"I actually made it through this morning at 8:00 A.M. I have a preexisting condition (Type 1 Diabetes) and my income base was 45K-55K annually I chose tier 2 "Silver Plan" and my monthly premiums came out to $597.00 with $13,988 yearly deductible!!! There is NO POSSIBLE way that I can afford this so I "opt-out" and chose to continue along with no insurance. I received an email tonight at 5:00 P.M. informing me that my fine would be $4,037 and could be attached to my yearly income tax return. Then you make it to the "REPERCUSSIONS PORTION" for "non-payment" of yearly fine. First, your drivers license will be suspended until paid, and if you go 24 consecutive months with "Non-Payment" and you happen to be a home owner, you will have a federal tax lien placed on your home. You can agree to give your bank information so that they can easy "Automatically withdraw" your "penalties" weekly, bi-weekly or monthly! This by no means is "Free" or even "Affordable.""
That is a very good account of the impact for all to read.
’ $13,988 yearly deductible’
This is horrendous!
So very sorry that the feral government now has all your information and can threaten you and track you down until you submit. This shameful oppression of innocent citizens will lead to a massive lack of trust among those who had no idea this would happen.
Do you have a link? (I don’t do Facebook)
Are you ready to pick up a gun and fight them now?
I have chosen to simply pay the graft to the Gov't and not get insurance.
The fine for the first year of no insurance is $95 or 1% of household income, whichever is higher. A fine of 4 grand implies an income of 400 grand.
Trust but verify. Until I see some other stories about the email regarding the drivers license suspension for non payment and the tax lien on your home for non-payment, call me skeptical.
I can easily believe the worst that our government can do, anonymous posting from Facebook? Not so much.
Thanks for posting this. The Obozoliars have been very quiet about the deductible costs for their new medical care slaves.
How could this guy’s fine be over $4,000 when he has a salary of $45,000?!?!
The fine is up to 1% of your salary (not sure if that is Adjusted Gross or total ... I wish someone could find this out for sure).
His max fine sould be no more than $450.
I saw that, too, then read this (below). Not sure what to believe!
HEY LISTEN GUYS!!! A simple search revealed that HealthCare.gov, Will Sheehan, and Penelope Kay are all fictitious. There are no such people on facebook. This is another urban myth being banded about to get people up in arms about Obamacare.
Please, please, please refrain from propagating these lies and check everything before reposting them for all to see.

Thanks for posting. This helps answer my previous question.
Some people will believe anything. Oh, and your dog gets shot on the second anniversary non-payment followed by your wife on the third.
For all you democrat and liberal lurkers out there.
Not one Republican Senator or Representative voted for Obamacare.
And, it is a Democrat president implementing this monstrosity.
IT'S All THE DEMOCRATS FAULT!
It is not George Bush, John Boehner or any republican.
The price of healthcare including deductibles is only going to get worse.
Wow! I though the first year fine was $95?
Another question, was the $14k yearly deductible yours to pay before the insurance kicked in?
“Is it time yet, Claire...?”
Guess who's gonna be paying Obamacare tax...?
What a scam.
