This article (like almost all articles on the penalty) is incomplete. The penalty also has a MAX limit on it equal to the cost of the nationwide AVERAGE bronze plan. If you go to TAX preparation sites they’ll list this intentionally forgotten fact. I also verified it with an enrolled agent that checked the tax code.
Example: for me living in the Great Socialist State of Kalifornia, the bronze plan cost about $7500/person this year. However, the nationwide average last year for a bronze plan was slightly below $2500 (expect some increase for this year). So, the max limit on me is about $5000 LESS than buying this crappy insurance, and depending on your income it could be a lot cheaper to pay the penalty.
And what if you're hospitalized, and incur a large bill? Cheaper than $7500 then?

Yeah, I’m a bit skeptical about this chart as well. Atlas Shrugged should be on the far right (NOT extreme right though!) because Progressive Liberals bleed through every orifice when they hear about it.

So much for “Speak Truth to Power.” I guess that’s another privilege reserved for blacks and hispanics, whites need not concern themselves with it.

What??? Bill Clinton just moved to Palmdale?

Just call it a form of abortion and the Progressive Left and the Femi-Nazis will be all for it. They might even start demanding that BarryCare pay for it.

“We still have to build the payment systems to make payments to issuers in January,” the Obamacare official said before adding,
As anyone that’s actually taken care of themselves (I know, that leaves out the typical low information Obama voters and welfare queens), insurance is NOT IN FORCE until payment is made. So, if they can’t get the payment section of the system running before Jan 01, (and just who thinks THAT will happen?) those policies are NOT IN EFFECT.
Just wait until those forced of their own policies and into Barry-Care try to visit a doctor in Jan 2014 and find out that they do NOT have coverage! Then the Marxist in Chief will be demanding and that the insurance companies pay anyway even though NO CONTRACT exists without payment!
Yep, Obama will "allow" people to have insurance without making any payments. Another of his delays . . .
It's worse than you think. The payment system actually has to be running by December 15 - plans selected and/or paid for after that won't go into effect until February 1.

“For young people who are in the individual market whose incomes are above 400 percent of poverty level, they were the ones who heard the promise, ‘If you like what you got, you can keep it,’” Clinton said in an interview this week with digital news site Ozymandias.
Hey, Blue-Dress Bill! We ALL heard the lies Barry made about keeping our policies, not just the young victims of Barry-Care. Is this another discriminatory attempt to cater to one part of the population at the expense of another? Why doesn’t the Marxist have to keep his promise to OLDER people and not just the younger ones?
For all that matters, I believe that these young kiddies should be FORCED to buy BarryCare and pay all that extra money. After all, those in their 20s and 30s were oh so proud to have voted overwhelmingly for the Marxist. Let them benefit from the policies of their idol.
Just wait 15 or 20 years until that generation is in their mid 40s to early 50s when they’re at their maximum earning power. They’ll wake up and wonder why they’re taxed so much that they never get ahead. I wonder how many of them will have the personal honesty and integrity to admit it’s because of their views and votes when they were young and happy to elect someone that promised to steal from the successful to give to the losers. That’s when it will really get real for them, but it will be too late.

We already knew that the police have NO duty to protect us from anything. The Supreme Court has made that ruling many times. Now we learn that the ‘police’ can actually participate in attacking us. Certainly this particular officer felt justified in attacking a citizen.
And then they tell us to disarm because they’ll protect us.
Wasn't there six cops?
and did any one else see the second video of the gang beating on a second car in an intersection?
If you just now learned that "the 'police' can actually participate in attacking us," then why was this NYPD officer arrested? Did this "particular officer (feel) justified in attacking a citizen" or was he acting a fool and breaking the law? We'll have to find out after all the facts in the case come out.
Your statement of "they tell us to disarm because they’ll protect us" means what? Police officers want citizen's to disarm? Where'd you get that? How about citing of factual references.

I would have told my kid that “pimp” is another name for “teacher” and sent them to school to educate the teacher aka pimp.

Ban guns? Because of this shooting? Really?
Based upon the reported violent crimes this year, I think we should ban black people. They seem to be the most common factor in violent and deadly assaults this year. Ban black people and most of the gun killing will end. Ban black people and most of the REAL hate crimes will vanish.
Naa, its racist to tell the truth.

Yes, perhaps epinephrine MIGHT have saved his life. But do we really want a bunch of PE coaches running around with epipens dosing everyone with any malady because of it? I’m not a doctor but I don’t have any problem believing that there are some kids out there that would have a reaction to epinephrine.
What I see is another crazed “fear of liability” running wild where there is a “crash cart” on the practice field it either waits for the EMT or untrained personnel are shooting kids up with whatever the current popular “remedy” is.

I recall a news story in the last several weeks where the IRS (yes, our “friends” there) ruled that atheist organizations are considered religious for tax purposes. So, if that’s the case, then NOT putting “In God We Trust” would be pandering to a different religion, namely atheism. They want the tax deduction, they get the same treatment.
Now what do you do?

Contrast the difference:
Good solid Americans doing something that brings people together
Progressive Liberals that only ever stress division and class warfare.

I sure would like to know who this “anonymous part-time employee” voted for. Without that I can’t tell whether to feel empathy or disgust for her.

In a way, the Carnie-man is right as President Marxist has destroyed any prestige the US had.
Yep. This whole thing smells. It's contrived, parallel construction as uncle is want to say.
Janet: when ya die a skunks stripe black. Its still a skunk. Not a lion

Here’s what the Medusa was really saying:
“When we can’t stuff the ballot box, disenfranchise LEGAL voters with tons of illegals, and when the public realizes that we lie to get elected and then ignore their views, then we LOSE!”
So, in a way, she is right, the Demoncrats have SUPPRESSED the voter’s views in these districts and that is why those pinko-lefties were recalled. She just got roles of suppressor and suppressed reversed.

Gee, I thought the “War on Women” had already been won by Sandra Phluck. Didn’t they push for free birth control as a solution to all that’s evil in the world?
Maybe they got the wrong war and shot all they ammo.
September 2, 2013 at 8:38pm
Good thing they don’t have a “War on Women” like we do in the US! Imagine how much worse it would be if these women were denied free birth control. That would be much worse!

Assad should just stand up, wave his arms around and shout: “What possible difference does it make now?!!” That’s what Killary did and she got away with it. Or, just say, “I don’t know, but I want a thorough investigation so it doesn’t happen again” and bury the investigation. That’s what President Marxist has done in a dozen different scandals.
After all, it he’s immune because nobody can PROVE he ordered something (IRS scandal, Fast and Furious) or because he didn’t order something (Benghazi) the what right does the Marxist have to hold Assad responsible if he can’t prove Assad issued the order?
