    2014-- Do you plan to pay the mandated premiums or

    will you pay the fine instead? I ask because so many will not be able to afford the premiums. When I was a kid, we had no insurance because our family was so broke, our country was in a recession and inflation was a big problem. There were 10 kids including my stepfamily. My stepdad brought home meat from work (managed a slaughterhouse). My parents each worked 2 jobs.
    What??!!

    1. Unemployed, so... who knows?

    What will the premiums be? What will the fine be? Will the Government put me in jail for not being able to pay the fine? At least there I'll have health care.
    Total morons. Oy.

    4. I'm trying......

    ...since we are retired, but too young to get Medicare, insurance premiums for a cancer survivor are very high......as in $25K/yr high! They have gone from $700/mo when we retired to over $2100/mo now. Can't get insurance anywhere else, so we can't drop it.
    Don't qualify for high-risk pool because we have insurance coverage now. You have to be without it for 6 months to qualify....what friggin idiot wrote that in? Uummmm . . Obama. They want you to risk financial disaster for 6 months before giving you something you MAY be able to afford. We're thinking about dropping it and putting the money in a healthcare savings account.
    NNNNNnnnnnooooooooo! Not an evil health savings account!!!

    Buit aren't those the folks who wanted it because they thought healthcare would be free and paid for by the very rich?

    When you vote for a hope'n'change lottery ticket, you very, very, very seldom win anything, except a lighter pocket, and no change!

    Fortunately, owning a very small business and being basically self employed, I am exempt from the mandate.
    Even if I weren't, I think I would force them to fine me before I would submit to the government any proof that I have a policy.

    Could I create some small crappy website that generates $2 a year in ad revenue, call it my "small business", and not have to pay the fine or get insurance?

    LLC cost + webhosting cost - ad revenue = much cheaper than the fine/health insurance.

    I am not paying on just general principal. I did not vote for that Clown. I wanted no part of it and I will not participate.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Technically you are going to pay for it whether you like it or not. The "fine" plus taxes in general will support the socialized health care - it is forced compliance.

    So the real way to stick it to them is to find a loophole to get out of it completely. While one can't avoid paying taxes period, one can at least directly avoid paying for the monstrosity.
