"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."

You know it is false for several reasons but one immediately sticks out. ObamaCare is a federal program to provide private medical insurance to people with pre-existing conditions, such as a diabetic. But it has no authority over state issued drivers licenses. So we know this is nothing but a false claim used for fear mongering. Republicans cannot be trusted. Also we know this is a false and misleading post because no one in authority has ever claimed that ObamaCare is "Free". It is using private insurance for-profit businesses and is not a single payer system. I seriously doubt the claim about the yearly deductible also. Doesn't sound realistic. Other aspects that make this unlikely to be a real situation come from the lack of information about what state the person is in and other missing information that has been deliberately left out to hide that this post is a lie.
