    Didn't Obama say that under Obamacare your taxes won't go up?

    Surprise! The nonpartisan CBO just put out a new report that said Obamacare was going to hit 6 million uninsured people, mostly in the middle class, with a tax penalty averaging $1200.  Way to go Big O!

    Hi Cassie,
    Over and over I've asked the ObamaCare supporters here who it is they believe are going to be paying that nice hefty penalty tax. They never answer me because they know I'm right when I say it will be the middle class. Good job trying to get the truth out but they will never admit it.

      Sassy, they always talk about the arithmetic but don't know how to apply it. LOL!

      The numbers given are actually for 2016 by which time the tax break should have allowed plenty of savings from people who are making at least 22 000+ (assuming a family)

      Josak, you do not get the tax break unless you've purchased insurance. They can't afford insurance which must be paid monthly. It's not like the ins. co. will wait till the end of the year for payment. The penalties begin in 2014 not 2016.

      The penalties for 2014 are much lighter however.

      It is apparent that you should read the Law Josak. The penalties are per person or a percentage of income whichever is GREATER. There is no flat penalty. Even so, that isn't anyone "saving" any money to help them.

    Wasn't there something about he wasn't going to raise taxes on the middle class by one thin dime?  Of course just add that to other thousands of broken promises he made to suck people into voting for him and there ya have it.
