And anyone supporting a relative, who has fallen on hard times, is required to pay the penalty:
“... b. Liability for shared responsibility payment
i. Liability for dependents
Under section 5000A(b)(3)(A), if an individual with respect to whom the shared
responsibility payment is imposed for a month is another individual’s dependent (as
defined in section 152) for the taxable year including that month, the other individual is
liable for the shared responsibility payment for the dependent. The proposed
regulations clarify that a taxpayer is liable for the shared responsibility payment imposed
with respect to any individual for a month in a taxable year for which the taxpayer may
claim a personal exemption deduction for the individual (that is, the dependent) for that
taxable year. Whether the taxpayer actually claims the individual as a dependent for
the taxable year does not affect the taxpayer’s liability for the shared responsibility
payment for the individual.”
Obama is turning us into slaves.
You and me both! In fact, I think the number of unsympathetic Americans is growing. Elections have consequences!
Who really cares?
TAXERS for ALL but THEMSELVES:
"Not OUR families, you worthless maggots (taxpayers)."
Boner and the House hold the Purse Strings. Why doesn't Boner hold to his previous promise to not fund ObamaCare?
This is a question that would better be asked of Boner.

Different Day - Same Pile
“Unless I missed something I think that $20k per family is for premiums that go to private insurers not into the Treasury.”
I’m just putting the numbers in some perspective.
Here are some more - todays expenditures ($2.7T per year) it works out to $471M per registered hospital, or nearly $8,000 per bed per day (365days per year).
Seriously where does it all go?
The irony is I'm going to have to emigrate to Panama or somewhere I can afford the health insurance premiums (and the level and quality of care in some of those plans isn't that shabby).
It's all gonna be one big blinding blizzard of BS that's going to take decades to decipher even when they decide to go to single payer in a desperate attempt to clean up the mess!!!
What you're seeing right here is the very reason so many of us drove across the nation in those stiffling days of May in 2010 when we could ill afford to, to protest this obamination that was driven down everyone's throats in the dead of night!!!
Yet we have a Supreme Court "justice" with a blatant conflict of interest backing up some of the richest Democrats in the history or our national CONgress doing this evil which will totally trash our economy right along with all the GovernMental EnvironMental that were already trying to ruin what economy we had up till now!!!
Now they just "whip-saw'' us till we can't withstand the onslaught!!!
‘The cheapest plan is about 80% of my income.’
They have a death panel for that.
I would suggest a cosmological phenomena that draws in everything around it, including light, but I don't want to say anything racist.
My RX deductible is about 340.00. So I figure, just pay the premiums, take my prescription to Walmart and SKIP the deductible until I need it.
So, since Median Household income is $49K, the IRS assumes that a family will spend 40.8% of its pre-tax income on Healthcare?
Someone should have read the monstrosity before they passed it!
What do YOU pay in all those other taxes that are assessed: income tax - federal, state and city, sales tax, personal property tax, automobile stickers/inspections/tags, driver’s license “fees”, add-on taxes to telephone, television, internet, utility services, hotel occupancy taxes...
Perhaps we should each sit down and really EVALUATE/CALCULATE the TAXES we pay.
Will you have any money remaining for food, shelter, and clothing?
I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that I am totally dismayed by the current state of our situation.
I WANT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OUT OF MY LIFE! (except for national security)
“By 2025 third world health care, will feel like home for the majority of Americans. Well be like Africa, China, India, Mexico and all other utopias citizens of the world immigrated from. No more racist, greedy America.
Actually US healthcare will be worse. In third world countries prescription drugs here are available over the counter at much lower prices. People self medicate except for extremely severe conditions. It is doubtful the FDA will allow prescription drugs to be sold over the counter and big pharma, allied with big government, will keep US drug prices high.
This means the hospital has only to stabilize the patient (so the expectation is that the patient will not die within 24 hours) and then discharge them. If they do not need life-sustaining stabilization in the first place they can be evaluated and then discharged immediately. This happens every single day in every single hospital.
It doesn’t look to me like ya’ll understand the program. Or, maybe I don’t. If you pay the penalty you will still be covered under the Bronze plan. So, in this case, the Bronze plan will cost the family 2,400 bucks. The cost of the plan to the government is approximated at 20,000. Or you can keep your own coverage if you choose.
