I just figured out how this deal works Thursday.
If I am unemployed and have no income, and can't afford health insurance, when I file I will still owe a tax. Not too bad the first year, only $90, but after ten years about $800.
Is that right? Surely, there will bo some kind of subsidy for me, right?
I don't even ever plan on going to a hospital unless I am involved in some kind of bad accident and they force me to.
It just seems like I am pretty poor and already struggling and they are hitting me a little hard.
Maybe someday they will come up with an affordable health plan for poor people.
but off topic, If I was Obama's campaign advisor, the day he got elected I would say, "Look, who is most likely to run against you in 2012? Mitt Romney. Do you want to sit here trying to make friends with GS, while he comes on the scene talking all about how he delivered health care for Mass?"
if you live 'american dream'-ie own the house it will be far more than 90$..regardless..if you have any income or not..school taxes(administrators and 'communicators' have to get their 100+K salaries,they don't give a fuck about your income),property taxes..hey..i'm still paying occupational taxes(like $5-10),even i was unemployed(and file as such) for over a decade..in my case it would be around 5+K a year..nowhere near 90$
and many more are coming soon via obamacare...
