Cybercast News Service ^ | January 31, 2013 | Matt Cover

Posted on 01/31/2013 7:11:08 PM PST by Olog-hai

In new, final regulations issued Wednesday, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) said that parents must pay a federal fine under Obamacare if their children or dependent spouses are uninsured for any part of the year.

The regulations clarify provisions of Obamacare that seem to say that a parent will be held liable for Obamacare’s individual mandate penalty if they don’t have insurance coverage for their children.

Why don’t they just cut to the chase and have your employer send your paycheck to them, and they’ll forward the amount they think you deserve.

When you owe the feral government money merely by continuing to breathe, the time has come to see to it that the feral government doesn’t.

They just keep piling it on..

In the "old days" Americans had the guts to let Washington know when they were pissed.. today of course there's Big Sis, Gitmo, and a Marxist-Alinsky nutcase street agitator as president whose administration just order thousands of real assault weapons and hundreds of millions of hollow point ammo. . . .

King Obama is finished. Does this mean that even if the parents are not working they have to provide insurance for their kids as well as themselves? Total confusion.

From the article:
“For 2014, parents could face a penalty of either $47.50 per child – under 18 – up to $285 total.”

So I guess up to 18 years of age

I don't think so but I believe they were able to finalize “Rules” and this is a new rule that was just added
or made final. This whole thing is just a mess and by the time it all shakes out my family will have no more income left.

Screw the stupid democrats, Obama and No Justice Roberts and double pox on Roberts!!!!!!

Eh, I thought it was a tax, Justice Roberts?!? They are calling this a fine. Taxes must be levied by Congress, right? Not the IRS?

Pay up suckers!! Uh, err, I mean taxpayers, um, I mean serfs. Pay up or else.

Our forefathers would have been shooting the bastards by now.

But now we have to deal with these socialists, and their free sh!t army. It’s gonna be a long, uphill battle from here.

Yes everyone has to have insurance it is mandated in
Obamacare. If you are not working I guess you would have to get a Medicaid or Medicare card so the government or the taxpayers would pay for you but you will have to have something. The government owns us all now Ugh.

You kiddies just on’t unbderstand (and neither does the author).
You have to pay the penalty for ANY one you can claim as a dependent.

Basically any relative you support for more than half of their income.

I laid it out in this thread http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2984027/posts

In a few days the media will probably get around to telling people.

With this fortune of extra money coming into health care you can be sure that Americans are going to get the very best of care!/ NOT!!!

The money will manage to be sucked away into who knows where and the health care system will likely be unrecognizably horrible in a short amount of time, with tons of excuses, and a constant call for more and more money.

I think it’s time for another amendment to the Constitution.

Something like the “right to healthcare freedom”.

don’t sign your kids up for SS when they are born.
Then you can’t claim them as a dependent.

Lashanda gets a subsidy. Does she not get one for her kids.

Those that are really going to be hit are those making more than 400% of the poverty level. For single person that is under 44k.

The USA is dead. We were too busy to notice until it was too late. We are no longer citizens, we are livestock on a tax farm.

If I ever again hear people chanting “USA USA USA!!!”, I will probably puke.
