The Supreme Court upholds Obamacare individual mandate.
President Obama wanted to pass this bill for healthcare because millions of people are without health insurance in the United States, what does this mean to us? we are required to get insurance or pay a tax penalty. Single adult could pay $95 a year or up to 1% of their income; a family could pay $285 a year or up to 1% of their income. Please Note!!! the price of the penalty goes up every year. This mandatory healthcare doesn't take effect until 2014.
I don't know if I'm on board with this only because I have a lot of questions of my own and I need a thorough explanation on how this is going to work. What if a person is out of work, how do they get insurance without a job? what about prescription plans? will it be priced the same as before or will that go up as well? and the same question for co-pay.
Not only we are forced, I mean required to have already pricy insurance but the lower-income families have to dish out more money to keep up with their insurance or to insure their entire family so they don't have to pay the penalty. It's already a struggle to pay for the gauging price of food, gasoline, sales taxes, clothes, education/loans and everything else. I don't have insurance right now and I hope this does not backfire on the United States. For more info on the healthcare bill, click here.
