can all vote for Fred Flintstone if we so desired. The ELECTORAL COLLEGE has the final say in who really gets elected. Tough turkey, folks. If you don’t like it, you can get out of my America.
    Secondly, myself and others in my generation (the 30 and below) really do think this is a great idea. We are about helping others, especially within our borders. This is why so many young people are against the current wars; why we speak out against violence inside the U.S. Life for this generation will not get harder because we have to pay for healthcare. In fact, by paying for healthcare, it can only get better.
    My tertiary point is that no one EVER said anything about “free healthcare” and if they did they were terribly misinformed, much like many of you. What we have been talking about since the inception of the ACA is UNIVERSAL healthcare. Universal =/= Free. There is a major difference between the two words. We have always (if we’ve been paying attention) known that we would be paying for it, especially after the government came out and TOLD us that it was a tax!
    Fourth, to appeal to any good God-fearing Christians out there, Jesus taught that we should take care of the weak, the sick, and the hungry, even if it hurt us a little bit. What better example could there be than this? Paying a little more on your taxes to help offset the costs to those who maybe couldn’t have been able to afford it before.
    As a final note: In the future, try to refrain from using “Dirty Liberal Media” like CNN to tout your Neo-Conservative bullcrap. Thank you and goodnight.

          Then you really haven’t spent any time reviewing its effects on businesses…those people who provide jobs and such.
          Nor have you looked at what it doing to those that barely can afford insurance now.

          The ACA is not in the best interest of the average citizen. That’s very clear. Especially in light of what people are discovering as they attempt to apply for it online and are surprised to find out their new insurance rates and “benefits.”

          The ACA is not about health CARE. It is about health INSURANCE. And those two things are not the same.

          An individual could get health care even without insurance. Yes, they may have a big bill at the end of it, but often, especially for people with little or no income, it was written off by medical institutions.

          But now, by requiring insurance, people at certain breakpoints in income will find a huge jump in their fiscal requirements for insurance vs care. And heaven help them if they make a mistake on the “benefit” estimate or get a raise during the year.

          But I don’t expect you do to more than recite talking points or incorrect facts regarding this failure.

          • Betelgeuse

            The recitation of incorrect facts seems to be something you are quite adept at. Where are your figures? Where did you come by this knowledge? If you’re getting those stories of ridiculous rates from Facebook, then I am sorry that you have been so badly deceived.

      That’s why you are still a diaper-dandy. .. I have no problem with the idea of health care for all. .. but it needs solid planning. .. this so called Obamacare will hurt the lower income family in long run (as short as 2 years) and will put so much more strains to middle class… most of these so called “affordable” plans will utilize expanded Medicaid… do a little research on medicaid and you will understand why it’s dangerous for whole country to be enrolled in medicaid. ..oh… also you realize that drug companies and medical equipments suppliers are mandated to pay over 45 billions in tax next few years? Guess who’s gonna actually paying for that bill. ..

      • Betelgeuse

        I agree that the way it is laid out is not perfect and that it needs to be reformed. This bill, however, is designed to help people pay for these exorbitant price increases brought on by drug and medical equipment companies. If they keep raising their prices, they will get heavier fines until they are forced to put out a reasonable price for their goods. We’ll be paying for it, but we will in no way be paying as much as you geezers fear. (payback for the diaper dandy comment)

      First, I’m not sure what your point is about the electoral college. The electors vote in accordance with the people of their state, so it’s a distinction without a difference (which is why the winner of the popular vote is almost always the winner of the electoral college).

      Secondly, you’re interested in helping others, huh? How much do you give to charity? Do you volunteer at a soup kitchen? Or are you a typical liberal who will give people the shirt off someone else’s back?

      Thirdly, you’re a schmuck.

      Thank you and goodnight.

    • redheadgrl

      As a Christian, I have studied the bible and Jesus was not political. The only political statement he made was “Give unto Caesar what is Caesar’s”, meaning pay your taxes. Jesus’s teachings on charity were directed at the individual and the church, not through mandated fines and taxes by the government. Not once did Jesus state the government should be providing charity. He also said, “The poor will always be among us”, meaning we should always be vigilant in our charitable actions.

