    I have been asking that same question from the onset of this crap... Not one person can tell me. If I ever find it I will post it. One thing I did read is that if healthcare cost is over 8% of your adj. gross income then the penelty that is supposed to be applied is waved. Because making $2000 a month and healthcare for just me and my wife is over $560 a month I literaly don't have it. If I did I would get it.

    Nothing

    Employer Mandate Tax(Jan 2014): If an employer does not offer health coverage, and at least one employee qualifies for a health tax credit, the employer must pay an additional non-deductible tax of $2000 for all full-time employees. This provision applies to all employers with 50 or more employees. If any employee actually receives coverage through the exchange, the penalty on the employer for that employee rises to $3000. If the employer requires a waiting period to enroll in coverage of 30-60 days, there is a $400 tax per employee ($600 if the period is 60 days or longer).

    eh... since everyone here is expert...

    just thought i'd mention our health care is the most expensive in the world and we're the only civilzed country

    do you think it's cheaper to let everyone uninsured use our emergency rooms for their primary care?

    or do you think it's good for us to have half of the filed bankruptcies in this country be the result of unanticipated medical care?

    do you think that saves us money?

    or is it better for us if people can pay their bills?

    of course, we can 'let them die'.

    So lemme see if I got this right...

    ... the individual mandate which will cause a hardship on millions of Americans was allowed to stand...

    ... while the Medicaid clause which would create a hardship for 50 states was stuck down...

    ... does that pretty well sum it up?
    :confused:

    The tax mandate will cost you more in the long run than you will want to pay.

    ALL of it for every one involved. Employers will payl less to cover employers resulting in hiring more. People are paying for healthcare now and cannot pay decuctables and co payment will be able to. Affordable for the 56 million that will be covered that was not covered. How can anyone put a price on the health of people? Healthy people are more productive at work.
    Every one win with obamacare. My daughter will be covered for her pre existing heart condition, my grand daughter will be able to continue full time in nursing school and able to get healthcare for a healthcare problem by staying on her mother plan.
    Except may big healthcare corporation who will not be able to pay CEO big bonuses and make big profits.:clap2::clap2:

    Taxes paid by all by spreading it across board will result in people paying less?:cuckoo:
    we are paying more now for the uninsured because all of us are not paying.

    If you want to raise a million dollars (Lottery) and a million people pay a dollar.....get it?

    does it hurt much twisting yourself into a pretzel that way?
