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?

 If you currently have a plan, you should be all set. However, be ready for you plan to make some dramatic changes because it probably will. Usually, the first sign will be doubling to quadrupling ( or more) deductibles. It is happening all over my state, already.

It's true, unless you are already covered by insurance.  I have a BIG problem with the government requiring people to buy anything.  One more step in our freedom going away.  (And no, I didn't vote for Obama, partly for this reason)

what the hell does that have to do with anything? Some of us are business owners families running the business. Most of us CANNOT AFFORD health insurance.

Obama is a fuck tard.

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.

It's true. And therefore a lot of people will get laid off.
