You state they had classroom training. They were obviously trained with presumptions of the regulations. The actual penalties were not finalized until two days ago. The main thing you should realize is that the "Heaalthcare" law will not be fully implemented until 2016! This is partially because it takes time to implement something on this scale, but I believe moreso to suck in as many illinformed people as possible, because once you are in the system you will find it nearly impossible to exit. Some examples given by the IRS show a 10 fold in the actual cost (for enrollees) from what is initially stated and what you will pay when fully implemented in '16. If this ratio is correct, you will be looking at $1,475 per month. That's right $17,700 a year. This correlates with the $20,000 refered to in the other thread for a family of 5, which you have. You, I am guessing don't quite make the $120,000 in the example, therefore it is less. Obviously the Government has never once run a program as efficiently as they first claim they can, therefore I believe even this # will jump even before we arrive to this point. IF YOU RELY ON THE GOVERNMENT FOR ANYTHING BESIDES PHYSICAL SECURITY ON A NATIONAL SCALE YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM, AND YOU WILL ALWAYS COME OUT A LOOSER IN THE END! NATIONAL SECURITY IS THE ONLY THING THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE INVOLVED IN!!!
In addition, this penalty (TAX) so many believe to be a reasonable price does not cause you to be insured. It taxes you for your inaction (freaking crazy) THEN you pay the Government for your insurance!!!!!
WAKE UP AND PAY ATTENTION!!!
