PASS IT ON!! A post from the Obamacare 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."
So, if I understand this correctly, just the fact that this individual made the 1st contact with the website, they now know everything about them and that starts the "angry pay-back if you don't finish enrolling" e-mail threatening them. Watch out friends, never underestimate the IRS!

Affordable Care Act Affordable Care Act FAQs What’s the penalty for not having health insurance? What’s the penalty for not having health insurance?June 26, 2013
The tax penalties go into effect in 2014, which means, if you’re uninsured for more than three months in 2014, you may incur the tax penalty and that penalty would be applied when you file your 2014 income tax return.
If you don’t qualify for an exemption to the Affordable Care Act’s mandate to purchase qualifying health coverage, then you will be subject to a tax penalty.
The penalty is phased-in over a three year period.
In 2014, the penalty will be the greater of 1.0% of taxable income or $95 per adult and $47.50 per child (up to $285 per family).
In 2015, the penalty will be the greater of 2.0% of taxable income or $325 per adult and $162.50 per child (up to $975 per family).
In 2016, the penalty will be at the greater of 2.5% of taxable income or $695 per adult and $347.50 per child (up to $$2,085 per family).
After 2016, the penalty will be increased annually by the increase to the cost-of-living.
Households with incomes above 400% of FPL will be exempt from paying tax penalties if insurance in their area costs more than 8% of their taxable income, after taking into account employer contributions or tax credits.
People will be able to apply for exemptions to the tax penalty if
1.they have financial hardships,
3.if they’re an American Indian,
4.if they’re uninsured for less than three months,
5.if they’re an undocumented immigrant,
6.if they’re incarcerated.
Funny thing J Cali is a blue State let them flounder in their own slop I checked the number btw it's a legit phone line,that is very sad that this unconstitutional socialist law signed into being on Christmas eve 2009 against the will of the people not supporting it after it was rewritten numerous times by lobbyist before the Supreme Court passed as Constitutional without reading the over 2,000 page communist pamphlet makes you wonder how much more of this BS will the American people tolerate?before total mayhem,bloodshed and violence spills into the streets..
I'd say not much longer........................LMAO
I hear bear....Sad thing Doc C. and a few others warned about this a year ago......Ohh well I still cannot fathom what it will take for these demoncrat supporters to open their eyes and wake up....Perhaps a start is to stop listening to the things that brainwash them such as Obama and MSNBC.....Cause the facts are out coming out now.....Although it is too late for the losers that think they won...

I am going into hiding with my "pre-existing" condition....constipation and hemorrhoids from being shafted by progs from the kindness of their hearts.....hehehehehe
This could be the prelude to a crisis and a reason for martial law, (to "calm" things down, aka herd us to the gulags), jmho. GOD help America!
J,, it's a fkin mess and that arrogant a()SS Obutthead insists that it is good for America ,, this dam thing will collapse and then we can finally get someone in there that knows about patient care and fix this thing,, in the meantime, all working folks will suffer,,
C, my feeling is this is a long and well planned attack on the freedoms of this country with the abolishment of the Constitution as one of its goals. Martial law is coming and soon. I don't know if these gullible fools realize it, but for all sense and purpose they have given their country away. Difficult times are ahead and whether there is resistance or not remains tro be seen. One thing I fervently hope is a law is introduced that anyone running for the presidency must be vetted,
A cruel way to reduce and control the population...A very wealthy prog once said in an interview that the earth was designed for 2 Billion and with the world population at 7 billion then, some thing has to be done to reduce that number....hmmmmm. So who goes?
The whole scam was NEVER about health or good, for America.
Here is my take....America yearned for "love" after GW, but found sinister and a frustrated passion. A hypocritical gesture of a passionate injured anti colonialist....hehehehehehe. TRUTH is slowly rising to the TOP....GOD bless America!