      I do not play the game of which political party Jesus would approve of because we have no way to know. However, he never advocated for the government to provide charity, he advocated this on the individual level.

      • Betelgeuse

        I have also studied the bible. I realize that Jesus was not attached to any certain political schema. However, I cannot for one moment believe that he meant for us to stand by while sick people suffer and die because they can’t get the help they need simply because they have a family history of diabetes or cancer or heart disease. Not for one instant will I believe that Jesus was so disinterested in the sick or the poor. Secondly, this IS a tax. Plain and simple. This is a tax which will fund a health care system. It shouldn’t matter who is being charitable, so long as charity is offered.

    • redheadgrl

      Have to reply here, it won’t let me on your response to me.

      Then sadly, you missed that point that Jesus always spoke to individuals regarding charity, caring for the sick, poor, widows and orphans, not government. It also saddens me that so many in my country believe a government program can take the place of charity.

      And yes, Jesus did not mean for us to “stand by while sick people suffer and die”, Jesus wants each one of us to do what we can, as an act of sharing His love, to those who need it. A gov’t program does not have the ability to fulfill Jesus’s teachings.

      And you will pay the fine or have medical insurance regardless if you go to a doctor. You have to pay either way just for being an American citizen. That is the problem here. Never before have we been forced to buy something just for existing.

      You don’t have to buy car insurance unless you are planning on buying a care.

    • Michelle ✓classified

      I think you’re a little confused. It’s not Twitchy complaining about the fine, however Twitchy is displaying people who are complaining about the fine. Do you not understand the difference? As for your comparison to paying a fine for driving without a license – apples and oranges. If someone doesn’t have a driver’s license and they choose to drive anyway, that is their choice to risk the fine. The fine for not having insurance is a fine imposed on a person for simply existing without insurance.

      The true “burden” on healthcare costs are the millions of illegal aliens who use the ER as a primary care doctor. They are well aware of our law that a person seeking ER care can’t be turned away. They use our emergency room systems for basic healthcare without one concern of ever paying the bill. They have no legit social security number, therefore no legit credit history, so for them to walk away from a hospital bill means nothing to them – they have no consequences to pay. An American without insurance is less likely to use the ER for simple matters because they do have a credit record and think twice about destroying by defaulting on a hospital bill.

      I invite you to visit any ER in the Los Angeles area at any given time. The waiting rooms are over-filled with folks who don’t speak a lick of English, aren’t in any life-threatening situation…they want to see the Doctor because they have a runny nose.

        1930s periodicals have no shortage of editorial material in the exact some tone. Some here almost look like modernized parody; I’ll try and compile a list at somepoint.

        and anyway, I’m not saying its the same, but services like healthcare will tend toward being a universal mandate over the next century whether people like the consequences or not, and then after 50 years or so no one will blink an eye.

          Or this little experiment in socialism will inoculate/vaccinate current generations from experimenting with failed political philosophy such as socialized medicine for generations to come.

          After all the current generation has been incubated in the halls of leftist indoctrination. Once they are outside of these institutions of higher learning for any length of time the spell wears off. They find that real life doesn’t operate like their lefty professor’s told them it would.

          • Disco Mike

            Mandating universal medicine is not socializing medicine. Would you refer to car insurance as socialist because it is universally required?

          • DeadWhiteMan

            I would, actually. But there is an important legal difference between the two: car insurance is mandated by the states. And if I have to explain why that’s significant, you need to study civics.

          • TexSizzle

            Car insurance is not universally required. No one who does not have a motor vehicle has to buy auto insurance.

        • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

          That’s BS of course it’s socializing medicine. Insurance dictates what medical procedures/medicine it will cover -once there is only one insurance provider -the goal of obamacare is to destroy the private insurance industry. Then the government (single payer) aka the state makes all those choices for the individual – it’s socialized.

          No one has to buy car insurance if a person doesn’t own a car or drive a car why would they have to buy car insurance?

          However no living person can live outside of their own bodies they are born with them, and now the federal government is penalizing, no taxing, no mandating, no penalizing, no taxing, no mandating, that A person born in a free country the U.S.A. has to purchase a product from a private industry.

