How many uninsured people signed up for Obamacare and actually paid their premiums? The administration isn’t concerned at all and will let us know any day now. Any day.

Out: Get covered. In: You guys are gonna pay, right? RIGHT?

How long until we get to mock the #PayUp push by lefty celebs?

    • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Most of the time, they want your credit information to try to avoid underwriting “moral hazard” risks. So they KNOW you have a credit card, and they bill your credit card every month, or else they arrange for payment from your checking account. They’re not in business to chase you down to make you pay– you agree to the automatic charge every month, or pay a year’s worth in advance, or if they let you pay by mail every month, miss that second month, and you’re out on your ass.

      They expect the low information crowd to continue thinking it’s free, as they write the check every month. Despite that, a large percentage of them who actually pay for it probably still delude themselves into thinking it’s free. Remember, with this crowd it isn’t the reality that matters, but how they FEEL about it.

            In reading the article further, it says people were given lists of doctors, but many are saying they don’t even accept UrkelCare…which is what we heard a few months ago about California…that they lied about who accepted the plans.

            The geniuses then made those who did accept it so narrow, they are overloaded and not accepting new patients.

            Such a brilliant plan you have there Democrats.

        From the article above:

        “Insurance coverage is a necessary but not a sufficient condition to assure that people get access to care when they need it,” Grumbach said.

        But….leftists were all running on about how if people just got insurance, everything would be utopia.

  • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

    People don’t pay, they lose their coverage. Less people paying premiums means less people covering those who are getting subsidized and getting Medicaid. Premiums go up for everyone who actually pays. The Affordable Care Act becomes even less affordable. People get pissed, and then come August the Democrats will be calling it RepublicanCare so everyone of their moronic supporters will blame it all on Republicans.

    And the liberal sheeple will fall for it.

            Their article on Fox News against medicaid ignores the problems listed in the article I posted on California and how screwed up that is. Fox News reporting didn’t cause that.

            Fox News reporting didn’t cause the Spite House to issue a reminded to pay premiums because their DemocratCare is falling apart.

            Fox News reporting started well after the Bundy situation got going. If Fox News were really reporting on that issue, Hairy Roid would be a little more worried and not running his piehole so much.

Thankfully the Communists have finally put one of their own in the White House so at least some of the uninformed can see how bad it can get.

        • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          Not TOO O/T, I hope, but it shows how they “massage” figures over there at Media Mutters– they had a story about how FOX continually refuses to report that households with guns in them have a higher incidence of women being shot by their “partners”; at no point in the MM article did they break it down as to whether those were illegally-owned and/or unregistered guns, whether those doing the shootings were also other kinds of criminals, and other sorts of stats that would shed light on that phenomenon. Seems like FOX might not be the only ones refusing to report on certain things.

      Makes no difference what the Dems SAY, people in the real world are LIVING it. All the MSM propaganda in the world will do little to help that reality.

    Hmmm, here’s an idea, let’s recognize the fact that we have a need to start up the dual health insurance program on America. First plan must be ACA compliant – and won’t do a durn thing for us even though we’ve paid into it and still are and those funds didn’t get locked up into a lock box by the govt. It also makes ACA compliant with SCOTUS’s definition – it’s another f’ing tax on us that doesn’t do a thing for us – we’re the cash box for those that won’t.

    Second plan is what will actually cover our health and medical needs – no gov involvement none zilch zero nada, and we get to keep our Medicaid taxes, Medicare Taxes, Social Security Taxes, Our premium payments to Govt Crony Insurance Companies, Associations, Doctors and Hospitals!

    Sounds like Freedom Thinking and Self Governance Doesn’t It?? Woohoo, it kind of worked up until 2010, didn’t it, until Judge Roberts came on the scene?????!

  • Diggur

    Anyone care to make a bet that there are not only a lot of people who haven’t paid, but there are probably a WHOLE lot of people who signed up, paid one or two premiums, and then let the insurance lapse as soon as they got their taxes filed. This ACA scam has more holes than Swiss cheese.

