Obama’s Phony October 1 “Deadline”

 

September 25, 2013
 

 

October 1 is a phony deadline. Ignore it. Nobody has to sign up for Obamacare. Absolutely nothing has to happen on October 1. Instead, October 1 is the first day to refuse to enroll in Obama's exchanges (refuse2enroll.org). In six days, you can begin your own personal Obamacare resistance campaign. Our motto: Resist. Repeal. Reclaim.

October 1 is a phony deadline. Ignore it. Nobody has to sign up for Obamacare. Absolutely nothing has to happen on October 1. Instead, October 1 is the first day to refuse to enroll in Obama's exchanges (refuse2enroll.org). In six days, you can begin your own personal Obamacare resistance campaign. Our motto: Resist. Repeal. Reclaim.
 
Refusing to enroll in exchanges is not illegal. Refusing is, in fact, a constitutionally-protected right. To be clear, there are three ways to comply with Obamacare without enrolling in the government exchanges:
 
  1. Obtain government-approved private health insurance (only available outside Obamacare exchange) by January 1, 2014 to avoid the "Uninsured Tax" - which will be assessed per month you are uninsured.
 
  1. Choose to go uninsured and pay the "Uninsured Tax" with your 2015 taxes. For tax year 2014 it's $95/year or up to 1% of your income, whichever is greater.
 
  1. If eligible, claim one or more of the nine exemptions to the Obamacare mandate (4) or the Uninsured Tax (5).
 
The "October 1st Deadline" is a merely a marketing ploy to create panic. The Obama administration has doled out millions of taxpayer dollars for marketing and outreach to try to drive the American public into Obama's exchanges. Exchanges face a January 1, 2015 deadline - that's the day all federal funding for exchanges disappears and exchanges become financially dependent on enrollment. Thus, they want you in as soon as possible.
 
Troubling glitches provide more reasons to say no. For instance, Minnesota's exchange (MNsure) recently sent private data on 2,400 insurance agents, including Social Security numbers, to an individual insurance broker. In addition, the federal health insurance exchange (HIX) portal (healthcare.gov) - where people living in the 34 states that refused to set up an exchange can enroll in Obamacare - is still miscalculating prices.
 
Which begs the question: If you're charged too much, does the government have a 1-800-GiveMeMyMoneyBack phone number?
 
Enrollees also face massive exposure to fraud and identity theft. The Feds are creating the nation's largest computerized database of personal data on Americans. There have already been over 1,100 complaints about various types of Obamacare fraud and the Exchanges are not yet operational. Imagine when enrollee data on income, employment, tax status, citizenship, families, insurance, Social Security numbers and more is available in one online hacker-accessible place.
 
Yesterday, the U.S. Senate Republican Policy Committee (RPC) used CCHF's diagram of the Obamacare Hub to highlight the dangers of fraud in the "Monster Exchange."
 
The next six months of open enrollment are critical to stopping Obamacare. We're pleased our Hub diagram has been used by the RPC, Fox News, FreedomWorks and others to explain the Exchange. And we're pleased our "Refuse to Enroll" campaign has been in the national news - The Washington Post, Star Tribune, The Wall Street Journal and CNN to name a few. But there is much more CCHF needs to do to bring the facts about Obamacare and the #refuse2enroll message to Americans.
 
 
Obamacare is the federal takeover of health care. Do not doubt it. Take action now. Donate to CCHF today, refuse to enroll in Obamacare, and share our "Refuse to Enroll" flier with your family, friends and neighbors.
 
Working to make sure Obamacare is repealed once and for all,
