President Obama warns youth: Sign up for Obamacare or we will charge you a penalty
The Washington Examiner ^ | 3/14/2014 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 03/15/2014 8:07:18 AM PDT by Beave Meister

President Obama warned young people that if they don't sign up for Obamacare by March 31, they will face a penalty -- if they can afford it.

During an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest, Obama explained that young people might be charged a fine if they don't get insured.

"If you can afford it — you just decide you don't want to get it because your attitude is 'nothing's ever going to happen to me' — then you'll be charged a penalty," Obama explained.

Obama was careful to specify that people who can't afford Obamacare will not suffer a penalty, thanks to a "hardship exemption," but encouraged everyone to sign up.

"[Y]ou never know what kind of curveballs life throws at you,” he warned.

So far, I'm reading that 83% of the signups are subsidized and 20% have not paid their premiums.

But of course the govt ONLY reports that a whole bunch of people have signed up....

“Scaring the children now with Chicago Thug tactics....”

The urban youth of Chicago know better. Young Jorge or D’shaun knows the girlfriend he knocked up will get free healthcare from the government whether he has purchased insurance or not. Same for the baby. Same for him. If he goes to the hospital with a gunshot or stabbing wound he’ll be stitched up at no cost even if he doesn’t pay or have insurance.

Response from the ghetto youth to Obama, “Who you kiddin man?”

We are not talking chicken feed here.

From a recent Forbes article:

For a single person who makes enough in 2014 to file a 1040, the penalty can be as little as $95 or as much as $3,600, depending on income. For families, the penalty is much larger: A couple with two children could owe between $285 and $11,000.

My TaxVox post last November explained what determines the penalty. For low-income households, it’s a fixed dollar amount: $95 per adult plus $47.50 per child, up to a total of $285. Higher-income families will owe 1 percent of their income (net of specified deductions), up to the average national cost of getting basic (bronze level) insurance coverage for all family members. According to the Urban Institute’s Health Policy Center, that coverage will cost about $3,600 per adult plus $1,900 per child in 2014.

The penalty will be higher in subsequent years—2 percent of income with a minimum of $325 in 2015 and 2.5 percent of income but at least $695 in 2016 (again with a cap equal to the average premium for bronze plans in each year).

ANY WONDER WHY BUSINESS CANNOT PLAN FOR TOMORROW AND HIRE ACCORDINGLY? EVERYDAY BRINGS A NEW SUPRRISE FROM THE CLOWN.

MESSAGE TO BONER - IMPEACH HIM WHILE YOU HAVE THE HOUSE BECUASE IF YOU DON'T DO SOMETHING THE HOUSE WILL BE LOST.


yES, YES, YES I know he will NOT be removed by a Senate of his peers. Get it on the record and make the media cover it 24x7 - you will not only heep the House but increase your majority. The media is NEVER going to love the GOP so just take your media bashing and do your CONSTITUTIONALLY mandated job. Remember what happened to GWB when the left blamed him for "Bush lied and thousands died"

So, if you work for cash and don’t file taxes, no penalty.

And how do you charge people who simply collect govt benefits rather than work?

This is going to work out quite well.

I read months ago that the only way the IRS can collect it is if you are owed a federal income tax refund at the end of the year. If you have to pay, they have no mechanism to collect. This faded away pretty quickly...is it true?

On Fri 3/14 I had to drive forty miles to Roseville which is on the
outskirts of Sacramento to pick-up some meds at the Kaiser
pediatric clinic pharmacy. The area which is off North Sunrise Bl
is a rather modern commercial office/retail section of town. To
my surprise in front of an office I passed two ladies sitting at a
table. They had a sign that read “IMPEACH OBAMA” and several
large posters of Obama complete with Hitler mustaches placed
above the upper lip. I needed to get the meds back to the group
home where I work or I would have stopped. I’ve been in the
hospital for a few weeks for intestinal problems. What in hell
have I missed? Is this going on around the country?

