Pay even more money for not buying something you don’t want.
Welcome to Obama’s America…
Troubling news for all those struggling to pay for their health insurance.
If you are unable to pay for that health insurance, the penalty for not doing so is going up – substantially.
It is an odd thing to see the federal government mandating something millions don’t have the money to buy and then increasing the monetary penalty from the very people who don’t have the money to pay it.
According to a just released MSNBC report, many Middle Class families are now looking at a non-compliance Obamacare penalty that is approaching $1500. The poorest of families will see the penalty DOUBLE to over $700.
Ah, but guess what?
The law as written has no actionable consequences for not paying the penalty.
That’s right – unless Mr. Obama decides to break the law (which he has already proven more than willing to do) the IRS has no real authority to make you pay. Even taking some or all of your refund to pay the non-compliance penalty is an uncertain possibility as outlined earlier this year by Forbes:
…So what would the penalty for noncompliance be? Jail time? Nope. The language in the Act specifically rules out jail time, saying at Section 500A(g)(2)(A):
In the case of any failure by a taxpayer to timely pay any penalty imposed by this section, such taxpayer shall not be subject to any criminal prosecution or penalty with respect to such failure.
The Forbes report then goes on to explain the IRS has no wage garnishment authority or tax lien authority related to Obamacare either. It is literally a tax for which taxpayers are not required to pay with no real penalties for not doing so.
Even the threat of the IRS taking some or all of your tax refund is appears uncertain:
“…Real consequences? Other than that potential refund seizure and a guilty conscience, there’s nothing to keep taxpayers from opting out of paying.”
Now here is where people have a legitimate power they didn’t know about because both the Mainstream Media and its political cohorts in Congress and the White House have been keeping that power under wraps.
Obamacare will likely collapse in very short order if people refuse to sign up for Obamacare, and then also refuse to pay the penalty for not doing so. And if a Republican takes the White House in 2016, this death spiral will no doubt be further uninhibited and thus, accelerated to the benefit of all.
What say you, America? Feel like going to war against tyranny without having to fire a shot?
