I don’t think you understand how Obamacare works. You aren’t going to go to jail if you don’t pay for insurance. You do have to pay a fine, but for someone like Rush, it’s pocket change. I don’t know what you want him to do? set himself on fire as a political statement like a Buddhist monk?
Interesting question. Will he refuse to pay the penalty ascribed by the mandate? And do it as a firewall for all the rest of us. How can they go after us if they don’t go after him?
As far as I understand, and like Ms. Pelosi, I have not “read the bill,”
if you don’t buy insurance, you pay a fine?
He will probably just pay the non-compliance penalty...oh, I mean the thing Roberts called a legitimate tax.
Most people will continue to receive employer provided insurance.
Mr. Limbaugh makes North of $300 million dollars a year. Why in the wide, wide world of sports would he buy medical insurance? He could start a small hospital with the change on his bedroom dresser...
Rush still has to explain why he was arrested on his way into the Dominican Republic with illegal Viagra.
That was definitely paid for out-of-pocket.
The insurance for the wealthy is so good that they have to pay a tax on it.
Even I won’t buy it. I’ll get the coverage I need and if that ain’t good enough take ot outta one of my checks...
The radio talk show host who said Romney will win in a landslide? And who said that McCain would win?
The fine per individual is only about $600 with no penalty if he avoids it successfully so I don’t see what you are getting at.
He can not buy the insurance at NO risk.
What are you talking about, Rush will pay cash. If you listen to him you would know!
On the national level very many people, should it ever come to that will simply NOT file both a.)1040 return or b.)the reporting form indicating insurance coverage, or will file but not the reporting form
A national boycott of an unconstitutional law will be organized, and is being organized, and one for which there is not enough police to prevent.
And, by the way an all cash/barter system basis, so they cannot be put out of business. There is no provision besides the fine, and the penalty for not paying the fine is not a “tax” violation.
This will all be made easier in each of the states which have decided not to take part in any insurance exchange, and therefore those citizens have no provision for participation.
If this went far enough, it could dramatically reduce medical costs for routine preventive care. The legal requirement for providing catastrophic or emergent care would still remain by law, as it is now.
The leadership will come from individuals exercising their rights in a very large test case. Sort of like people speeding on a federal highway— “come and get me”.
Private payers will probably be banned knowing Obama.
AFAIK Rush “self-insures”
Be. Interesting to see what would happen if tens of millions just said NO. We’re not spending thousand of dollars /yr on health insurance.
BTW. Rush....and all those guys probably are already in with these guys...
