I keep hearing not to go through the Obamacare website for Health Ins. That its affordable. At the moment we have no insurance. We make too much to qualify for anything. Anyone have an idea on how much the penalty will be if we have no ins by tax time?

You can't get insurance through work? How were you dropped because of the ACA?

Dh had ins for all of us through his job. We got a letter saying they are dropping ins b/c of the ACA.

It's happening to a lot of people. I think the fine is 1% of your income.

Then his insurance didn't meet the federal requirements. Have you looked into the ACA? I know people are saying not to use it but you can look into it.

Yet unions are stupid and pointless, according to many.

I've heard that too. Thank God for my husband's union and the insurance we get.

I agree, it took me 4 years to get on with my union job and I will be there forever.

It's $95/adult and half that per child, or 1%, whichever is more.  It goes up after 2014 though.
