Surely Obama is not going to require this.....? ****UPDATED****

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Someone said that Obamacare is going to require you to buy insurance or pay a fine?

HUH? This has got to be a rumor?

What do you do if you can't aford to buy it?  My dh only makes 38,000 a year and I am a SAHM and going to work is out of the question.


UPDATE:

First, thanks everyone for responding. THis is very educational.

2nd, I don't know if this is a rumor or not, but I heard that Denny's restaurant is going to cut hours of people because of the tax?!? Here is the link:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2233221/Dennys-charge-5-Obamacare-surcharge-cut-employee-hours-deal-cost-legislation.html

In the article (kinda towards the end) the Denny's guy said they would have to pay $5000 an employee per year for insurance?????????????? Surely that is NOT TRUE? $5000 a year per person for health insurance? So ifyou have 50 employees then you have to pay like $250,000 a year more for insurance? Is this true? Where is the money going to come from if this is true?

OMG, LMAO you have no clue what you are talking about.  There is a fine!

Quoting Anonymous:

No...this is not correct.

Insurance companies are required to take people with pre-existing conditions and the only fine I know of is if companies offshore American jobs to China.

Obama is for the people.

BUT the employers will have to pay the balance of the insurance premiums.   Which means, more and more will reduce 1) full time employees, 2) reduce the number of employees.

If the governtment requires and employee who is currently paying $30 of a $60/month policy to only charge the employee $15.   The premium isn't going to go down so the employer is now paying $45.     


And YES - if your employer does NOT provide you with insurance, and you don't buy it yourself, the government will fine you.

Welcome to socialism (light) - but still socialism.

No but I have never seen this in the news, and yes I watch the news

 Like, real news? You missed the year long fight in Congress? You  missed the bill passing and then the month long debacle of the SCOTUS? Not sure what channel you watch, but I would find a new one.
