Consumer penalties: Part of the controversy surrounding health care reform was that the law would mandate coverage for all Americans on pain of penalties. Those penalties will be tiered and rise over a three-year period that kicks off in 2014, according to the National Association of Consumer Protection:
2014: Families$285 or 1 percent of total household income, whichever is greater. Individual adults$95. 2015: Families$975 or 2 percent of income, whichever is greater. Individual adults$325. 2016: Families$2,085 or 2.5 percent of income, whichever is greater. Individual adults$695.

Not ME ... I’m going to be the Ring Leader to Burn The Prison that I am Incarcerated in.
I WILL NOT BUY, NOR WILL I PAY the FINE. PERIOD
And those fines aren’t enough to pay for anything, so in addition to that we’ll all be paying a hell of a lot more even if we have insurance!
I heard today that Capital Gains Taxes will top out at 43% for “high earners”. Gotta pay for all that FREE stuff they’re handing out.
I am not aware of what determines a “high earner”. In today’s world I would assume that is anybody with a full time job.
So what does this mean to the very poor, say between $7 and $10,000 a year individuals?
I hate to tell you this, but so far as I know, there is no exemption like that. I’ve been out of the US for two years, and still have to file federal returns every year on my foreign income. The only break is that the first $91k of that income is exempted from US tax. If you have different info, I’d sure love to see it, as having to file for foreign income that is fully exempted is a hassle.
That was the point, and why the insurance companies, and others standing to profit have been for it all along.
We've been bamboozled. 2,700 pages of it, followed by what is it now, more than 10,000 additional pages of rules?
Who can make war against this beast?
But before they can get around to doing that (not that it is all that far off into the future);
They'll lien your bank accounts, and or your wages (if you work for a paycheck.
Next up --- refusing business "licenses", then even your driver's license.
Also the part of the article that says there's a penalty after 2018 if your employee gives you an expensive healthcare plan! I guess this is the so-called “Cadillac Plan”? When I checked last year, I think we had what was then considered a “Cadillac Plan”. Screw you, Obama! And I have never said that about an American President! I “respected the office”.
That means they have only 15% of their Gross Income to pay for Buildings Employees, Lawyers, paper clips etc.
They have to increase their Plan Premiums in order to expand that 15% so they can survive. No Business can last with such a narrow margin.
My B-I-L works for one of the bigger Insurers. He deals with Insurance Brokers who are up in arms about how confusing the Obamacare rules are. He simply tells them that HHS is supposed to provide clarity on the rules and they aren't. It's a cluster f**k from the word go and it won't get any better.
I guess we “had to pass it so that we can see what’s in it”(?)
“I hope not because Im a expat and next year hopefully, wont have to file another tax return”
I have not filed a tax return in the past ten years, but I do receive SS, since 2008.
Who pays her premium?
Remember that the cost to mandate that everyone buy insurance is almost $2 Trillion!I
We are all Soviets, make that Cubans, no make that North Koreans now.
This is the reason that so many retired citizens have simply emmigrated and no longer live in the United States.
“Just wait until all the moonbats who voted for Obama get hit with this tax.”
If you don’t pay taxes, the mandate doesn’t apply to you. Swell, huh? His moonbats pay nothing, for the most part.
Prior to this new act we were the tenth freest nation on Heritage’s list.
This has to knock us down a few pegs.
We were no longer in the Free category, we had slid to the mostly free category.
Turn the lights out - it’s over.
[Serious questions: The welfare mother with six kids with six different last names: Who pays her premium? The newly arrived immigrant (both legal and illegal) without a dime on them: Who pays?]
These people will go to the emergency room for “free” treatment. People in this subculture who don’t like to wait for treatment in the emergency room simply call a “free” ambulance. When those new clients crammed into the “expanded” Medicaid program can’t find a doctor or have to wait three weeks to see one they will go to the “free” emergency room.
