Under the Affordable Care Acts individual mandate, people are either required to obtain health insurance or risk a tax penalty from the IRS

Taxation without representation.
Don’t worry, just tell them that your hard disk drive crashed and you will get around to it eventually.
They’ll postpone it. That was their intent when they created the law, to be able to change it at will.
Squeezing money out of the poor and desperate. It’s a sound strategy — the poor and desperate will go running to the polls to vote for Democrats so that they can get more “free stuff”.
One of these days they will realize why they are so poor and desperate — but so far that day has not come.
good luck with that
The law states that the only way the IRS can collect fines is to seize income tax refunds. If you play your cards right and end up not having a refund or owing a small amount, there is nothing the IRS can do.
What happens if you can’t afford it? I’d rather have a cookie.
Take it out of their EBT accounts. We are at war with obesity anyhoo.
isn't this the part of the ACA that Judge Roberts called a tax?
This should wake up many people.
” If you play your cards right and end up not having a refund or owing a small amount, there is nothing the IRS can do.”
Uh,,,,, I wouldn’t count on that! They’ll find a way to fine you, and the late penalties are huge!
“Taxation without representation.”
Not according to Chief Justice Roberts.
meanwhile illegal aliens get $250-1000 a day spent on them
Suppose nobody pays it?
You can’t squeeze blood out of an unemployed rock.
Yeh good luck with that. The House is taking the enforcement away from the IRS. All they can do is take it out of your tax refund. If you don’t have a refund they are screwed.
Since Roberts decided it was a tax, will we be able to deduct the cost of insurance on our tax returns?
Apparently they have the ability to change the law at their whim.
Yes, we all heard that. The chief autocratic kritocrat that all the GOP-e was trying to convince us was “conservative-leaning”. The same guy who would not insist on Obama retaking the oath of office in public, interestingly enough.
Just another Obama tax on the Middle Class, nothing more nor less.
Everyone refuse to pay the fine and your taxes and put the IRS out of a job...I’ve about had enough of this administration’s $hit. It’s as though they are trying to pick at The American People trying every hour of the day to provoke them to finally snap so they can declare martial law. BTW there have been reports by credible sources of signs with Martial Law and This Area Declared Under Martial Law from credible sources lately that are not rumors. A trooper in Colorado pulled a truck with Mexican plates over and saw a very large number of signs going to a warehouse in Chicago and another batch numbering in the thousands was observed in a truck in Wisconsin. Tell me something isn’t up.
Bill me. I have to much debt already.
I had to purchase temporary insurance since my employer does not offer a group health plan and my enrollment did not fall within an open enrollment period.
My insurance broker told me that the policies available as temporary care do not meet Obamacare’s minimum qualifications and I am going to be ‘taxed’ anyway even though I have health insurance.
close your bank accounts, increase dependents to lower withheld amounts,and don’t pay it.
second way is if you’re a christian, to drop insurance altogether and go into one of three health-sharing ministries recognized by obamacare and be covered that way.
“five or more members can be fined up to $12,240.”
Wait till this hits them right where they live. I’m going to laugh my ass off.
Huh? I thought it was a ‘fine’ first off. Then of course I learned it was a ‘tax’.
Thought it was $95.00 the first year and went up from there each year.
Screw ‘em. I will NEVER EVER EVER be forced to buy barrycare and the $2500.00 tax thing? Pfft - yea sure
Obama doesn’t care about the average American.
Marxists never do!
If the premiums for a silver plan (memory getting a little hazy) would be more than about 8.5% of gross adjusted income, the penalty/fee is waived.
Where do I find out more?
Interesting. I hope it waits 8 months so I can escape Mexifornia. The people here will just cave. Where I’m going, they’ll fight back.
Obama doesnt care about the average American.
No he doesn’t, and neither do liberal Democrat hypocrites or the GOPe.
We still have an IRS....why?
Meanwhile, Boehner says Obamacare is “the law of the land” rather than fight this POS legislation 24/7. The GOP is dead. They can’t even wage a logical, factual, effective debate on policy when the opponent is dead.
Does anyone know where Boehner stands on Obamacare?
The gift that keeps on giving
One of them is Medishare. I looked on their website and there are no doctors or hospitals anywhere near me that participate with them.
Watch the seize Social Security, Medicare, Pensions, IRAs, 401Ks, paychecks, liens on assets etc. They’ll find a way to get “their money”. It’s been bountied about in Congress for several years. SHTF when that crap happens.

"In a last-minute policy change, the Obama administration waived the so-called individual mandate under the Affordable Care Act for people whose individual health insurance policy is being canceled.
The act requires most Americans to have qualified health insurance starting in 2014 or pay a tax penalty, unless they meet one of myriad exemptions. One is if qualifying coverage would cost more than 8 percent of household income (the affordability exemption). Another is they can prove a hardship such as homelessness, bankruptcy, domestic violence, large medical debts, utility shutoff notice or death in the family.
Under new guidance issued late Thursday, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) said that having an individual insurance policy canceled now qualifies for the hardship exemption.
People who qualify for the cancellation hardship exemption have two options:
-- Don't buy coverage and don't pay a fine.
-- Buy a bare-bones catastrophic policy on an exchange.
These catastrophic policies do not meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act, but people who buy them won't owe a fine. Before Thursday's rule change, to buy this policy a person had to be younger than 30 or meet the affordability exemption.
To qualify for the new policy-cancellation exemption, consumers must complete a hardship application, which will let them purchase a catastrophic plan or receive a penalty waiver, according to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
(For the application, see http://1.usa.gov/19YrBnK.)
Gee, I wonder what will happen when all the Illegal Aliens only get half of their $5,000 Earned Income Tax Credit?
I would include all the Welfare Mothers, but they’re already on Food Stamps, Section 8 and Medicaid. The extra $5,000 EITC is just walking around money anyway.
Meanwhile, the working people will get screwed. What a great country Obama has created. We are so fortunate. /s
I’ve been a member for 2 years, and I had a major medical need shared a few months ago (tumor and 1/3 of my right lung removed). I was able to pay every penny thanks to my brothers and sisters in Christ; and in addition to the financial burden being lifted, I also received hundreds of notes and cards and prayers and Bible verses that were a great comfort to me and my family. In the spirit of full disclosure, I began working for this company in March of this year...so, yes, I’m biased! Here’s a great article in Philanthropy Magazine:
Families not on welfare that have 3 or more kids obviously can afford a THIRTEEN THOUSAND DOLLAR FINE.
Lefties - you’re satanic. Have a nice eternity.
This should give you a general idea of where Boner stands...

Thank you for the info. We will be using it for sure.
Expect the administration to interpret the law so that the tax penalty will be rescinded if they sign up.
Some people might call this extortion or coercion by the government. Obama will call this an executive order to implement the law at his discretion.
