Here is your big chance to get behind your retard reps and say, hey lets do it!!!
Thanks for posting.
It's just more hypocrisy from people who lie about health care legislation or just don't understand it.
Talk about retards, ask the administration why a federal judge ruled the whole mess to be unconstitutional? You can't make this thing right by nit-picking the 2,000 + pages and hiring 10,000 IRS agents to put people in jail for not complying. You have to dump it like the judge says and start over without the bribes and corruption inherent in the democrat created bill.
Speaking of not understanding this legislation and making up lies.....
Who is getting put in jail?
Why do you think the administration needs IRS agents to administer a health care bill? Think about it. To give the law some enforcement teeth. If a person refuses to buy government insurance, the IRS will take the money through income tax. If the person still refuses, his property can be confiscated. If he refuses violently you know what can happen.
LOL, so much wrong with this....
You realize that there is no such thing as this. People will be buying private insurance. You do know that much, right? I'll assume your wording was just a mistake.
Go ahead and show me which part of the bill that says anything remotely close to what you claim. That someones property will be confiscated or they will be put in jail for not purchasing health insurance.
I think the point is if some try to take a stand against this clearly unconstitutional provision, what will happen to them? I keep trying to think of how this will work in practice. Will it be a question on your tax forms each year? So what happens if in some manner or other you don't buy insurance and you refuse to pay the fine/tax?
If you choose to not purchase health insurance your tax burden will just be a bit more. No one is going to jail or having their house taken away.
"Those without coverage pay a tax penalty of the greater of $695 per year up to a maximum of three times that amount ($2,085) per family or 2.5% of household income. The penalty will be phased-in according to the following schedule: $95 in 2014, $325 in 2015, and $695 in 2016 for the flat fee or 1.0% of taxable income in 2014,
2.0% of taxable income in 2015, and 2.5% of taxable income in 2016. Beginning after 2016, the penalty will be increased annually by the cost-of-living adjustment. Exemptions will be granted for financial hardship, religious objections, American Indians, those without coverage for less than three months, undocumented immigrants, incarcerated individuals, those for whom the lowest cost plan option exceeds 8% of an individuals income, and those with incomes below the tax filing threshold (in 2009 the
threshold for taxpayers under age 65 was $9,350 for singles and $18,700 for couples)."
You keep implying they'll just collect the tax? HOW? How will the IRS determine if you bought insurance or not? How will they collect the money from you?
When you file your tax return.
"The legislation requires that the penalty, if any, be reported on federal income tax returns, and paid at tax filing time. However, individuals who fail to pay the penalty will not be subject to criminal penalties, liens, or levies"
