The rate depends on the city and county of purchase. See 'Sources and related links' below for the current rates.
The colonists was not happy with the introduction of new taxes. They increased British military and started the Boston Tea Party.
Obamacare is the term used to describe the Affordable Care Act that was signed into law by President Obama in March of 2010. The Affordable Care Act, also known as the Patient… Protection and Affordable Care Act or PPACA, expands the government's role in the provision of healthcare by expanding coverage through new entities (State Exchanges) and existing government programs (Medicaid, Community Health Centers), restructuring how coverage is provided (Medicare) and delivered (Accountable Care Organizations, Medical Homes), all with the intent of creating a healthcare system that dramatically reduces the size of the uninsured population in the United States.
If it is over 6 pages (the size of the Constitution) it is too big... 2000 The number of pages depends on how the law is formatted. When it was a bill, it was over 2,000 page…s long. Formatting led to it being 961 pages as a law. The law contains 2,163,744 words. According to Wolfram|Alpha, that is about a 24 pound book.
According to studies and polls which have been conducted, NO senators fully read the bill.... Which is no different than any large bill passed by Congress. Congr…ess members work on specific sections, and rely on other members (and their leadership) to explain the other provisions they didn't work on. The hitch here is that it appears that the leadership was never able to provide a full summary of the PPACA to members, so members voted on it based on a bit more faith and trust than normal. But it's hardly uncommon for this to happen.
As Obamacare (the PPACA law) is not some sort of coverage plan, but rather a healthcare regulatory framework law, no one will be directly covered by Obamacare. R…oughly 11 million people who do not currently have medical coverage are expected to be covered under some method provided by the PPACA. The majority (about 60%) of these folks will be through expanded Medicaid coverage. The remainder will mostly be people buying coverage through a state or federal Exchange, with subsidies possible from their employer and/or the federal government. A large unknown is the number of people who qualify for exchange-based coverage (and possibly some level of subsidy), but choose not to purchase that coverage. Note that we will NOT know actual numbers until most likely 2016 at the earliest, as there are considerable kinks to work out in the new law, and actual coverage numbers will be unknown until all reporting is finished, which typically lags at least a full calendar year behind reality.
No. Just a rumor going around.
2000 pages are in the ACA.
Yes. Only about 50% of Americans pay any federal income tax. Obama saying that this is not a tax is a lie because the money has to come from some where and where is that mon…ey going to come from? Taxes. It's only logic.
One of the dumbest and most irrelevant questions i've seen in a very long time. and way to show your predisposition by calling it Obamacare. It is actually, almost verbatim, a… Heritage Foundation (conservative) authored plan anyway. call it Heritage care. One person opinion is OK to express. This plan has 2000 pages. Mr. Obama said he didn't mind it called Obamacare.
Is it part of the ObamaCare bill that you will be taxed 1 percent on any amount that you deposit in a bank in US?
What are the upper level ObamaCare taxes prepared to whack US medical device hospital furniture revenues and why doesnt ObamaCare taxation solely hit profits instead of punishing viability?
This is actually a good (if not a complicated) question. Much of the rhetoric around the health-care law has in fact been exaggerated and mythic, put forward by opponents of t…he law. But in this case, there is an actual, not an exaggerated, controversy about a tax on medical devices and certain medical supplies. A number of lobbyists and special interest groups, as well as hospital administrators, are understandably upset that this tax is part of the new health care law. It should be noted that any new law will often need to be tweaked or modified, and this particular provision is on the radar of many in the administration, including some members of congress who have a number of hospitals in their district. I don't know when it will be addressed, but I will be very surprised if it doesn't get fixed in the near future. I would advise that you call your representative and reiterate your eagerness to see it addressed sooner rather than later..
How much money a person has to pay in taxes if they don't have insurance depends on how much money they make and how big their family is. Obama Care will decide the amounts.
No. Medicare is an entirely separate system from the PPACA, and funded from a different source. Medicare is a social insurance program paid (primarily) from payroll taxes, and… open to US citizens 65 and older. The PPACA allows for the expansion of Medicaid (medical coverage for the poor), and is funded by the states and federal government out of the general tax revenue of both. The operation of the PPACA-created Insurance Exchanges are paid for out of state funds (even if Federally-run, the state must reimburse the Federal government for proporational costs). All enforcement and compliance funding comes from the general operating budget of the relevant agencies/departments. Both of these costs should be offset by additional taxes and fees levied on the healthcare industry as part of the PPACA. The final portion, the subsidies given to the people who buy insurance through the Exchanges come from the Federal government. They are paid for from general tax revenue, which will include any PPACA-related penalties paid by non-compliant individuals and businesses.
