President Obamas re-election and Democratic gains in the US Senate end any possibility of repealing the Obama health law. It will roll out as written, imposing major changes soon on you and your family. If you are uninsured because you cant afford it, help may be on the way. But if you are one of the 250 million Americans with coverage, there are big problems ahead.
If you get your health insurance through a job, you might lose it as of Jan. 1, 2014. Thats when the new employer mandate kicks in, requiring employers with 50 or more full-time workers to provide the government-designed health plan or pay a fine. The government plan is so expensive, it adds $1.79 per hour to the cost of a full-time employee. Thats incidental if you're hiring neurosurgeons but a hefty increase for hiring busboys and sales clerks.
Currently, employers in retail and fast-food industries pay less than half that to cover their workers.To avoid thecostly mandate,some employers will push workers into part-time status. Other employers will opt for the fine. Either way, workers lose their on-the-job coverage.
Worse, they risklosingtheir jobs.Even the fine adds 98 cents an hour to the cost of labor, enough to make some employers cut back on their workforce.
As many as a third of employers are considering canceling coverage, according to McKinsey & Co. management consultants. But that doesnt mean youll be uninsured; you wont have that choice.
When you file your taxes, you will have to show proof that you are enrolled in the one-size-fits-all plan approved by the federal government. Its mandatory, starting Jan. 1, 2014, or the IRS will withhold your refund....

Funny, you are telling everyone this now, Betsy.
As if, it would have been different under Romney. We lost the fight against Obamacare in the primary.
We get it Betsey. We’re all wards of the state now...
Haven’t had a refund in 20 years.
Regardless of whether or not Obama and his ilk stole this election, there was WAY too much FRAUD happening and that alone is a reason for, if need be extreme and forceful change according to COTUS.
Obama and his cohorts want to move "Forward," they're going to find out what moving forward really means!
I’ve heard her on TV and on the radio discussing Obamacare a couple of times. I think she’s the only one that bothered to read the damn thing all the way through.
She has been AT THE FOREFRONT of this against Obamacare since the start
I watched her discuss for over an hour all the intimate details of Obamacare, and she said she could easily go on for another 2 weeks straight.
She had not only READ the entire thing, but had a hand-written annotated copy nearly half again as thick because of all the yellow sticky notes in it
The media ignored her
She's selling a new book: "Decoding the Obama Health Law: What You Need To Know" ($5.99, Kindle edition).
I'd suggest you do your darnedest not to get sick. (And that advice comes ABSOLUTELY FREE!)
0bama committed government THEFT of 1/6th of our private sector economy and will UNIONIZE IT. MORE SOLDIERS FOR HIS ARMY.
DO NOT COMPLY!
Let the Federalies figure out how to enforce this baloney.
Most didn't care.
Yeah, well, she had to read the bill first to find out what’s in it, right? Even the Supreme Court justices admitted they didn’t read the whole statute!
Ms. McCaughey is the former lieutenant governor of New York and was all over the Clintons when they tried to pass Obamacare in 1993 “in 100 days”! Our form of government depends on an educated populace—which America no longer has, and that’s why the fascists can do what they will with us!
Benefits from communists King Obamaâs America. Free to free loaders.
What if you don't have a refund for them to withhold?
I just found out that my Tricare Prime is going away as soon as April. This was held until after the election and released essentially on veterans day. I am going to be kicked to tricare standard, my costs will go up significantly on doctor visits and prescriptions. This has gotten no press that I know of in the nation media. I would advise all military retirees to look into this ASAP. There may be a chance that congress could stop this but I have no faith in boner. Welcome to the first phase of kicking military retirees onto the national health service.
