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.
The land of the BRAVE and the FREE ends..with these mandatory compulsive orders.
And of course the age is a factor too. Is it children 18 and under or 26 and under ?
We’ll just have to pass it to find out what’s in it.
Was that in the original bill? Excuse me?
It is getting close to the time that we need to go Galt.
Oh this is really gettin good! Now the Rats will begin to fully understand that there are no freebees.
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.
Thank you Chief Justice Roberts, you slimy spineless SOB!!!!
Let’s not rush things.
That’s coming in this regimes third term.

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. . . .
I’ve been telling people Obamacare will require IRS Gulags.
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
