IRS Health Insurance Penalty
Will Not Motivate Consumers
To Buy Insurance

The Herald (Rocky Hill, SC), by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 4/18/2013 1:00:48 PM

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- A new HealthPocket consumer survey found that most people don´t feel a penalty for remaining uninsured will motivate them to buy insurance starting in October. When survey takers were asked, "Will the $95 IRS penalty motivate you to shop this October for an Obamacare health plan?" nearly two-thirds of consumers surveyed answered "No." Only 8 percent of respondents answered "Yes" and nearly 30 percent were unsure. Beginning in 2014, consumers will be required to buy health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. An IRS tax penalty will be levied on consumers who fail to purchase health insurance

America is tougher than you and your leftist ideologue comrades are Mr, 0bama. Take your penalty (tax actually) and stick it.

The total lunacy of government part 8,368,254,142. The total idiots in government couldn´t figure out this simple equation -- The choice for a young person -- 1. spending hundreds of dollars a month for a product they don´t really need and they can´t really afford, vs. 2. Having to pay a monthly penalty amounting to $7.92.

I´m with #2 on this subject. We need about 50 million people in a noble act of civil disobedience to refuse to pay the penalty, rendering the supreme court decision moot by nullification. In fact, I am seriously thinking about dropping my coverage so I can be one of them.

I´m with #´s 1-4 above. This may be a superb chance for a national act of civil disobedience...refusal to pay arbitrary and unfair taxes. Sounds a little bit like those ´Indians´ throwing British tea overboard in Boston harbor, doesn´t it.

And #1, you´re exactly right; maybe Chief Justice John "Nobody Scares ME!" Roberts can explain what the heck an "IRS tax penalty" is. Sounds like a "Push Me - Pull You" to me. [Do it be a tax or a penalty, your honor?]

Wait until that $695 per person penalty kicks in. I predict there will be many not even bothering to file their 1040s rather than have to pay the penalty.

It´s entirely possible they are counting on refusal to pay the penalty, (which they also failed to provide a means to collect in the event of refusal!)just so they can insert much harsher penalties and new tighter means of control later as a result. I do not have insurance. Always did before but my husband is retired on medicare, I am self imployed making less than $200 a week. There is NO WAY I can afford an individual policy. I want insurance - simply can´t afford it. By the grace of God - I am relatively healthy - for now. My husband is not. We spend almost all our available funds on his health care.

Most government scandals involve the manipulation of the system in obscure ways by people no one has ever heard of. That is why George Washington Bridgegate is nearly a perfect scandal — because it is comprehensible and (as they say in Hollywood) “relatable” to everyone who has ever been in a car. This is the reason this one is not going to go away so easily, even if one accepts the contention that Gov. Chris Christie had nothing whatsoever to do with it.(snip)Journalists know the Obamans.

Here´s a startling statistic: more than 8,000 Iraqis were killed in violent attacks in 2013. That makes it the second most violent country in the world, after its neighbor Syria. As violence has spread and militants have gained ground in several Middle Eastern countries, people have been wondering how much this has to do with the Obama administration and its lack of an active intervention in the region. The Wall Street Journal and a Commentary magazine opinion piece have both argued this past week that the Obama administration´s decision to withdraw troops from Iraq is directly responsible for the renewed

WASHINGTON — Vice President Joe Biden spoke on Wednesday for a second time this week to Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, voicing support for the Baghdad government´s effort to regain control of the city of Fallujah from al-Qaida-linked fighters. The White House said Biden encouraged al-Maliki to continue talks with local, tribal and national leaders and said Biden welcomed al-Maliki´s affirmation Wednesday that Iraqi elections will occur as scheduled in April. The White House said al-Maliki described a series of political initiatives in the embattled Anbar province.

Forces allied with al-Qaida are battling to retake two major cities in Iraq´s Sunni-dominated Anbar province: Ramadi, the capital of the province, and Fallujah, the city where U.S. troops prevailed after fighting two major battles. There have been no American forces in Iraq since 2011, when President Obama ordered the last troops to leave. Now the man who lost the presidential race to Obama five years ago is pointing a finger at the president for al-Qaida´s resurgence. Some 1,300 U.S. troops died in the area during the Iraq War, and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) says the troops that fought there

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates´ criticism of his former boss President Barack Obama on Afghanistan doesn´t align with the commander-in-chief´s views, the White House said Wednesday. In his memoir, which arrived at the White House on Tuesday evening, Gates states Obama "doesn´t believe in his own strategy" in Afghanistan.

The Supreme Court has scheduled the argument on the so-called contraceptive mandate in the Obamacare law for Tuesday, March 25. That´s when the court will hear the challenges brought by two businesses whose owners say providing contraceptive care would violate their religious beliefs. Last week, the Obama administration urged the Supreme Court to reject another complaint from a group of Colorado nuns. The government argues that the nuns are already exempt from the law as a church organization. The nuns do not want to sign a waiver asking for an exemption, saying it would make them complicit.

He was, he said, heartbroken. Embarrassed. Sad. Disappointed. Humiliated.By the end of an extraordinary and exhaustive 107-minute news conference, Chris Christie had transformed himself from a belligerent chief executive, famed for ridiculing his detractors, into a deeply wronged father figure, shaking his head, whispering his words and verging on tears. The bravado had vanished. The certitude was gone. In its place was an entirely new vocabulary of self-doubt and a once unthinkable spectacle: Governor Christie acknowledging a “crisis in confidence,” sleepless nights, second-guessing and nonstop soul-searching. Political apologies generally follow a robotic sequence. The public figure caught doing wrong offers a terse, often

The pizza arrived, steaming and delectable, a smoked-mozzarella-and-sausage pie presented to Mayor Bill de Blasio like a gilded offering to a visiting caliph. The mayor, on a pilgrimage on Friday to Goodfellas, a venerable Staten Island pizzeria, smiled, nodded at his slice and then proceeded to do the unthinkable: eat it with a knife and fork. Cue the foodie firestorm. “Disaster,” declared a writer at New York magazine, citing the longstanding city protocol of devouring pizza, no matter how greasy, with the hands, and the hands only.

Every night’s going to be Halloween night for Hillary. The skeletons in her closet are signing up now for the conga line.

The Big Three networks, in a frenzy over New Jersey Gov.

By comparison, that´s 17 times the two minutes, eight seconds devoted to President Obama´s IRS scandal in the last six months, according to an analysis by the Media Research Center. “While routinely burying new stories on the IRS scandal, the media practically fell over themselves to start taking shots at the potential 2016 Republican presidential nominee,” said the conservative media watchdog.
