What is the mechanism for this proposed ACA income verification?
re: all the talk of adding income verification as part of Senate deal.
What would be the specific, practical method? What would the legislation actually say?
(This is the kind of thing that could be anything from window-dressing to ACA-crippling nightmare depending on the details. Hence the question.)Star Member NYC_SKP (53,595 posts)
1. Think of it as Voter ID except with healthcare: 50 ways to disenfranchise the poor.
They know damn well that the poorest among us have the greatest difficulty proving anything while those with wealth can just ask a slave to do it for them.
It's just one more reason for universal single-payer, if you ask me.It's becoming clearer that many leftists think that Obamacare should be handled the same way as voter verification, illegal immigration and the pigford debacle......jberryhill (31,659 posts)

Looking like republicans maybe have found a way to sneakily delay Obamcare...
How many have read that proposals to open the government will include income verification for Obama care..
At this time time that would not happen ( as I understand it) income verification would be handled by the IRS when taxes are filed... IF the republicans get there way income verification would happen BEFORE you can sign up.. I heard in radio this morning this would slow sign-ups to a crawl. The number 1 goal for republicans is to make sure they can get to the 2014 mid-term elections without having to hear how great Obamacare is working out.. ANYTHING to slow it down and prevent those stories is there #1 goal..The Obama Administrations incompetence in developing a website in order to sign up for Obamacare.........delays??? not problem. Verifying income in order to verify that one is actually eligible for reduced rates........no way...that will delay it....Star Member geek tragedy (31,923 posts)
2. If the income verification impedes sign-ups, it'll be rejected on sight. nt
