Try over 300.00. Last years penalty was over 170.00
The % goes up every year
It started at 95 or 1% of taxable income whatever is GREATER
now it's up to 695 or 2.5% of taxable income whatever is GREATER
sorry but I don't want to be penalized for "not buying insurance"
when that isn't the only way to pay for and provide for health care
Given that this insurance mandate doesn't cover all people
and all costs anyway, it is clear we STILL NEED OTHER OPTIONS
and SOLUTIONS set up to cover the greater needs and demands.
So if these are needed, why penalize these other choices?
I think the insurance companies should have a $100 a month option that only covers emergencies. Everything else is out of pocket
"Why does it have to be based on populations who didn't agree to be part of the program?"
Because you're either Americans, or you aren't.
I don't agree with the contortions some Americans go through to protect their right to sashay around WalMart with semi-automatic weapons.
I don't agree with Americans who think it's kewl to attack other sovereign nations because their leaders lie to them about WMD.
"It is always easier to destroy than to create."
Those of us who believe in creation rather than destruction are forced to put up with the rest of you.
The Ammon Bundys, unfortunately, are as much Americans as we are.
The best we can hope for is to balance them out.
They used to, in some states.
Deregulation killed that option.
That's not much of an answer. And it's a worthwhile question. Why are some people justified in forcing other people to join their idea of a good insurance plan? Because that's what's going on. This isn't something that truly requires conformity. This isn't like going to war, or laws against murder. It's perfectly feasible for people to decide for themselves how they want to fund their health care and government should protecting that freedom rather than violating it.
Yes....but Obama is cutting costs.....ROTFLMAO
Mandatory health insurance pays for mandatory C-section childbirth, mandatory circumcision, mandatory tooth-pulling, mandatory incarceration of social undesirables and the mentally ill, and all sorts of other mandatory butchery by doctors whose medical competence lies in the direction of brutality and murder rather than healing and life-saving.
If the health insurance available on the market truly offered anything whatsoever to our benefit, then surely we as the "consumers" of such marvelous services would be intelligent enough to seek them out on our own without having them forced upon us under color of law.
I see this is an old thread, so lets say you are in an auto accident , should they bring you to the er or just let you die,
and if they bring you to the er to save your life due to a fractured hip and broken pelvis , while in the hosp for your broken hip and pelvis they also discover you have abnormal lab work and doing a scan for your ribs see you also have a spot in your breast and a lymph node is enlarged in your armpit, the dx is breast cancer. They also suspect adult onset diabetes.
What do you do??
Bring it in for an oil change, and you need a front-end alignment, radiator coolant flush, brake job, and if you don't PAY for all that work you find out someone has slit your brakehose partway through with a knife, it bursts open on the highway and you can't stop.