          You are aware that this is a free country – this bill “Forces” free people to buy a product. This bill forces people to buy something because they are breathing, and residing in the United States of America. The government is now taxing people just for being born in this country. Just how do you square forcing people to buy something with Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness?

          Where is the liberty?

            The individual mandate is going to hurt the working poor the most. No one on the left, middle or right, like the Individual Mandate google Howard Dean’s opinion of the Individual Mandate.

            They need to get rid of it. If this program is so wonderful strike the individual mandate, and let ACA compete in the market with all the other plans. Make health insurance more competitive, whenever a product has to compete with other products, it’s improved upon, and it drives cost lower because more people buy into it, mostly because it’s been made affordable. The person selling wants to sell as much of their product as they can. High volume = Large profit.

            I like that the insurance companies can’t deny coverage for pre existing conditions but we don’t have to change the entire health insurance industry to address that one issue.

You have the two parties fighting against each other, not to mention the tea jockeys. what ever happened to UNITED STATES… Why is everyone so pissed off at BOBO he is not the one that passed the law or created it… I did not vote for him dont get me wrong… but maybe just maybe if congress would Unite for once in this century who knows what would happen maybe our economy would get better and we would live up to our name of “UNITED” States of America!!!!!! Justsaying…

    • Gary Honeycutt

      There should be more whites getting government assistance as they are by far the largest single group. While less blacks as a total number receive government assistance, they are waaay over-represented compared to their share of the population.
      Also, “government assistance” is vague. I would bet the average white person on some form of aid is not getting as much as the average black person on aid, such as getting food stamps becaue of a low income or job loss vs. being wholly supported by the taxpayers and never working.

    • redheadgrl

      Here you go – premiums by state for silver and bronze plans, but no mention of coverage. Can’t compare premium costs to current plan without coverage levels because you cannot determine your out-of-pocket to see if Ocare is more expensive or not.

      http://finance.yahoo.com/news/50-states-obamacare-113318311.html

      I live in GA, and yes, via the exchange my premiums will increase about $150 per month. However, work open enrollment has not yet begun, so I do not yet know what my costs through my employer’s coverage will be next year (I’m sure there will be a hefty increase in premiums there, too).

    • ObamaFail

      Bobo’s Democrat buddies created Obamacare. So he is to blame because he helped promote it and got it past on a partisan basis. And many people have seen what their premiums will be under Obamacare. And they are SKYROCKETING. Do you libs ever get your facts straight before commenting? You’re talking about people saving money, but for the people who have gotten to log on, they’re seeing that the “Affordable Care Act” is ANYTHING but affordable.

  • kssturgis62

    Has anyone found out if this is TRUE??? I know it is on an Alex Jones Website but he has the Screen Shot of the Facebook Post. http://www.infowars.com/obamacare-fines-to-be-seized-from-bank-accounts/

    Will Sheehan claims that when he tried to sign up for Obamacare and then register to opt out, he received an ominous warning. Sheehan’s full Facebook post reads;

    “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 drivers 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.”

    Sheehan went on to point out that the site makes you input all your personal information before giving you an indication of the costs, meaning a database of the “uninsured” is being built. He added that he could not afford to pay the premium so would have to break the law and pay the fine, leaving him with no health care coverage.

    • Michelle ✓classified

      That person may or may not have received that email, but there’s no truth to it. The Federal Government won’t be suspending driver licenses, putting liens on property, etc. and no black helicopters are going to follow you around. From everything I’ve read, all they will do is deduct the fee from any Federal tax refund. If you don’t have a refund coming, they keep the fine on your record until such a time you are entitled to a refund and it will be deducted. The Federal government doesn’t even have the authority to suspend a state issued driver license over a tax issue. Alex Jones is spreading a whole bunch of bullcr*p, but what else is new?

      • Casca

        ?

        • Michelle ✓classified

          Not sure what your question is. Can you be a little more specific?

          • DeadWhiteMan

            I had no intention of getting insurance or paying the fine, anyway. The government can go to Hell — and the sooner, the better.

