Istm, that ~$40/mo * 12mo => ~$500/yr, and that $500/yr < $3852
So, it seems that paying ~$500 / yr and getting insurance is a better deal than paying ~$3000 / yr and not getting insurance.
What am I missing?
I may be wrong.
Lets take a step back, the whole purpose of the ACA is to create a program for those who want to purchase but cannot. People who are determined not to purchase still can do this, but with a cost.
The purpose of the ACA is to eventually create a single payer system and force Americans to purchase health insurance whether they want to or not
This crap sandwich was sold on lies and people like you continue to try and defend it with lies and obfuscation
Coverage may be unaffordable for low-wage workers
Low wage workers are going to have to pay a fine and still not be coveredWASHINGTON (AP) — It's called the Affordable Care Act, but President Barack Obama's health care law may turn out to be unaffordable for many low-wage workers, including employees at big chain restaurants, retail stores and hotels.
Many are expected to remain uninsured, possibly risking fines. That's due to another provision: the law says workers with an offer of "affordable" workplace coverage aren't entitled to new tax credits for private insurance, which could be a better deal for those on the lower rungs of the middle class.
