Or if you can't afford it. No matter what the government says and does to try to make things easier, there are always going to be people who
legitimately cannot afford what they are going to have to pay.
Also, if you are a poor young adult who, according to the federal government, would qualify for Medicaid but live in a state that is refusing to
expand Medicaid, you will fall through the cracks, as you will not be able to take advantage of the governmental health insurance exchange or get the
tax credits. Why? Because according to the federal government, you should have Medicaid.
And as for those catastrophic plans that most people have because that's all they need. Yeah, Obamacare took those off the table.
Personally, I find myself in the young adult crack, and I may lose everything because of it. Because the simple fact of the matter is that, if my tax
return doesn't take care of the fine, I refuse
to pay a fine (that's right, a financial penalty for not following a law is a FINE, I don't care
what the spin artists in Washington call it) that comes about as the result of an illegal law that makes me a financial slave to a corporation,
especially when that fine will come about because the government is too incompetent to ensure that an extremely vulnerable part of the population
doesn't fall through the cracks.
