Skip to comments.Obamacare fee of $63 per person to begin in 2014 (Just for pre-existing conditions)

Your medical plan is facing an unexpected expense, so you probably are, too. Its a new, $63-per-head fee to cushion the cost of covering people with pre-existing conditions under President Obamas health care overhaul.
The charge, buried in a recent regulation, works out to tens of millions of dollars for the largest companies, employers say. Most of that is likely to be passed on to workers...

I voted for Palin and Ryan.
Or voted for the Libertarian guy, Ron Paul or some other no-name third party non-entity.
>>> Only the poor will be exempt because they will have free insurance.
Based on my Christian beliefs, I find health insurance to be a form of gambling like the Muslims do.
Muslims are specifically exempted for this reason in the healthcare law.
I claim the same exemption.
Denying me this right under the religious clause of the healthcare law would be a violation of my civil rights, as well as a violation of the establishment of religion clause in the constitution.
Good Point. Those in the Wagon and those pulling the Wagon.
Who gets to make the call?
Same situation when your glass is at the halfway mark. Are you an optimist or a pessimist, IOW is your glass half full or half empty?
Clue: It all depends on whether your are pouring or drinking.
I noted in the first debate that obama said that he liked the name "Obamacare". Sure, same as pharaoh enjoyed his power over the slaves, determining who lived and who died.
There was an early example of even the Egyptians thwarting pharaohcare, when the midwives told pharaoh that hey, those Hebrew women deliver 'em fast... before we can get there [to kill off the boys].
You have to fill out an exemption form and be approved via a waiver; that is in the 1400+ page monstrosity...
Now the constitutional argument on the other hand is different - you have to show injury to have standing, so get in line and pay your taxes. Oh, and get back to work so the mooch and her effete husband can live and party in Hawaii off taxes taken from your hard-earned paycheck, serf!
midget little person in the room! There were/are both losers.
Surprised to see the local ABC TV news program carry a bit on this tonight - not much longer than the headline, but the sort of story the Regime probably wants to keep quiet and enough to start people thinking and talking.....
“And to those 3 million Republican idiots who stayed home on election night to show what “true Patriots” you were; GO F*CK YOURSELVES!”
>>> You have to fill out an exemption form
Really? Have you seen this form? looked to me like the law explicitly exempts them. Besides, if there is a form, I seriously doubt it has a “Christian” checkbox... so again, I would not be able to fill it out properly.
>>> you have to show injury to have standing
Would 1.5 million unborn babies being decapitated qualify?
I would claim that as injury to my conscience, thus my mental health. Hell.. I’m allready going crazy because of all the murder I’ve allready paid for with my taxes.
Maybe I should just sue.
“No wonder the insurance companies backed this monstrosity.”
That’s right, along with their pushing for their Massachusetts loser.
Any of the insurance companies go out of business in Massachusetts?
Put the blame on where it lies, Mitt Romney and the GOP left.
Just refuting the often heard claim that Romney got 3M less votes than McCain. It was a big story right after the election, with threads here as well.
Romney is actually close to having 1M more votes than McCain.
It will phase out completely in 2017 unless Congress, with lawmakers searching everywhere for revenue to reduce federal deficits decides to extend the fees.
(no worries, they never extend fees....)
Well, ain't that a kicker....
Guess they crunched the numbers and realized the 'tanning tax' wasn't going to completely foot the bill for the entitled.
I wonder if the $5.25/mo will be taken out before or after taxes?
As the old saying goes...If you think health care is expensive now, just wait until it’s free.
It’s asking much too much of a reporter to include such esoteric, highly technical details!
Levin Rule, you Vote your Candidate in the Primary and you Vote your Party's Candidate in the General.
The mistake was very simple, Republicans Hope people are smart, but Democrats Know people are stupid.
Doesn't matter anyway, the Republic as we knew it is over.
Cut other benefits or withhold raises or pass it on to customers. Nothing is free.
Sadly, I'm sure the IRS will have some say on that.
