If there’s still anyone left who thinks Obamacare, otherwise known as the “Affordable Care Act”, is “affordable” or has one damn thing to do with “care”, please read this Facebook post which was originally posted on the “Healthcare.gov“ Facebook timeline at some point over the past couple of days. (I can not locate the original post or I would link to it. The administrators at the Healthcare.gov Facebook page may have removed the post or the poster may have even removed their own post. Others may have the link to this original post. I do not. I did find this link from the “Open Your Eyes People” Facebook page, however. That post, from that page, has been shared 2,453 times as of right now. 2:30AM CST 10-3-13 – that post was made on Facebook on 12:55AM on 10-2-13.)
Here’s the quote directly from the Facebook post by “Will Sheehan” as it appears in the picture below:
I actually made it through this morning at 8:00 A.M. I have a preexisting condition (Type 1 Diabetes) and my income base was 45K-55K annually I chose tier 2 “Silver Plan” and my monthly premiums came out to $597.00 with $13,988 yearly deductible!!! There is NO POSSIBLE way that I can afford this so I “opt-out” and chose to continue along with no insurance. I received an email tonight at 5:00P.M. informing me that my fine would be $4,037 and could be attached to my yearly income tax return. Then you make it to the “REPERCUSSIONS PORTION” for “non-payment” of yearly fine. First, your drivers license will be suspended until paid, and if you go 24 consecutive months with “Non-Payment” and you happen to be a home owner, you will have a federal tax lien placed on your home. You can agree to give your bank information so that they can easy “Automatically withdraw” your “penalties” weekly, bi-weekly or monthly! This by no means is “Free” or even “Affordable.”
There have been several who have said, “Let Obamacare move on. Let it be implemented. It will smother itself.” They may have been onto something. Time will tell. For those of you who are choosing to comply, that is the only hope you have left…that Obamacare murders itself. (And, the rest of us who are choosing to not comply, well, we’re left to deal with the ramifications of your compliance…and inaction/ignorance at the voting booth – thanks for that…once again.)
If you’re one of those who is being scared or are feeling bullied by the federal government into complying with Obamacare, I hope you do realize that if enough of you choose to NOT COMPLY, the system would be overwhelmed and Obamacare most certainly would eat itself alive. Obamacare REQUIRES your compliance in order for it to survive. It will only survive if YOU feed it. Don’t feed the wild animals. Allow nature to take its natural course. (Formerly known as “the free market”…)
