I am not quite sure how to post this. This information comes from the Drudge Report via the Republicans. And, we know how the Republicans in Congress tend to only fend for what is most expedient. But, when they reveal hidden truths behind the AWESOME Marxist totalitarian regime of the current administration, one has to take notice.
And what makes this all the worse, is that our elected ruling elite are doing all they can to harm American citizens and its taxpayers through the guise of "helping" the little person.
So, what happens to you American citizens once this travesty of unconstitutional illegal mess becomes law?
Well, for starters, you will be FORCED to buy in to one of their government-mandated health insurance programs. And, I know some of you will say, "No, he has promised to allow us to keep our current plans". Yeah, sorry. But if your plan does not meet the minumum qualifications that THE GOVERNMENT sets up, then your plan will change. If any change happens to your plan, even a change in deductible, then your plan MUST match what the government mandates.
But, let's say that you are 25 years old and have rarely ever been sick. You don't feel that you need to spend your money on useless health care insurance. Well, under Pelosi's plan, you will be forced, mandated, BY LAW and threats of punishment, to puchase a government-mandated plan. Or face severe penalties.
..the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) confirming that the failure to comply with the individual mandate to buy health insurance contained in the Pelosi health care bill (H.R. 3962, as amended) could land people in jail. The JCT letter makes clear that Americans who do not maintain “acceptable health insurance coverage” and who choose not to pay the bill’s new individual mandate tax (generally 2.5% of income), are subject to numerous civil and criminal penalties, including criminal fines of up to $250,000 and imprisonment of up to five years.
“If the government determines that the taxpayer’s unpaid tax liability results from willful behavior, the following penalties could apply…” [page 2]
Prosecution is authorized under the Code for a variety of offenses. Depending on the level of the noncompliance, the following penalties could apply to an individual:
• Section 7203 – misdemeanor willful failure to pay is punishable by a fine of up to $25,000 and/or imprisonment of up to one year.
• Section 7201 – felony willful evasion is punishable by a fine of up to $250,000 and/or imprisonment of up to five years.” [page 3]
And, how much will the cheapest government-run government-mandated legally-binding health plan cost you?
According to the Congressional Budget Office the lowest cost family non-group plan under the Speaker’s bill would cost $15,000 in 2016.
That's an additional $1,250 per month in expenses. But the kicker is, that in addition to being forced to pay in to an unwanted health care plan, you ALSO have to pay a 2.5% tax liability. That makes you health plan now $17,500!! (for incomes of $100,000)
And, this is not factoring in the additional TAXES that taxpayers will be forced to pay due to the 40 million in new non-taxpaying members to the government rolls. Some estimate that tax liability to be as much as $4,000 per year.
And you can read above what happens to you should you NOT pay the penalties.
The government and the IRS will put you in jail for up to 5 years for not having health insurance.
But rest assured. That will only happen to American citizen taxpayers.
If you don't have to pay taxes, or are not a citizen of these awesome United States, then you have nothing to fear.
But, thankfully, only taxpaying American citizens will be forced in to these penalties. And jail. Before, citizenship had its priviledges. Now, it could land you in jail.
Isn't that just AWESOME!! The Obamassiah told you he would institute change. Better gets used to the change in scenery.....in jail.
