Skip to comments.Beware: ObamaCare’s now reality

President Obamas re-election and Democratic gains in the US Senate end any possibility of repealing the Obama health law. It will roll out as written, imposing major changes soon on you and your family. If you are uninsured because you cant afford it, help may be on the way. But if you are one of the 250 million Americans with coverage, there are big problems ahead.
If you get your health insurance through a job, you might lose it as of Jan. 1, 2014. Thats when the new employer mandate kicks in, requiring employers with 50 or more full-time workers to provide the government-designed health plan or pay a fine. The government plan is so expensive, it adds $1.79 per hour to the cost of a full-time employee. Thats incidental if you're hiring neurosurgeons but a hefty increase for hiring busboys and sales clerks.
Currently, employers in retail and fast-food industries pay less than half that to cover their workers.To avoid thecostly mandate,some employers will push workers into part-time status. Other employers will opt for the fine. Either way, workers lose their on-the-job coverage.
Worse, they risklosingtheir jobs.Even the fine adds 98 cents an hour to the cost of labor, enough to make some employers cut back on their workforce.
As many as a third of employers are considering canceling coverage, according to McKinsey & Co. management consultants. But that doesnt mean youll be uninsured; you wont have that choice.
When you file your taxes, you will have to show proof that you are enrolled in the one-size-fits-all plan approved by the federal government. Its mandatory, starting Jan. 1, 2014, or the IRS will withhold your refund....

Funny, you are telling everyone this now, Betsy.
As if, it would have been different under Romney. We lost the fight against Obamacare in the primary.
We get it Betsey. We’re all wards of the state now...
Haven’t had a refund in 20 years.
Regardless of whether or not Obama and his ilk stole this election, there was WAY too much FRAUD happening and that alone is a reason for, if need be extreme and forceful change according to COTUS.
Obama and his cohorts want to move "Forward," they're going to find out what moving forward really means!
I’ve heard her on TV and on the radio discussing Obamacare a couple of times. I think she’s the only one that bothered to read the damn thing all the way through.
She has been AT THE FOREFRONT of this against Obamacare since the start
I watched her discuss for over an hour all the intimate details of Obamacare, and she said she could easily go on for another 2 weeks straight.
She had not only READ the entire thing, but had a hand-written annotated copy nearly half again as thick because of all the yellow sticky notes in it
The media ignored her
She's selling a new book: "Decoding the Obama Health Law: What You Need To Know" ($5.99, Kindle edition).
I'd suggest you do your darnedest not to get sick. (And that advice comes ABSOLUTELY FREE!)
0bama committed government THEFT of 1/6th of our private sector economy and will UNIONIZE IT. MORE SOLDIERS FOR HIS ARMY.
DO NOT COMPLY!
Let the Federalies figure out how to enforce this baloney.
Most didn't care.
Yeah, well, she had to read the bill first to find out what’s in it, right? Even the Supreme Court justices admitted they didn’t read the whole statute!
Ms. McCaughey is the former lieutenant governor of New York and was all over the Clintons when they tried to pass Obamacare in 1993 “in 100 days”! Our form of government depends on an educated populace—which America no longer has, and that’s why the fascists can do what they will with us!
Benefits from communists King Obamaâs America. Free to free loaders.
What if you don't have a refund for them to withhold?
I just found out that my Tricare Prime is going away as soon as April. This was held until after the election and released essentially on veterans day. I am going to be kicked to tricare standard, my costs will go up significantly on doctor visits and prescriptions. This has gotten no press that I know of in the nation media. I would advise all military retirees to look into this ASAP. There may be a chance that congress could stop this but I have no faith in boner. Welcome to the first phase of kicking military retirees onto the national health service.
She was talking about it before they passed it. No one was listening on the dem side. She is one of the rare ones who actually read the bill.
She's a former lieutenant-governor of New York and an insurance expert. She's the one who caught the Death Panels -- she found the provisions in the Obamacare bill and read them out over the air on Fred Thompson's radio show.
Sarah Palin later named the panels, the enabling legislation for which was later found pre-packed in the TARP bill passed months and months earlier. (How 'bout that for shifty action?)
I swear Obama's small group can't be responsible for all this -- there is a Politburo somewhere writing this stuff!

