How can you afford Obamacare fines if you're already living hand to mouth?

Postby ysgawyn » Wed Oct 24, 2012 4:38 am

And you've opted to give up health insurance as a way to stay afloat?

Underwater mortgage, maxed out credit cards, high utility bills, escalating grocery bills, high gasoline costs, etc. You have a job but every dime is spent even before the check hits your hand.

Many many many Americans are in this situation right now.

You can't obviously.

But unless you are in a union and can get a waiver, you are out of luck.

Yeah....that makes perfect sense. A voter ID card is what....$10? But it's discriminatory to make people buy that. Not so much insurance which costs hundreds of dollars a month.

OBAMACARE is a terrible thing, because it creates an enormous, inefficient Bureaucracy. It is wasteful, expensive, and corrupt.

So you might think I am against Affordable Heath Care - WRONG.

I live in Massachusetts, and I am on ROMNEYCARE. It has been an enormous SUCCESS. My premiums have gone way down, and my coverage has improved dramatically.

Health Care on a STATE-BY-STATE basis makes a lot of sense - and works here in the Bay State.

You would either be exempt or you would be eligible for a subsidy. Keep track of your bills, expenses, and bank accounts; they'll want that information.

Of course, your 'strategy' will backfire if someone in your family gets seriously ill. Instead of barely keeping afloat, you will lose *everything*.

And if you get sick your hand to mouth turns into foot in a$s. If you have limited finances, there will be available subsides. You are looking a gift horse in the mouth. How stupid.

If you make $75k and blow it all and can't afford health care, then you deserve to die. You are of no benefit to anyone.

If you cannot afford to buy health insurance YOU WILL NOT BE FINED! You will however be given a tax break in order to be able to buy insurance.

You may be eligible for the Medicaid expansion if your income is under $15K for a single person and your state participates. You are allowed to claim a hardship exemption and not pay the fine.

Once again, something the government does supposedly to help the middle class helps destroy it. Sorry for your troubles but I am afraid that it is not likely that anything major will change.

It will be even harder when your employer cuts you back to 29 hours a week to avoid having to pay the enormous extra costs he will face. Did you know that Obamacare considers 30 hr/wk to be full time?
