Reciept generation service


I want out!


Dear kron,

I have a feeling a growing number of people will be opting out of the system. This is nuts!

And, to top it off, the Republicans will compromise before they repeal any of it.

Still, I think it's hilarious to listen to these lunatics try and explain it to the masses....LOL.

Yeah, I know!

Really, all it would take is an executive order, right? They wouldn't do it...they lie. That judge, the Bush appointee-Roberts is a fake as well.

come on Mac, they have to pay the salaries

of all those tax enforcers and new bureaucrats to administer the program. There's your "service."

Yep, they will add 16,000 new IRS workers and not one new Dr.

Who's going to take care of all those new patients flooding the system? Apparently all those new agents will have medical degrees. LMAO!

These guys are

a joke. If it wasn't so serious. I would be laughing at how they try to lie all the time. CYA.... they are the best at it... but the more lies they tell the deeper the pile gets!

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

Why are there 16,000 new IRS agent then

now armed? The IRS is for the collection of taxes. Thanks traitors!

free rider tax


Obamacare mandates that insurance accept anyone who applies regardless of pre-existing conditions. This mandate allows people to decide not to purchase insurance until they get sick.

To avoid this they instituted a penalty/tax to discourage this.

i thought congress cannot

i thought congress cannot force you to buy something?

Perish the thought.

They're not forcing you to buy health insurance. They're taxing you for the privilege of NOT buying it. Big whoop. Rejoice that we have a Supreme Court to protect us from a Congress that would abuse its power. Or something.

You aren't forced to buy something. You can opt out by paying tribute to your owners.