      • sodakhic

        Obviously you haven’t dealt with the IRS.

        • Michelle ✓classified

          It’s actually written in the law that way. Have a look:

          Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act: In the case of any failure by a taxpayer to timely pay any penalty imposed by this section, such taxpayer shall not be subject to any criminal prosecution or penalty with respect to such failure.

          Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act: The Secretary [of Health and Human Services] shall not file notice of lien with respect to any property of a taxpayer by reason of any failure to pay the penalty imposed by this section … or levy on any such property with respect to such failure.

          Now, if you want to assume they will do otherwise, that’s a whole other conversation. But the FACT is, it’s written into the law all they have the authority to do is deduct the fine from refunds.

          • redheadgrl

            Michelle, it says the Sec of HHS shall not file notice of lien, but what about the IRS? Totally different agencies….

          • Michelle ✓classified

            My understanding is that it’s a fee. A fee imposed by the HHS, not a tax owed to the IRS. The IRS involvement is simply a collector of the fee, the money goes to the HHS. The IRS doesn’t have the authority to file liens for the collection of a fine imposed by another agency. The IRS is the middle-man, a bill collector and they have no authority to take any action other than collect the money at tax time.

          • redheadgrl

            But SCOTUS said it’s a tax?

            This whole thing is a clusterf*ck.

          • Michelle ✓classified

            Some say tax, some see fee. I’m going by what the law says. And you’re right – this is a total clusterf*ck on every level. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what they actually do about the fee.

      • kssturgis62

        I just wanted to know. Like I said it is on his website and it was for the screen shot. At least he says at the bottom of the article he could be lying about what he was told.

    • moonsbreath

      First of all, I wouldn’t trust anything on Alex Jones’ website. He’s nothing but a fluffy nutter. The “fine” is supposed to be $95 or 1% of your income, whichever is higher, not 10%.

      The only thing I would do, is make sure you have high deductions on your W2. It would be better to set that money aside and pay your tax bill instead of receiving a refund in case you opt out of insurance.

      • kssturgis62

        the fine goes up and it is on your Mandated Income. So all people in your house that work, that income is added up, because you fill out the form and then the fine is assessed. Secondly the IRS is printing up a Mandated Tax Form. so that form will be filled out when you do your taxes. Mandated Income is much different than your income on your W2.

    • cvmoonshadow

      We were told by a friend that has cancer that this happened too. He is having to sell everyting to afford the help he needs. It is a nightmare and we need to #makedclisten

      • kssturgis62

        I know others like my best Friend Tammy who has a pre existing Condition that has to do with her thyroid. She is a home health aide, and she does not get insurance through her employer because she is contracted. She doesn’t qualify for any help in Michigan because she makes to much. So she thought she could get help with her pre existing condition through Obamacare. SHE WAS TOLD THEY ARE OUT OF MONEY !! for people with Pre Existing conditions. so I checked, and it was announced in April on the PCIP website that there is NO MONEY.

  • $26626485

    Actually not assumption….it’s a fact that in many states…
    Latino illegals are the majority of the uninsured…..in CT it’s like around 65 per cent. The truth isn’t mean or racist…it’s just the truth.

    It gets worse, kidlets…it goes up to 2.5% of your AGP in a couple years.
    And $95 is 2.5% of $3800.

    Of course, you might qualify for some “financial help” for your insurance choice…the one with the $5k deductible and 40% co-pay….

  • Bryn Watkins

    There is a reason they delayed implementation until after Obama was re-elected.

    • Michelle ✓classified

      And a reason why he’s personally delaying the employer mandate. There’s an election to be hijacked in 2014.

  • derfelcadarn

    Medium sized businesses will reduce their employees hours to avoid mandatory health coverage. .. so those poor folks who get to work less, no insurance from work…. and they have to shell out money to get this “inadequate” plan. .. which limits choice of meds, doctors, medical equipment, and so on… and this is what we have become? Just throw word “affordable” and people assume it’s the greatest law ever? Obama just can’t do wrong, right? Wake up America. .. we are in situation where we need to help middle class to flourish. .not other way around. … otherwise we will become North Mexico or South Canada in few years. ..

