I hope he isn't going to make me pay for health insurance when I'm in the poverty level. That would be a bunch of crap. Making people that make over $20,000 a year pay for insurance , I'm all for that, but not some poor bastards that are barely getting by as it is. Am I going to be forced to buy health insurance?
Apparently you are unaware that each state will have an insurance exchange to offer low cost basic health plans in 2014. You get a tax credit subsidy depending on your income. If you are low income you may have a hardship exemption. Since you are single and under $15,000 in income you will qualify for Medicaid in 2014 if your state accepts the funding for it.
But if you dont buy insurance and pay the tax penalty, do you expect to see a doctor or go to a hospital for free? That is the current problem. The hospitals then bill the taxpayers for some of that, plus they increase the cost of their services which is passed on to higher rates for insured people. Thats why insurance is so high.
