By 2014, all Americans will have to purchase health insurance. Individuals that currently have health insurance will be affected the least by the new health care laws. Low and moderate income individuals will receive assistance from the government in order to purchase insurance. Individuals that fail to purchase insurance will be subject to fines and penalties. The penalty would be roughly $95 in 2014 and rise to $695 in 2016. There will be a maximum cap on fines



this is Intimidation agenst our free will and i will never be forced to buy and keep

paying health care insurance agenst my will. and i will not pay the fines

by making it a law the gov is forceing its will on the people agenst the peoples will

and freedom



is it true that doctors can refuse treetnent for the ill that are not coverd by

healllth care. if it is true then the law that prevents doctors from refuseing

the care of a paitents then that got to mean that law was removed from

our protection. now you have to buy that protection or you dont get it

and be subject to fines and charges.... whats more is it dont cover eighty percent

of the medical and treetment bills. . .this is a form of dictatership

I’ll second that motion.



The idea was doomed from the start. There were hundreds of different methods that could have been used to achieve the results they told us they wanted to achieve. But it turned out to be a pack of lies. They never wanted to “fix” healthcare at all, they just wanted more power and more money.

after doing nore reading on this i saw that those that dont make enought

a year to be requried to do tax every april will not get fined

but what can they do if you dont get health care insurance and refuse to pay fines

do they take everything you own do they put you in jail..

if this is true health care is a dcttarership law and its illeagle..

in school as a kid i never forgot this what i learned

one can not force another to give them money to buy somthing they dont want

do ypu remember that one?..

Before the Republicans repeal Obamacare they should first repeal EMTALA:



The Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) is a U.S. Act of Congress passed in 1986.



It requires hospitals to provide care to anyone needing emergency healthcare treatment regardless of citizenship, legal status or ability to pay. There are no reimbursement provisions.



Amazing that nobody ever discusses the unconstitutional mandate Congress imposes on hospitals.



Of course that's "free" so we don't mind about that

The scene: A person in a head-on collision is rushed to the emergency room. Transfusions must begin immediately.



"Sir, sir, I need to ask you one question before we try to save your life. Can you pay for this?"



In gary's perfect world if the answer is no, the loser is shown the door, thus helping to keep his insurance premiums "more affordable."

My perfect world includes some form of single-payer Universal Health Care so that nobody is turned away, nobody is driven into bankruptcy and everyone shares the cost of healthcare openly - not surreptitiously.



Instead of attacking me again, stick to the point:



Why does nobody complain about the unconstitutional mandate imposed on hospitals by Congress since 1986?

It’s become a crazy complex problem, but only because of the way all the rules evolved.



The original idea was for hospitals to take both paying customers and charity customers. The thinking was the percentage of charity customers would be small, which it was at one time. Also remember, many of these hospitals were run by religious organizations such as the Catholic church. Funds to build the hospitals and make up for any yearly shortfalls came from many sources. Some were local, some State and some from churches.



Over time, various government entities began imposing their rules on medical providers which made running hospitals increasingly more difficult. Today, of course, it has become such a muddled ball of confusion that it is nearly impossible to untangle.

You seemed concerned that nobody discusses the unconstitutional mandate Congress imposes on hospitals.



We're talking about it.



Btw, please quote from the Constitution, Article this and Section that, and explain how the mandate is unconstitutional.

I used to think I had a pretty good handle on what was Constitutional and what was not.



But things change.

The part that prohibits Congress from interfering in Commerce and manipulating the market.



Or should EMTALA simply be viewed as a tax on hospitals?



If so why not allow everybody to get free treatment and let the hospitals figure it out?

In gary's perfect world if the answer is no, the loser is shown the door, thus helping to keep his insurance premiums "more affordable."





My perfect world includes some form of single-payer Universal Health Care so that nobody is turned away, nobody is driven into bankruptcy and everyone shares the cost of healthcare openly - not surreptitiously.



Instead of attacking me again, stick to the point:



Why does nobody complain about the unconstitutional mandate imposed on hospitals by Congress since 1986?

[/quote]



The scene: A person in a head-on collision is rushed to the emergency room. Transfusions must begin immediately.



"Sir, sir, I need to ask you one question before we try to save your life. Can you pay for this?"



In gary's world before it becomes perfect with a single-payer UHC system in which no one is turned away, if the answer is no, the loser is shown the door, thus helping to keep his insurance premiums "more affordable."

[/quote]





What on earth are you talking about?



In a Universal Health Care system no questions are asked about payment

[/quote]



On earth, I'm talking about emergency room patients in gary's world before it - your world - becomes perfect with a single-payer UHC system in which no one is turned away, if the patient has no insurance and no ability to pay, the loser is shown the door, thus helping to keep your insurance premiums "more affordable."



You seemed concerned that nobody discusses the unconstitutional mandate Congress imposes on hospitals.



We're talking about it.



Btw, please quote from the Constitution, Article this and Section that, and explain how the mandate is unconstitutional.

[/quote]





The part that prohibits Congress from interfering in Commerce and manipulating the market.



Or should EMTALA simply be viewed as a tax on hospitals?



If so why not allow everybody to get free treatment and let the hospitals figure it out?

[/quote]



Article, section?

[/quote]





The same one referred to in the recent Supreme Court hearing over the health care insurance mandate

[/quote]




Impressive show of constitutional knowledge, about on a par with your biblical knowledge.

When will you drop the personal rancour like you and the rest of the staff are now united on?

Dusty, did you just miss that the Supreme Court made a ruling about the Constitutionality of the new law? And it found it entirely Constitutional. The whole thing. It is legal and it is the law of the land.

I missed it. I only saw one Supreme Court ruling that ruled that the mandate was unconstitutional under the commerce clause, but is constitutional as a tax. Tell me about this secret ruling where they ruled that the whole thing was constitutional. When are they going to release it to the public? I am just dying to know. And boy are those states in for a rude awaking when they find out that the Supreme Court held a second secret ruling reversing their just released ruling invalidating Medicaid expansion requirements for the states.



The fireworks are going to fly when the states find out about this secret ruling only you and the nine justices know about. This is the scoop of the century.

But wait, there’s more.



The Supreme Court says it is legal to tax us peons for NOT doing a particular act. This, in effect, means there are no limits on what can be taxed now.
  • If you don’t vote Republican, pay The Man $ 1,000.
  • If you don’t go out and buy a new Glock with 500 rounds of ammo, pay The Man $ 600.
  • If you show up at a voting booth without Voter ID, pay The Man $ 200.
  • If you don’t throw a rock at your TV every time you see Rachel Maddow’s ugly mug, pay The Man $ 300.
