The more I learn about Obama Care the harder I laugh at it, then I cry.I was reading about a part of the Obama care plan that caught my eye was the federal fine, I mean penalty a person receives if they opt out of this forced state-run health care plan. In 2014 a single person receives a $95.00 fine if they choose not to take insurance, and the amount for a family can pay an amount of $285.00. It gets funnier, by 2016 that amount raises to $695.00 and $2085.00 respectively. Really, a fine for not taking something you do not want. This is a classic case of Socialism in America.
Why would such a thing be implemented into this health care law? It is my life, my choice. If I do not want to pay for health insurance it is my Constitutional right not to take it. I have that freedom made possible by our founding fathers not to be forced into something I choose not to do. Remember learning about the Boston Tea Party. Didn’t these patriots rebel against Great Britain because the colonist disagreed with the tax policy of the British government. This iconic moment in our nations history was the beginning of our glorious revolution.
In reading this idiotic plan it also states that when I file my income taxes for 2014 I will be asked if I take health insurance. If the answer is no and I am single the IRS will automatically take $95.00 out of my refund. So this is saying that no matter what Mr Obama and his Socialist state gets money out of me in some way or another. My question how did something like this get passed? Why would our elected leaders of this nation carry out such a law that is similar to what we dome in Soviet Russia, or Nazi Germany?
We used to live in a Democratic society where our freedoms were protected. This is why the immigrants came to America in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Most immigrants were fleeing their home countries because they wanted the freedoms America stood for. They were fleeing dictatorships, KIngs and Iron fist rulers to a nations where freedom actually meant something.
What happened to America where we have no rights to choose anymore? Better yet why are we letting this happen?
