This is another actual story of a person who was able to learn about this wonderful program we will love after they did get on the website:
I actually made it through this morning at 8:00 A.M. I have a preexisting condition (Type 1 Diabetes) and my income base was 45K-55K annually I chose tier 2 “Silver Plan” and my monthly premiums came out to $597.00 with $13,988 yearly deductible!!! There is NO POSSIBLE way that I can afford this so I “opt-out” and chose to continue along with no insurance. I received an email tonight at 5:00 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 driver’s license will be suspended until paid, and if you go 24 consecutive months with “Non-Payment” and you happen to be a home owner, 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 even “Affordable".
Remember reading about the times of Franklin Roosevelt. I am sure you do, but probably not this fact. Roosevelt had people jailed when they sold some products for less than the price set by his regime. One of those jailed was a tire store owner who was unable to sell for less than the government price. There were others as well. Is this the next step in Obamacare; if you do not have the funds to pay the penalties, do you go to jail? Stay tuned for the next horror stay in this emerging totalitarian state.
