Obamacare: $20,000 per year, minimum

So says the IRS.

In a final regulation issued Wednesday, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) assumed that under Obamacare the cheapest health insurance plan available in 2016 for a family will cost $20,000 for the year.

Under Obamacare, Americans will be required to buy health insurance or pay a penalty to the IRS.

The IRS’s assumption that the cheapest plan for family will cost $20,000 per year is found in examples the IRS gives to help people understand how to calculate the penalty they will need to pay the government if they do not buy a mandated health plan.

Now that you have read that, listen to this.

    Using the conditions laid out in the regulations, the IRS calculates that a family earning $120,000 per year that did not buy insurance would need to pay a “penalty” (a word the IRS still uses despite the Supreme Court ruling that it is in fact a “tax”) of $2,400 in 2016.

    Still chaps my ass.

      Again, knowing that you can’t be denied insurance if you need it, are you going to pay $20,000 or $2,400 per year?

      This thing is going to collapse big and bad. They only thing I can’t figure out is if it will collapse because they are idiots or because they are geniuses.

          Hey, are they basing their calculations on income? Does anyone know if health insurance is graduated (progressive) under ObamaCare at any point? (meaning you have to pay more, based on your income level)

          Starve it? No, kill it. Its time for people to swarm their state legislatures and DEMAND they refuse to comply.
          Demand nullification or states rights are a DEAD concept.

          We can still beat this but ONLY if every atate refuses to pay. We can beat it if we keep it alive in the public domain as a states rights issue.

          I don’t care HOW these f’ers frame it, until we get them to argue with us and LOSE an argument in the Human Rights arena, I won’t submit. Healthcare is NOT a human right, its obvious. Bring me your ‘governmental’ proof and I’ll bring you a revolution. Please.

    He could have pegged the number at 25,000 and the dumbass Obama voter would have still believed him.

    Not gonna happen. I refuse. I will not submit.
    They understand that if I REFUSE to pay for regular plans I will pay a fraction. They understand that theres no WAY the majority of americans will fight. They think we’re all too blasted stupid to do the math. Furthermore,they assume we’re too friggin greedy and will take their ‘penalties’ before we fold. Maybe we will, maybe they CAN crush sstatewide insurance plans.
    Then we have to do the only thing reasonable. Either we fight for State ONLY insurance deals and treat every other US state like a foreign country or we quit. Either we treat EVERY citizen as a citizen FIRST of their State, then the Fedsor we tear it all down. I’m leaning towards the latter. Deny, Defund, Decouple. Begin the beguine. Lets get it ON.

    The Feds have gone rogue. They know full well you can’t pay that amount and all of us in HSA’s are looking at 1000-1200/mo increases because we had the temerity to apply the free market system and CHOICE to our health care planning.

    Its over. America is dead.

    Refuse to pay the tithes to the feds
    Refuse to accept their money for your ‘schools’
    Refuse to accept their money for your roads

    Deny their presumed ‘rights’ over your life and liberty
    Defund their tyrannical system by demanding your state refuse to comply with the mandates
    De-Couple from the Feds, utilize Nullification at every instance of extra-constitutional tyranny

    Our ONLY CHANCE is to assert States Rights, per the 10th amendment.
    DEMAND it of your state legislature!

    • Locke n Load says:

      You think I’m kidding? I’m not. I’m not even slightly exaggerating. Its time we demanded of EVERY state legislature they DENY this mandate. This law is the most heinous liberty killing document ever penned in the world. Forget the cash outlays, forget the impact on every business startup in america….think of it in terms of your soul. You are now OWNED by the FEDS. A 12 member panel, unelected, now controls who gets life, who gets treatment. every decision you make now has a National impact. Wanna smoke? That can’t be allowed as it negatively impacts the payouts of Obamacare. Like sugar? Forget it, same reason, can’t have diabetes ya know.

      Everything. Repeat, EVERYTHING you do now has more than a commmensurate cost, it has a Societal cost. You no longer own your own actions or repercussions. You are now a liability. You have been absorbed by a system that in he name of equality, absorbed your LIBERTY.

      I quit.

      Bring on the revolution. Sign me up.