      And that’s just the 1st year.

      “Anyone who doesn’t qualify for Medicaid and is not covered by group health insurance by Jan. 1 will be required to get insurance or pay a penalty.

    January 1, 2014, failure to be insured can trigger a penalty fee of $95 per adult and $47.50 per child. 

    If you have individual coverage but your dependent children aren’t insured, you can still face penalties on them.

    No one knows how many Americans will be without health insurance in 2014. A 2012 estimate by the Congressional Budget Office estimated that about 30 million Americans will not have insurance in 2016, and roughly 6 million of them will face penalties. 

    The penalties for individuals are expected to increase each year, and the uninsured will have to pay either a fee or percent of household income (whichever is greater).

    In 2014, the fee is $95 per adult or 1 percent of household income.

    In 2015, the fee is $325 per adult or 2 percent of household income.

    In 2016, the fee is $695 per adult or 2.5 percent of household income.

    What planet have these people been living on? Turn off honey boo boo, and cat video’s and wake the eff up. We are living in nazi Germany!!!

    • Aaron

      Nothing wrong with cat video. It’s the complete ignorance of the young people being taught by progressives and only learning the Obama song and sex education. They are tweeting all day instead of studying and following current events. It does not help matters that all the news they accidentally hear is what a savior Obama is. *puke*

    Stupid f*ing morons. Hey, come out of your mom’s basement into the light. Remember when you pushed the button for Obama? How’s that hope & change working out for you?

    Welcome to a fundamentally changed America. Idiots.

    • Betelgeuse

      You know what, man? I’m sorry I wasn’t raised in the right generation. I’m sorry the generation that taught me to think did it improperly. I’m sorry I was raised to be a “stupid f*ing moron.” I’m sorry that your generation left no choice but for me to be stuck in my Mom’s basement because your generation made it impossible for me to get a job where I can support myself. I’m sorry your generation made mine such a failure.

      But you know what?

      I’m not sorry for trying to change things. I’m not sorry for trying to give people something to hope for. My generation is progressive. My generation is compassionate. My generation can see both sides of the table and come to a compromise. Your generation put into law many of the practices that doomed us financially in 2008. Your generation cares only about what it can benefit them. Your generation has us stalemated so badly, the nation as a whole could take years to recover. This isn’t our fault. You have only yourselves to blame.

    this is hilarious! surprise assholes. next time think before you vote.

      but their advisors Kanye & Kim never mentioned this.

      Better yet… I suggest the next time they have a chance to vote they should stay home… They don’t seem to be very bright.

    Obama and his minions have made the Affordable Care Act seem like a Utopian dream. Now people are discovering that it’s really a dystopian nightmare.

      JWow is yum, but I know plenty about ACA, too. Good thing I have the VA, but people elected charm over substance, and now they are going to suffer the consequences. The worst part, they are still defending it, as though this is because of the GOP, lol.

  • http://orlandowebdevelopment.com dbcVisuals

    Maybe the dip$h!ts will listen to Republicans more often now! I swear most of the Obama supporters were like sheep during the last election. Stop watching MSNBC and get the real deal with FOX. Plus, the women are a lot hotter.

    Um… All of them.

    You chumps should have done your research before you ran to the polls, now you can reap what you’ve sown.

  • Laura Spencer

    I can’t believe these people are so surprised about the penalties. They must have been drunk from the Kool-aid they’ve been drinking for the last 5 years.

    wait until they find out that if they don’t pay the penalty, the gov. will go into their bank accounts and just take it. LOL

    Try $4,200 and if you do not pay, they seize your bank accounts, revoke your driver’s license, and place a federal lien on your home (if you own one).

  • Jeff Farrar

    Stupid fucks. Nothing is free. Should pay more attention to the real world around you.

  • Stella

    Just wait until folks read up on the marriage penalties!
    Yup – our president and his Obamacare-writing crew who are amoral anyway
    have tucked plenty of other penalties in to this nightmare which will further penalize people who either get married or *gasp* STAY married!