He’s lying again. He just waived his magic dictator’s wand and granted EVERYONE an exemption from paying the obamacare fine; from UPI yesterday:

“The Department of Health and Human Services released a seven page bulletin Wednesday announcing the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ decision to extend the transitional policy of the Affordable Care Act by two years, to Oct. 1, 2016.

Effectively, this makes the individual mandate — the requirement that all individuals purchase insurance by the end of March or face a tax penalty — considered by many to be the backbone of the Affordable Care Act, an option one can opt out of rather than a requirement.

The transitional policy allows for hardship exemption from the tax penalty if an individual can’t afford to sign up for coverage. Previously, exemptions were only offered in extreme cases — such as bankruptcy, eviction, or homelessness — and required documentation, while the current language allows users to seek exemption if they “consider other available policies unaffordable” or if they “experienced another hardship in obtaining health insurance,” and only requires “documentation if possible.” “

White House Budget May Reduce Patient Access to Medical Imaging

News | March 12, 2014 | Practice Management
By Diagnostic Imaging Staff

The new White House budget may adversely affect patient access to advanced medical imaging technologies, according to a release issued by the Access to Medical Imaging Coalition (AMIC).

President Obama’s 2015 budget not only tries to close a loophole in the anti-self-referral law by eliminating the In-Office Ancillary Services Exception for diagnostic imaging, radiation oncology, physical therapy and anatomic pathology, but the budget plan also recommends prior authorization for power mobility devices and advanced imaging.

“President Obama’s budget threatens patient access to care and important imaging services through burdensome prior authorization requirements,” Tim Trysla, exectutive director of AMIC, said in a release. The organization would prefer to see adoption of physician-developed appropriate use criteria (AUC), which has been proven effective in driving appropriate imaging use.

The American College of Radiology (ACR) is also opposed to the budget plan.

“Numerous studies have shown prior authorization increases medical costs and administrative red tape while burdening patients and physicians with potential treatment delays,” the College stated.

The Medical Imaging & Technology Alliance (MITA) had already expressed concern over preauthorization in 2013, in response to the 2014 budget, which also called for pre-authorization, stating in a release: “This provision was included in spite of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB)’s acknowledgement that a prior authorization policy will yield no savings.”

A study published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology in June 2011 evaluated the utility of radiology benefit managers (RBMs) and results showed that relying on RBMs to conduct prior authorization for advanced imaging increased costs and red tape, which placed additional burdens on clinicians and potentially delayed treatment.

Don’t you think running away from your enemies during a time when you should be confronting such evil, is quite contrary to that of “keeping your freedom at all costs”?

There is no where to run to from what is to befall us. So, it is better to rely on God, and His son to get you through it. There is nothing else that will.

I wrote what I wrote, because were I to write what else is in my mind, I’d no longer be under the radar.

Eyes are watching.

However your point about God and His Son and relying upon them is golden wisdom.

But I think I am also going to have to rely on myself, just as we are going to have to rely on ourselves.

I believe we are in a true Biblical battle with Evil right now, and it is going to be much worse.

Without expounding any further, I will have to leave it with this-

“This person is going to have to use much more than a pen and a phone to consume my freedom.”

Remember, “fear” comes from Satan. We must TRUST that God can maintain our absence from any radar, if it’s His Will. We must put our trust in HIM to direct our actions concerning what we will do, or where we will go, if it is His Will for us to do that. We must not be fooled by “self-reliance” during such a battle as this. If we rely on ourselves, we will fail. Epically.

This is not about the “pen and phone”. Those are just things to confound us, confuse us, and create division amongst people....leading us further away from God. Even more so, we can NEVER be FREE in a fallen world, a world in which Satan has dominion over right now. It’s a deception.

I respect any reluctance to respond.
Good Luck with your choices. :)

We were ALWAYS in a battle with Evil, but now, at the denouement it is far more obvious.

FWIW I read your reply above as your way of confronting evil rather than running from it.
