Low income Obama(care) Voter? Some get a Surprise!!

In a new report released June 5 2014, the Congressional Budget Office had an unwelcome surprise waiting for low income individuals:  About 1,000,000 of them will now be paying a penalty under Obamacare.  It’s estimated around 4,000,000 people will be fined overall.

From Free Beacon

A chart accompanying the report revealed that 200,000 of those paying the penalty earn less than 100 percent of the poverty line. An additional 800,000 are considered low-income, earning between 100 and 199 percent of the poverty level.

This year Americans opting to not purchase health insurance will pay a $95 fine or 1 percent of their household’s adjusted gross income—whichever amount is greater. By 2016, the minimum fine will be $695 or 2.5 percent of the household income.

In addition, the report estimated that under Obamacare 30 million Americans will still be uninsured by 2016.

“All told, CBO and [the Joint Committee on Taxation] JCT estimate that about four million people will pay a penalty because they are uninsured in 2016 (a figure that includes uninsured dependents who have the penalty paid on their behalf),” the report said. “An estimated $4 billion will be collected from those who are uninsured in 2016, and, on average, an estimated $5 billion will be collected per year over the 2017–2024 period.”

But this mandate goes against what candidate Obama suggested in a October of 2008 debate with Hillary, while debating her ‘mandate’:

Hm.  We get more info every month that he lied all the way thru the passing of this bill.

  1. HEY 51% !! YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE GONNA GET IT FREE ! DIDNT YOU ?

  2. Fine me, tax me what ever you want to call it until you ruin me and you take my house. I will not be forced to buy a product I get at work free when my hours are up, but when my hrs are down I don’t have insurance. I have been living this way for over 30 yrs just fine with out being forced to buy something. I am not going to be forced to buy Obama care at 340 a month premium when I get my insurance its free with a 1000 deductible, Obama care has a 6600 deductible, and with Obama care I cant use my Dr. so now I would have to bounce back and forth between when I do or don’t have my company insurance or not, to be able to keep my Dr. of 25 yrs. This so called affordable care act Obama mandatory insurance doesn’t work for everyone. That’s why the system you just ruined was put in place to begin with, its called FREE ENTREPRISE, FREEDOMS TO CHOOSE WHAT YOU WANT TO BUY OR PURCHASE.