    • Michelle ✓classified

      The fine for not being insured doesn’t start until folks file their 2014 taxes. And even then, anyone who thinks they’ll avoid the penalty just because they’re covered at tax time, is a fool – it doesn’t work that way. At the end of 2014, insurance companies will send a form to their customers verifying each month they were covered in 2014 – like the forms employers send verifying our wages and taxes paid. A person has to include this form with their tax filing. I believe that for 2014 considering the whole mess with Obamacare sign-ups, a person can avoid the fine as long as their form shows they carried coverage for at least 9 consecutive months in 2014.

      • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

        If you’re self-employed, you’ve already paid your 1st Qtr 2014 estimated taxes. And the penalty is for “a continuous period of less than 3 months” without coverage (however the heII THAT’S defined :-).

        • Michelle ✓classified

          The same rule still applies – no one has to show proof of coverage until 2015 for tax year 2014. Even those self-employed who are paying estimated taxes do not have to provide proof of 2014 coverage until filing taxes in 2015. This is not my first rodeo, I’ve been through the routine already by way of Romneycare. I understand how it works. :-)

          • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

            Yes, they don’t have to show proof until their final 2014 return, but they have to estimate the penalty (and pay it) on line 12 “Other taxes” for every quarter starting April 15, 2014. That was the whole Drudge brew haha.

            They only have 10% error to play with or they get another penalty. The IRS says on the form, “You may want to consider this [Health care coverage – When you file your 2014 tax return in 2015…] when figuring your ‘Other taxes’ on Line 12 of the 2014 Estimated Tax Worksheet.”
            http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040es.pdf

          • Michelle ✓classified

            I think you and I are having two different conversations. My comment, to which you responded, was about the original comment – folks not paying their premiums after tax day. You are talking about something else entirely, something that is completely unrelated to the original comment and my original reply to it.

          • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

            Kind of. I was replying to your first line that, “The fine for not being insured doesn’t start until folks file their 2014 taxes.” That’s true, but for the self-employed they don’t have a single Tax Day — they file and pay quarterly, and began paying any 2014 Tax Year penalty last week on April 15, 2014 with their 1st qtr 2014 Estimated Tax Return. Drudge and Rush made the issue very public with Drudge’s tweet.

            I’m just going by the IRS 1040-ES Form instructions:
            “Health care coverage. When you file your 2014 tax return in 2015, you will need to either (1) indicate on your return that you and your family had health care coverage throughout 2014, (2) claim an exemption from the health care coverage requirement for some or all of 2014, or (3) make a payment if you do not have coverage or an exemption(s) for all 12 months of 2014. For examples on how this payment works, go to http://www.IRS.gov/aca and click under the “Individuals & Families” section. You may want to consider this when figuring your “Other taxes” on Line 12 of the 2014 Estimated Tax Worksheet. For general information on these requirements, go to http://www.IRS.gov/aca.”

            Also, “Payment Due Dates — You can pay all of your estimated tax by April 15, 2014, or in four equal amounts by the dates shown below.
            1st payment . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . April 15, 2014
            2nd payment . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . June 16, 2014
            3rd payment . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Sept. 15, 2014
            4th payment . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Jan. 15, 2015*
            * You do not have to make the payment due January 15,
            2015, if you file your 2014 tax return by February 2, 2015,
            and pay the entire balance due with your return.”

          • Michelle ✓classified

            lol no, not kinda having two different conversations, we are having two different conversations. You replied to my first line when you took it out of context. If you put my first line back into the context of the conversation which was originated by Diggur’s comment suggesting folks signed for Obamacare and then dropped if after tax day thinking they avoided a fine. His comment and my reply have nothing to do with folks paying estimated quarterly taxes. :-) You even proved my point with this: “When you file your 2014 tax return in 2015, you will need to either (1) indicate on your return that you and your family had health care coverage throughout 2014, (2) claim an exemption from the health care coverage requirement for some or all of 2014”

            Diggur was suggesting folks seem to think they had to have proof of coverage when filing 2013 taxes a few weeks ago. And I called them fools, proof of coverage isn’t required until filing 2014 taxes in 2015.

          • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

            Right. My point was just that self-employed people “filing 2014 taxes in 2015” did so 7 days ago on April 15, 2014 when they paid their Obamacare penalty.
