Yikes – Guy Charged $95 After Using HHS Obamacare Website…. Perhaps The First Person Penalized Under New HHS Mandate

Ouch.   Just another of those unintended consequences from passing a bill before reading, and enacting before it’s ready.

Doctor Obama

HatTip dmoseylou - Here’s the summary:   A guy is actually able to navigate the HHS Obamacare website.   He completes his registration, enters in all the information, reviews his options to select coverage, sees the price and then declines to accept.

Essentially he almost enrolls but then chooses to do further research and find if additional private coverage not on the exchange might be available for him.

Should be no big deal right?

WRONG.

A few days pass and what does he get in the mail?   A bill from the IRS for $95 for not selecting a coverage plan.   Yes, that’s right – he got the first year penalty immediately assessed just for NOT enrolling.

D’oh,….. Apparently the system is set up to recognize such consumers as “uninsured” and assumes you will not get alternate coverage.  Ergo you are uninsured and now subject to the penalty…. so, pay you must !

Why would he contact a liberal news station that would bury the story?

Why do some people contact CNN and others MSNBC?

You are saying he doesn't have the right to contact the news organization of his choice?

I don't recall you condemning other citizens going to the news network of their choice.

Why are you so biased against conservatives? You do recall the 14th Amendment, which mandates equal protection under the law?

This is made up news. It is not ignored by other news agencies because they are all liberal. It is ignored because it is false. Ask yourself if this seems like it could be correct. If Obamacare penalties are to start next years at tax time would a bill make sense? A warning letter might make sense but not a bill. This story was created by an Obamacare hater.
