OBAMACARE FINES TO BE SEIZED FROM BANK ACCOUNTS?
MAN WHO ATTEMPTED TO SIGN UP CLAIMS HE WAS THREATENED WITH DRIVERS LICENSE BEING REVOKED, FEDERAL TAX LIEN ON HOME
Paul Joseph Watson
October 2, 2013
A man who attempted to sign up for Obamacare online was told that a fine of over $4,000 dollars a year for refusing to take out mandatory health insurance could be taken directly from his bank account, and that his drivers license would be suspended and a federal tax lien placed against his home, according to an entry on the HealthCare.gov Facebook page.
If true, the implementation of Obamacare is going to be a whole lot more draconian than Americans have been led to believe.
Will Sheehan claims that when he tried to sign up for Obamacare and THEN REGISTER TO OPT OUT, he received an ominous warning. Sheehan’s full Facebook post reads;
“I actually made it through this morning at 8:00 A.M. I have a preexisting condition (Type 1 Diabetes) and my income base was 45K-55K annually I chose tier 2 “Silver Plan” and my monthly premiums came out to $597.00 with $13,988 yearly deductible!!! There is NO POSSIBLE way that I can afford this so I “opt-out” and chose to continue along with no insurance.
I received an email tonight at 5:00 P.M. informing me that my fine would be $4,037 and could be attached to my yearly income tax return. Then you make it to the “REPERCUSSIONS PORTION” for “non-payment” of yearly fine. First, your drivers license will be suspended until paid, and if you go 24 consecutive months with “Non-Payment” and you happen to be a home owner, you will have a federal tax lien placed on your home. You can agree to give your bank information so that they can easy “Automatically withdraw” your “penalties” weekly, bi-weekly or monthly! This by no means is “Free” or even “Affordable.”
Sheehan went on to point out that the site makes you input all your personal information before giving you an indication of the costs, meaning a database of the “uninsured” is being built. He added that he could not afford to pay the premium so would have to break the law and pay the fine, leaving him with no health care coverage.
The federal government has consistently denied that any fines pertaining to Obamacare non-compliance could be seized from bank accounts, despite reports last year that the IRS had hired 16,500 new agents to harass citizens who attempt to evade the new law.
“There’s no criminal sanctions for not paying this, and there’s no ability to levy a bank account or do seizures,” then-IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman said in April 2010.
In addition, Americans who refuse to pay for mandatory health insurance “shall not be subject to any criminal prosecution,” according to the law itself.
Section 1501(g)(2) of the Affordable Care Act also states that the IRS cannot “file notice of lien with respect to any property of a taxpayer by reason of any failure to pay the penalty imposed by this section.”
Either Sheehan’s claim that he received this notice is a lie, or the feds have been dishonest with the American people all along, and the revolt against Obamacare is about to take “don’t tread on me” to a whole new level.

Obamacare 101: What to know if you opt out of buying health insurance
The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, requires that individuals buy health insurance. If you don’t want to buy insurance, you will have to pay a penalty – unless you qualify for an exemption from the mandate.
The insurance “exchanges” set up under the Affordable Care Act, where people can shop online for health insurance, went live on Oct. 1, and an estimated 48 million uninsured Americans can use them to try to find an affordable plan. The 2010 Obamacare law requires that people have health insurance, or that they pay a fee starting next year if they choose to opt out.
The Christian Science Monitor
Weekly Digital Edition
Here are the ins and outs of forgoing health insurance.
If you don’t have health insurance, and aren’t sure if you want to purchase a plan, how long do you have to decide?
You can sign up for health coverage on an exchange anytime between now and March 1, 2014. Your coverage would begin Jan. 1, 2014, at the earliest. If you do not enroll in that window, you will not be able to get health coverage through the insurance exchange marketplace until the next annual enrollment period unless there are extenuating circumstances.

How much are the penalties for not buying a health plan?
The penalties are not very high to begin with. In 2014, the fine to remain uninsured is $95 per person (up to a family maximum of $285, or 1 percent of family income, whichever is greater).
But the penalty will increase more than sevenfold in the next two years, with the fine running as much as $695 per person by 2016. The family maximum would be as high as $2,085 (or 2.5 percent of family income, whichever is greater).

What kind of insurance policy prevents someone from having to pay the penalty?
In short, any plan that qualifies as “minimum essential coverage.” This includes plans offered on the marketplace exchange, a plan provided by your employer, Medicare, Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), TRICARE, Veterans Healthcare programs, Peace Corps Volunteer plans, and possibly others. For a full list with more details, refer to Healthcare.gov.
What plans don’t qualify?
You’d have to pay the fee if you have only vision or dental coverage or only workers’ compensation, coverage only for specific health conditions, or a plan that offers only discounts on medical services.
Would it be cheaper to buy an insurance plan, and elect to not use it, rather than pay the fee?
It depends, but as of now it is probably cheaper to pay the fine, provided you do not use any health-care services. You can calculate how much your health insurance premium would cost by using the Kaiser Family Foundation Subsidy Calculator, and then you can compare the cost to the penalty you would be assessed for having no insurance. The subsidy calculator takes into account your region, household income, employer coverage, number of family members, and tobacco use.
Why is there a penalty?
The penalty is meant to offset the costs of urgent medical care for individuals who do not have health insurance, according to Healthcare.gov. The website also warns that people without health coverage will have to pay the entire costs of all their medical care.
How does someone apply for an exemption from health insurance so that they don’t have to pay the penalty?
You can claim exemptions on your 2014 federal tax return, or you can apply for exemptions on the Health Insurance Marketplace exchanges. (The application is not currently available). Healthcare.gov will provide up-to-date information about how to apply for an exemption.
Who is eligible for such exemptions?
You can be exempted from the requirement to buy health insurance – and hence, from the penalty – if you meet one of the following requirements:
•You are uninsured for less than three months of the year.
•You live illegally in the United States.
•You’re incarcerated, and not awaiting disposition.
•You’re a member of a recognized Indian tribe.
•Your income is officially deemed too low.
•The lowest-priced converge would cost more than 8 percent of your household income.
•You’re a member of a recognized religious sect with religious objections to insurance, including Social Security and Medicare.
•You’re a member of a recognized health-sharing ministry. (Note: Christian Scientists do not currently qualify for the exemption.)
Healthcare.gov also provides a list of hardship exemptions that qualify an individual for exemption.
This flow chart from the Kaiser Family Foundation might help you determine if you need to buy health insurance.
Massachusetts has granted a religious exemption to its requirement to buy health insurance. Is this exemption still valid?
No. The new federal requirement overrides state provisions, which means that any exemptions not listed under the Affordable Care Act are not included.
If you are not exempt, how will the penalty be assessed?
You will be required to provide information regarding health insurance when you file your 2014 federal income taxes. For those who elect not to buy health coverage, the penalty will probably be assessed on the form or withdrawn from your tax refund.
