yes, but as the fee increases, so will that revenue figure...2.3 billion, to us, is a LOT of money...more than any one of us could probably ever spend..to the federal government, you're right, it's not a lot, but think of how much you can actually buy with that much money....every little bit counts.
besides, when they have no business taking it in the first place, even a single dollar is a travesty..

My father works for AFLAC selling supplemental insurance, he tells me that the majority of Americans have NO idea what they are in for when the ACA fully kicks in. Unpayable deductibles, being on the hook for 40% of the medical bills (40/60 plans), rates continuing to go up, the government fine is supposed to increase yearly as well. So many Americans are about to be so royally screwed, many of which naively supported this monstrosity of a bill because of good intentions, but as the saying goes, "the road to hell is paved with good intentions."
Krazy, please tell me what you think is the real reason the government is doing this to us?
