Shocking Truths About Obamacare
if you are not an american citizen, you dont have to pay penalty for not being insured? how do i give up my citizenship?
Yep. I’m moving
Where I live, Doctors are dropping whatever insurances people have through Obamacare.
A lot of Doctors don’t want patient who have coverage through Obamacare.
I have a year and a half of being covered through my Dad and then I’m screwed.
oH OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH FUCKING SHIT
GOD FUCKING DAMMIT
PEOPLE ARE JUST REALIZING THIS NOW??/?/??????
SOME KIDS AT MY SCHOOL WERE LIKE ‘but lik obamacare is free healthcare lmao u idiot’
NO ITS NOT
OBAMA CARE IS NOT FREE ITS NOT EVEN RELATIVELY CHEAP FUCKING SHIT NO ONE KNOWS AT MY AGE WHATS GOING ON IN THE POLITICAL FIELD I WANT TO SHOVE A BULLDOZER UP EVERYONE’S ASSHOLES FUCK
I’m so glad people are finally realizing Obamacare isn’t what they say it is!~ My family has been hit hard with this new policy…~ We don’t want this expensive Healthcare, and we know if we don’t eventually give into it, they’ll start fining us, which we definitely can’t afford~x.x Oh dear, it’s a lose lose situation for me..~
If you can’t afford the health care options, you probably qualify from an exemption.
Under certain circumstances, you won’t have to make the individual responsibility payment. This is called an “exemption.”
*As a note, the link in that source I posted has a detailed list of exemptions and explanations on how to apply for one.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone claim that it’s free. Is it perfect? Of course not. Never will be. But that is why there are exemptions for low income families. And the exemptions seem pretty broad to me.
I’d also love an explanation from someone as to how doctors who don’t want patients who have coverage through “Obamacare” are going to get patients, since it’s… fairly mandatory. There aren’t many people who can afford to pay a doctor out of pocket.
THIS IS WHY OBAMA IS NOT A COMMUNIST OR SOCIALIST OF ANY FORM
THIS SUPPORTS THE INDUSTROCAPITALIST COMPLEX AND CRIMINALIZES POVERTY
BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO PAY A FINE IF YOU DON’T BUY INTO IT
I don’t pretend to be an expert on this, but I’m fairly certain that people who are in poverty are exempt (although I’m certain there are loopholes). I don’t know what it takes into account for expenses (like student loans?), but as far as I can tell what you’re required to pay is based on your income.
Also, according to the linked article, they can’t criminally enforce the fines. They can hold it from a tax return, but that’s it. No idea if true.
Other things from the article:
often if you are willing to buy a new policy through the new state Marketplaces, you can get a plan at a substantially reduced rate or even free depending on your current income. Anyone making less than 400% the poverty level, which is $45,960 for individuals and $94,200 for a family of four can get help paying for health insurance so if this applies to you, check it out!
The lowest cost plan available to you is more than 8% of your income
Adult children may actually get a good deal out of Obamacare as they are now able to be added to their parents plans until the age of 26. This is even true if they are not living with their parents, not financially dependent on them or married!
Again, I don’t doubt that it has its negatives and that some people who can’t afford it will be stuck paying the monthly fee, but overall these numbers sound pretty reasonable.
I like how awesome Canadians have a better understanding of American Medicare services than the rest of these chumps. Way to go.
