So, have you been reading the comments on Facebook concerning this “affordable” healthcare?
It’s interesting that so many Americans are against this, yet Democrats want to kiss king Obama and push it when it seems the majority of Americans do not want this. This piece of forced legislation is designed to help, under the guise of helping all Americans with no insurance. Those lazy Americans who get a free ride!
This law is going to hurt the decent people who have worked hard, overcome obstacles and made something of their lives so they could live the American dream.
If you don’t sign up for this joke? Here’s an example from one person: I have a pre-existing condition (Type 1 Diabetes), my income was $45,000-$55,000 annually. I chose tier two “silver plan.” Monthly premiums came out to $597 with $13,988 yearly deductible! There is no possible way that I can afford this. I “opt-out” and chose no insurance.
I received an email tonight at 5 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. If you go 24 consecutive months with “non-payment” and you happen to be a homeowner, 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 “affordable.” Garnished wages, taxes added to your returns, loss of home and assets? Wow! This is a great health care act isn’t it?
I understand something needs to be done, but this stinks.