    Remember when Hussein was all for gay marriage? Better wake up. He doesn’t care even one little bit. There was more in this for him than you thought – not only will gays be more easily identified now (remember that muslims despise gays – if you were in another country, the “punishment” would be death), but they will be fined for getting married! Isn’t Hussein swell?

    Yeah, he isn’t. NEVER think he cares one little bit about the problems you have, or the problems his actions cause. His only agenda is pushing islam and his next vacation.

    • Betelgeuse

      This is possibly the most racist and derogatory thing I have read in quite some time. First off, yes. I realize that President Obama’s middle name is Hussein. That doesn’t make him a Muslim. Secondly, only in the most extremist Islamic states would you find a death penalty for homosexuality. There is no penalty for staying married. Yes, the fees are higher for married couples, but if a homosexual couple gets married, they will suffer the same penalties. Calling the President of the United States “Hussein” in an effort to muster anti-Islamic sentiment is low, even for a pathetic waste of air like you.

  • Ronnie Tan

    Individuals who choose not to buy coverage may have to pay a tax penalty. The penalty will increase over a period of years. The penalty for not purchasing insurance is the greater of:
    2014-$95/uninsured person(up to a maximum of no more than 300% of the cost/person)or 1% of household income over the filing threshold.
    2015-$325/uninsured person(same)or 2% of….

  • reasonrulestheroost

    The comments in this forum are simply reactionary froth and foam without much substance. It’s embarrassing. You ought to read more and try discussing instead of dissing. You’ll probably prove my point by going straight to name calling and threats in your replies. Not even clever ones either. Scum. Libterd. For women, you always go straight to strumpet or whore. It’s like you’re all fat unhappy drunk uncles, just mad and spewing.

  • oeb25

    Wait until these low-information “voters” find out that a $95 buck fine is only the first year, it could run up to thousands in penalties. Have fun, obutthead worshippers, Your hours cut to 3/4 time and now paying so that Sandra Fluke and other similar cultists get all the free abortions and b/c they want. You’ll be living under a bridge, but hey, who cares about you? You voted for O’stupid more than once, most likely.

  • Michael Morris

    Whoops, I sent that first guy a tweet asking him how he managed to not know about the penalty, and he deleted his tweet.

  • Hootyman

    Wait till these geniuses find out its $95 or 1% of your income -whichever is GREATER. So if you work minimum wage 50 weeks a year it will be $150 – and these fines escalate after first year.

    • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

      Yep, the “or 1% of your income, whichever is GREATER” will really bite the ObamaDontCare nitwits in the azz. I’d luv to see a Hollyweird star like Jim Carrey get hit with a $200,000 fine from a clerical error in signing up.

    • Betelgeuse

      If you have even the smallest modicum of thrift, you will have to trouble at all saving up for a $150 fee. In fact, it shouldn’t be a problem for ANYONE to be able to save up for any of the one-time fees.

    Funny how when Republicans want to cut welfare, they are called racists. That welfare doesn’t grow on trees. In fact, the EBT card is a petroleum based product, but the funding for it comes out of my pay check. So if it is racists for Republicans to cut welfare so I can keep more of my paycheck that I have earned, that is a very logical statement to make. Can’t have it both ways.

    Your message is not lost. I agree with you that the person you initially replied to was the one pulling race into the argument – even calling the law racist. It isn’t. It was designed to destroy America as a whole, not just a particular color of American. I’m at a complete loss as to how otherwise intelligent people (they seem to be mostly against Obamacare, so they have to have some intelligence, right?) have turned this the way they have.

    Come on, people. Let’s act like adults.

  • Acethepug

    Good. Every one of these Low Information dolts needs to get it good and hard. It’s how they learn. Maybe next time, they will take some time to vet the candidate instead of blindly voting for unicorns and rainbows …

      I despise Obamacare as much as anyone and want to see it GONE! But, your facts are wrong. On your residence, the 2.5 % kicks in for the amount of GAIN, over $500K for a married couple. Still an obscene tax, but we on the right need to have the facts straight. Only lefties are allowed to make stuff up.