I posted this on the Rush thread when he was discussing this article:
Wow! $1.79 per hour per employee is damn expensive. $1.79 x 40 hours x 47.5 weeks = $3,401 per year per employee.
Now lets do a quick extrapolatoin in the cost of a car....
On average 3 levels in the supply chain
10-12,000 parts per car
On average there is 12-15 direct labor heads per shift per part
1.25 Indirect to support them
A typical company produces 40K cars a week in the US
(12 DL + 15 Ind) x 3 supply levels x 10,000 parts = $810,000 / (40,000 / 3 shifts) = $810,000 / 13,334 = $61 per car
That does not seem like much, but the reality is that this particular company only makes a profit on average of $600 per car. So, this equates to more than 10% of their profits that are already at a paltry 3-4%!
Additionally, this particular company already pays an average of $1,200 per car in tax. The reality is that this is a 5% tax increase on manufacturers!
Thanks again, all of those who reelected King Barack.
No, in this modern and caring, more compassionate Amerika, if one does not comply, outrageous penalties and interest charges commence immediately. The result is the same, ruination of society and our republic.
She’s also a medical doctor.
I really hope that does not happen. We have been very happy with Tricare Prime since I retired. My state rep and both senators will be hearing from me tomorrow. I'd do it now, but have to get ready to go to my part time job in a few minutes.
She has been saying it for years ever since Obamacare was passed. Betsy has been warning people about the real impact of Obamacare. She is an expert in the field. I am surprised that you haven’t heard her on TV and radio telling the public how bad Obamacare will be.
Like lambs to the slaughter.
I paid 30% in taxes during the year last year and STILL had to pay 10 grand. And this year won’t be any better.
Then they'll send the New Black Panther Party to muss ya up.
Actually the Death Panels are genius for the Dems:
By reducing life expectancy, you improve the financials for SocSec and Medicare
Hasten the death of old white people who are more Republican in their voting.
Good analysis...but in reality, this is a tax increase on consumers. Obamacare just goes on and on when it comes to taxes...
I owed the IRS a little once. They were keeping my refunds. I made sure I didn’t get a refund for years.
Question: How will proof be provided for those filing electronically? Or is this another thing they didn’t count on.
It will be handled like any other debt to the IRS, except the IRS agents who come to your door will be shirtless or dressed like Jill Kelley.
A few years back I owed the IRS twice as much as I had in the bank. They invaded my bank account and took everything I had. Yes, they can go into your bank accounts with no warning.
Where have ya been freekitty, she was at the for-front, her and Dr.David Janda, they both read it and tried to warn us...
BTW, Dr. Janda's video that went viral about the Death Panels?....
Funny thing, Dr. Dave got audited last year by the IRS....
Shades of things to come Comrades...
Not to nit-pick, but the sales tax on homes is for above 250k in earnings...
P.S. My CPA gnome tells me their parent organization AIPCA (via newsletter ?) notes that next year between Obamacare and what may happen to the tax code this will cost the average tax payer $3000. Folks, the liberals and Obama OWN THIS, just wait until they start squirming...
And this was written into Obamacare as well. Not to mention the surrendering of your 4th amendment rights to your medical documents...
True, plus you get to blame the evil corporation for increasing their prices!
“As if, it would have been different under Romney. We lost the fight against Obamacare in the primary.”
That’s a crock and you know it. Geez....
Then they will send you a statement of what you owe. If you still don't pay, they will send you a statement of what you owe plus penalties and interest. If you still don't pay, then after maybe a couple more rounds you will get a registered letter from a "special agent" of the IRS, which means criminal proceedings are imminent, and you had better get a lawyer. Expect that to cost one helluva lot more than the initial assessment, even if you don't end up having to go to prison.
See how it will work, now?
She certainly has switched back and forth between the parties.
I have been told this. She has switched parties several times. Wonder whats up with that.
