Four Million Americans To Pay ObamaCare Fine In 2016
IBD's Capital Hill ^ | 4/22/2010 | David Hogberg

Posted on 04/22/2010 12:22:45 PM PDT by Slyscribe

AP reports that “4 million Americans — the vast majority of them middle class — will have to pay the new penalty for not getting health insurance when President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law kicks in, according to congressional estimates released Thursday. The penalties will average a little more than $1,000 apiece in 2016, the Congressional Budget Office said in a report.”

Penalties will be phased in from 2014. By 2016, the fine will be $695 or 2.5% of household income, whichever is greater. More than a dozen states are challenging the individual mandate in federal court as unconstitutional.

Please, please come to my door and collect it. I am so lonely since mama got sent to jail for killing papa with a vacuum cleaner. My sister ran off to the big city and the last letter I got from her came from Madame Lucy’s House of Pain. I can’t go to school because my brother burned all my clothes.

So please come; but come at night. That’s the only time I am awake and not sleeping in my coffin.

Maybe one of the shyster, class action (asbestos, etc) lawyers who are always advertising on TV will start up a lawsuit against federal government mandated, unconstitutional coverage. Or maybe the ACLU, you know, those guys who are always looking out for the downtrodden & oppressed....

On second thought, I don’t think I could hold my breath that long.

I think 4 million is low given that companies will gladly rid themselves of dealing with health insurance given the low fines.

It is all guessing. My question is will these people be able to transfer the Medicaid payments over for their own health insurance? If this is sooo great, then why are they raising the percent taken from hard working American citizens to cover the uninsured poor?

“Where would they incarcerate 4 million Americans?”

When talk of the OKC bombing started this week, I watched some documentary stuff on youtube about that, waco and ruby ridge and frankly, I don’t want to know how the gov would solve the incarceration problem, which I believe they are very capable of doing.

They will just keep hiring agents.

Household income eh? Sounds like another round of “unintended consequences” to help destroy the family structure.

People will pay the fine and then shut up. I have no faith in American steadfastness anymore. There will not be nearly enough people rising up against this tyranny.

Pffft, I’m not paying them anything. I have insurance and even if I didn’t I wouldn’t pay. They can come find me down in the Caribbean.

“AP reports that “4 million Americans — the vast majority of them middle class — will have to pay the new penalty for not getting health insurance”

The solution, of course, is for states to seize federal receipts and pay back any money stolen by the fascist IRS. I’d add in penalties and interest. Plus any identifiable IRS pigs would be arrested and face 25 years in prison.