  • George Murrey

    I’ve said all along you get what you vote for, and to think this bill was so good. This shows that the first word of the healthcare bill should be a red flag that something is wrong-AFFORDABLE. Hey, the pres has to get money some way or another since this country is broke.

    participate. Wait ’til they learn that the $95. will escalate every few years, until it
    dramatically exceeds the cost of the insurance they don’t have.

It nearly triples!! And YES it will come out of your tax returns or will be part of what you pay in!!

    Now you see why people are receiving fines of 1,000’s of dollars.

    Guess everybody who hated Reading Comprehension and said they’d never need it was dead wrong.

    • OnyxHeart

      That’s not entirely the case. By 2016, the cost will be $695 or 2% of your income, whichever is greater. It’s still unconscionable, but hey — the supreme court ruled it constitutional. Good to know they hate poor people, right?

  • Kefster

    Perhaps, in the long view, this Obamacare is the best thing that could have happened…for two reasons. One, it is bound to collapse under its own weight, and two, it is a blatant invasion of privacy and liberty. This is a hard way for the Millenniums to learn a civics lesson, but since they didn’t learn it in high school, we have to take what we get.

  • Tom Heilman

    So! Tell me again how all that “Hope and Change” is working out for you!

  • Matthew Sailor-Mann

    Where have these idiots been hiding? Have they ever read a newspaper or watched any news? Do they go on the Internet? How and why is all this news to them NOW?

  • BSsOpinions

    You can go to jail … they can just take money from your accounts … and $95 is nothing … some will loose $4000.00 in fines.

  • Melissa Baker Loney

    Tried to warn them..but moochers get excited and ignore facts when they are promised something for free

  • Gerald Loeb

    These are the future leaders of tomorrow. Thank God I’ll already be quite dead.

  • jerard conforti

  • susan5042

    Fined yes, but it’s not $95, it’s $95 or 1% of your income, which ever is higher. And that’s just the 1st year. The following year it doubles, then 2016 it is $695. And they are just learning this now? Now you know what the House is trying to do, help you!!!

  • The Peoples America

    If you think the $95.00 fine is something try the $325.00 in 2015

    • OnyxHeart

      More than $600 by 2016.

    Oh you people are only getting the part of it. Wait till you find out that they can suspend your Driver’s License (failure to comply) and then FINE you AGAIN when you go to get it re-instated or are stopped by an “informed” cop who was tipped off that you’re driving on a suspended license (the fav trick of cops to get the lower class miscreants and harass them when they need revenue or intimidation). Wait till they send in the IRS to AUTO withdraw your IRS penalties from your checking count and your auto-mortgage payment BOUNCES for insufficient funds and you get FINED AGAIN by the Bank AND your Mortgage Company with a few hundred dollars in returned check fees. Then if you don’t get it ALL resolved in 24 months – WAIT till they put a tax lien on your house and have to spend hundreds more in interest fees and attorney’s fees to get that removed! YOU LIBTARDS – WE TRIED TO WARN YOU that OBAMA is a FASCIST.

    • OnyxHeart

      Hahaha. This isn’t even the best part. Are you ready for this?

      You have to make $11,500 to qualify for a federal subsidy so that you can actually afford insurance. Anything below that either comes straight out of your pocket (just as earning 138% above poverty would) unless your state opted to expand Medicaid. If they DIDN’T, you’re stuck with the fine unless you decide between health insurance and a mortgage payment.

      This fine goes up to more than $600 by 2016.

    We tried to tell you but you didn’t listen. SUCKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS

  • G50G

    Remember when Pelosi said, “Don’t read, just pass it then read it later!” Wonder if that’s how the Constitution was passed! You had better be smarter when elections come around again!

  • Robert King

    There isn’t going to be fines for not having Obama care. They will withhold any fines from your tax return.

  • snowshooze

    So, what are they going to blow the $95.00 on?
    Does it go in the general fund?

  • Melissa Linn Askew

    Duh!!!!! Haven’t you been paying attention? I know, stupid question..

  • Elizabeth Honce

    Aloof them. And the penalties increase every year.

  • Elizabeth Honce

    A lot of them . And the penalties go up every year. These people thought government health care meant FREE!

    “It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day,can guess what it will be to-morrow.” – James Madison, Federalist # 62
