Universal free healthcare isn't what the ACA is about.
It's intended to get everyone insured at a cost of their own for the most part.
Even if you pay for insurance it is cheaper than higher taxes would be under a single payer system.

Today when I went to the bank to make a deposit, I had stepped into the bank GM's office, and I asked her if she had heard of anything related to this. She said that all she knew about was that they would deduct the penalty from your tax return, but she didn't hear about the government being able to take it directly from your bank account.
Now either the government hasn't notified banks about how they plan to deduct penalty fees, or the bank GM is just blowing smoke up my rear.
The next time you guys go to the bank, don't be afraid to talk to the branch manager and see if they have heard about this. I guess it could depend on your bank, but I'd figure every bank would be included in the memo.
