Ah, yes, TruthSeeker, troll on over to an old thread where you can post your foolish comments. You are too lazy to post RW talking points. Oh, right, you are too lazy to even try to remember them. You might as well be posting on a forum devoted to the latest soap opera gossip.

First, TruthSeeker, I am not a guy. Perhaps you need to develop better reading comprehension skills?

Starting in 2014, the penalty for not purchasing health care insurance is $95.00/year.

The mandate is a republican principle developed by the Heritage Foundation in response to the health care reforms presented during the Clinton presidency. The mandate is the cornerstone of the state-wide Massachusetts health care insurance law which was signed by republican governor, Mitt Romney.

Solutions.....Nelliebly is typical leftie. Only believes what he wants to believe; the heck with facts! They get in their way. Let him stay ignorant. His real lesson will be when he gets FINED for not purchasing health insurance. WHich most WV folks won't be able to afford. Most WV drivers are driving without insurance because they cannot keep payments up on it. Now health insurance??? Yeah right. They think in WV they'll get it FREE? WV is a POOR state. POOR folks can't afford to pay for this. Taxes won't get paid if you don't have the money to pay it. Idiots in this state....democrats think they can just keep taxing the poor? At what point do they think the PEOPLE will revolt? Next upcoming election and they KNOW IT> They dems are in damage control now....one democrat from Cabell county, Mr. Kelly I believe is already leaving democrat party and PRETENDING to be a Republican because he KNOWS we are booting this IGNORANT party of tax raisers OUT!

Right you are WMW. There are no unemployed republicans or republicans who need government assistance...there are no republican farmers who demand farm subsidies or republican businesses which use every tax loop hole invented. The problem with republican voters is that their "news" and "information" comes to them through the RW Media Machine which filters everything and produces lies and misinformation. Republican politicians lie and distort and cannot even create legislation which isn't cleared through lobbyists and ALEC.

Read for comprehension, solutions...from the same Baltimore Sun article 7/29/13: In fact, the amount you pay out of pocket for your health care costs may well be lower under Obamacare, even if your premiums go up. That's because the insurance policies allowed in the health care exchange all must meet certain minimum qualifications in terms of their benefits and covered services. Most preventive care under the Affordable Care Act will be included in the price of insurance premiums, without deductibles or co-pays. People who previously bought low-rate, high deductible, low-benefit plans may find that they will now not only get a more comprehensive set of services but also pay less in the end, even if their premiums go up.

And that's not counting the fact that most — state officials estimate three-fourths — of the people buying coverage on the exchange will be eligible for federal subsidies.

HuffPo excerpt - 7/26: Health coverage sold on Obamacare's health insurance exchange in Maryland will be among the cheapest in the country, state officials said Friday.

A 21-year-old nonsmoker will be able to buy health insurance that costs as little as $93 a month on the Maryland Health Connection, the state's health insurance exchange, starting Oct. 1 for coverage that takes effect Jan 1, the Maryland Insurance Division revealed in a press release.

My point is relevant, solutions. IRS employees have government sponsored health care insurance. There is no reason for them to be covered by ACA. That is the point their union was attempting to make to the congressman who was wasting more time in trying to distort and confuse the issue. The House has voted to repeal ACA over thirty times...this was just more nonsense. You people are so easily fooled.

FYI...there are 535 members of Congress. In addition to their salaries and many benefits, the American taxpayers are subsidizing their health care insurance coverage by an average of $700/person/month. This includes coverage of their dependents and staff.

Again, solutions, this is about an amendment proposed by a REPUBLICAN congressman meant to distort and confuse. Government employees have health care insurance. ACA is for those who do not.

You are not reading beyond the headlines nor are you hearing beyond FoxNoise. Rep. Camp is a republican who is grandstanding.

excerpt/link not permitted: However, a bill (HR 1780) introduced in April by Rep. David Camp (R–Mich.) would extend that requirement to all federal employees, an idea that does not sit well with the union.

solutions, this is an excerpt from fact check dot org (no links permitted): House and Senate members are allowed to purchase private health insurance offered through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, which covers more than 8 million other federal employees, retirees and their families.

It’s not a “single-payer” system where the government acts as the one and only health insurance company. As President Bush’s chief of personnel Kay Coles James said in 2003, while lecturing at the conservative Heritage Foundation, “the FEHB program is not centralized, government-run health care.” It has drawn praise both from conservatives and liberals, including President Obama, who held it up as a model for his own health care proposals.

According to the Congressional Research Service, the FEHBP offers about 300 different private health care plans, including five government-wide, fee-for-service plans and many regional health maintenance organization (HMO) plans, continued...

Puremagix, you are accurately describing the classic republican Southern Strategy. You and all right wing extremists have perfected the art of projection. quote: "Obama and the Democrats are masters at pitting one class of people against the other."

The IRS employees were asked to oppose an amendment by...a republican congressman. The propaganda you respond to is, as always, just that...propaganda and lies.
