Fw: Obamacare

Subject: Obamacare
A comment posted on the Affordable Care Act/Obamacare FB page:
"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 drivers 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."

False, of course.


You know ACA must be pretty good because the GOP keeps lying about it.

So the fine is $4037? The first year fine is 1% of total income.

So according to this your income was (or will be) $400370 next year.

And you can't afford insurance? Either you're a liar or you really suck at math. Probably both.

This person's preexisting condition was irrelevant for the first time ever! Yay for progress! He/she doesn't seem to mention that though...

The rest is all bullshit, of course. Maybe he/she should go on Sean Hannity's show and they can share some outrage over the hardships that are caused by having health insurance?

Oh, and let's pretend that those rates/deductibles are correct for a moment... it's almost surely still cheaper than "paying as you go" with type 1 diabetes and all of the maladies that come along with it. See, President O saving baggers money and all they can do is complain...
