    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.

    I was really hoping to get Obama out but with all this mess he's brought on, he can stay here and face it. He can deal with the jobs, economy, health care, the middle east he deserves all of it. This health care will be the biggest mistake of his life and ours. I bet when he goes into the voting booth he votes for Romney he wants whats best for the future of his daughters and he knows its not him.

    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.
