Penalty flag


This letter is in response to Mr. Powers’ letter regarding Obamacare.

Mr. Powers, you should know the facts. If you currently have a healthcare plan, you will not have to pay a penalty for not enrolling in an exchange. Only those who don’t have insurance and refuse to join an exchange will pay a penalty. That fine is to cover the cost of caring for people who use the ER for healthcare.

Believe me, you and everyone else who has healthcare are now paying extra for uninsured people whether or not you like it. Someone has to pay for their healthcare.
