Did Obamacare’s “stupid” supporters know that they were supporting a policy that wages a tax war on kids?
Eh, what they knew or didn’t know really doesn’t matter. Those “stupid” people enabled this:
Americans will see their bank accounts shrink if they don’t sign up for Obamacare in its second enrollment season.
Uninsured Americans who decide not to enroll will face a penalty of $325 per person, more than tripling the $95 penalty those who did not enroll had to pay the first time around.
Children under the age of 18 will be fined $162.50. The maximum amount an uninsured family will be penalized is $975 under the flat-rate method.
Funny how we’re only learning about this tax on kids after the last elections of Obama’s miserable presidency.
By the way, the use of “stupid” above isn’t my choice of words. That’s the word that Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber repeatedly uses to describe people who support Obamacare.
