Health Care Tax Penalty To Hit Nearly 6 Million Uninsured People
AP | By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR Posted: 09/19/2012 3:44 pm Updated: 09/20/2012 12:31 pm


WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly 6 million Americans — significantly more than first estimated— will face a tax penalty under President Barack Obama's health overhaul for not getting insurance, congressional analysts said Wednesday. Most would be in the middle class.

The new estimate amounts to an inconvenient fact for the administration, a reminder of what critics see as broken promises.

The numbers from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office are 50 percent higher than a previous projection by the same office in 2010, shortly after the law passed. The earlier estimate found 4 million people would be affected in 2016, when the penalty is fully in effect.

That's still only a sliver of the population, given that more than 150 million people currently are covered by employer plans. Nonetheless, in his first campaign for the White House, Obama pledged not to raise taxes on individuals making less than $200,000 a year and couples making less than $250,000.

And the budget office analysis found that nearly 80 percent of those who'll face the penalty would be making up to or less than five times the federal poverty level. Currently that would work out to $55,850 or less for an individual and $115,250 or less for a family of four.Average penalty: about $1,200 in 2016.

Let me see. I currently pay $7800 per year for a $3500 deductible. Under Obamacare, I can reduce that cost to $2400 saving $5400 per year by just paying the penalty er tax er taxalty er penalx whatever. Then, when and if one of us is diagnosed with something, we can buy full coverage for that condition covered by some for profit, greedy, money grubbing insurance company. What a deal! I wonder how many insurance companies I will have to choose from?

I can't wait until the Medicaid folks start realizing that they are losing benefits. When you add more people with the same, or less, money there will be cuts. No more dental? No more healthy checks? X-rays? Office visit? The cuts will vary from state to state but there will be cuts. Many that support obamacare the hardest will be the ones that lose the most.

You'll never convince the AARP members. They are so brainwashed, they are worse than a roomful of blacks listening to Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton giving a seminar.

If you can get it, listen to what Paul Ryan had to endure at a speech in Florida to a batch of AARP Geezers.

Are you aware that the affordable healthcare is not in effect yet? You might want to cast blame at the current system.

Parts are in effect now. More than that with the insurance companies knowing that costs are going to go up more than they already have once the rest goes into effect they are raising prices to account for the rise in costs. At our annual meeting the year this went into effect we were told that our insurance would've went down had Obama care not been put in place. Instead it went up quite a bit. To think that adding 50million to the insurance rolls would be free is ridiculous.

Obviously they are using it as a reason to charge you more. Obama is who everyone wants to blame so they just told you that because they knew you would believe them because you want to.

Obama is the one RESPONSIBLE

Obama didn't raise your insurance premiums, your insurance company did. It's an easy thing to get people to believe and make people think that Obama raised their insurance premiums because so many people hate Obama. they used the affordable care act so they wouldn't be the bad guy when they jabbed you on your premiums.:cool:

Do you think that once romney and ryan get into office, and repeal obamacare, your insurance company will drop your premiums down below what they are now? They told you that your premiums were going to go down, but obamacare made it go up. When obamacare gets repealed, let us know if your premiums go back down. FAT CHANCE!!!

As a matter of fact, mine did go down this year. And guess what, it had nothing to do with obamacare. My employer found a lower rate with the same coverage on most of the plan and better coverage on the rest of it. They shopped around until they found what they were looking for and an insurer willing to give them the coverage and rates that we have now.

Can anyone particularly you liberals explain why so many companies, unions, etc have been allowed to opt out of obamacare? Better yet if it's so great why would they want too?

Well mine has went up every year for the last 20 years, now I get this shocking news that it will probably go up, wow shocking, who knew that Obama was to blame all the way back to Reagon. :D

Well, mine didn't go up until obamacare was passed. Got a nice 33% hike so had to drop it and went with an independent carrier. Wife is on medicare and has been taking one prescription for 10 yrs and all of the sudden they won't cover it. They suggested another drug as a replacement but it doesn't work. Her doctor has started the paperwork to get an exemption but this could take up to a year. So, now I'm stuck paying for the extra med. You can say what you want his first 2 yrs in office with control of congress and all that was passed was Healthcare reform, aka health insurance reform. If the bill is SO GOOD why are there so many exemptions especially in democratic districts? The health care system needs reform but this isn't it.
