I just came back from having taxes done. Our tax preparer gave us information on the new national healthcare program and noted many things that will change throughout this year. She noted that so many people whose taxes she prepares have no idea just how much impact the changes will have on so many people. Starting with the “penalty for not having healthcare insurance. She believes most people are under the impression that this is going to be “free” healthcare. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is anything but free. The penalty doubles each year if you don’t sign up for insurance.
Businesses are simply going to pass along all their costs through price increases. Some companies will pay the “penalty” for a few years just because it will be cheaper than trying to manage the insurance regulations and costs. The national healthcre program will rest squarely on the backs of the middle class.
Our legislators are doing nothing to remedy this situation either. Now that the real and truthful impact is about to be felt our citizens will be in for some real upheaval. Please pass along this information because the word is just beginning to get out. We need to be prepared for some really shocking healthcare insurance news.
