The Law Itself Says Virtually No One Has To Participate In ObamaCare!

Obamacare SC The Law itself says virtually no one has to participate in ObamaCare!

Twila Brase, president of the Citizen’s Council for Health Freedom (CCHF) and one of the most educated of Americans concerning the ins and outs of Barack Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, believes the language of the law makes it clear that the overwhelming majority of people do not have to participate in ObamaCare unless they freely wish to do so. Brase writes:

Obamacare has more chinks in its armor than a turtle without a shell. As a result, state governors and legislators can inflict great damage. The following amazing chink was discussed by a Goldwater Institute attorney during a Tennessee-based webinar on Monday (at which I was a panelist). It’s only 10 lines long in the 950-page version of the law:

‘No individual, company, business, nonprofit entity, or health insurance issuer offering group or individual health insurance coverage shall be required to participate in any Federal health insurance program created under this Act (or any amendments made by this Act), or in any Federal health insurance program expanded by this Act (or any such amendment), and there shall be no penalty or fine imposed upon any such issuer for choosing not to participate in such programs.’

I emailed Twila Brase and suggested that this language indicates that ONLY “health insurance issuers” may escape fines or penalties for not participating in Barack Obama’s signature healthcare takeover. Individuals and businesses who choose to not participate will face crushing fines and penalties obviously designed to FORCE their submission to the will of the left. Certainly, we have already heard of these punitive fines and penalties.

Ms. Brase was kind enough to respond, writing that “lawyers disagree” with my reading of this tiny portion of the law.

Is it possible that we are misreading the language and intent of the law? Does the above sentence actually mean to say that all “individuals, businesses, nonprofit entities and health insurance issuers” who offer group and individual health insurance coverage and refuse participation in ObamaCare will not be fined? That is, individuals who offer group or individual health insurance, businesses who offer group or individual health insurance, etc? Clearly, this would dramatically reduce the number of those who could refuse to obey the ObamaCare law and still avoid punishment.

One thing is certain–it’s difficult to imagine that a radical left at long last politically capable of literally controlling the life and death of 300 million American citizens could be guilty of stating that no one has to obey its commands! How could these power-hungry Marxists manufacture a 2700 page law, bribe and intimidate recalcitrant politicians into supporting it, and then commit such an extraordinary oversight?

Nearly 3 dozen lawsuits designed to take down ObamaCare are now working their way through federal courts. Maybe the question of who must really obey the law will eventually be answered. Until then, we can only hope that Twila Brase is absolutely correct and the creators of ObamaCare have made a monumental blunder.

  3. No way do I want anyone to fine me if I do not and cannot afford health insurance from the government. I hope this is true that I do not have to apply for Obamacare if I am broke.

  4. And you don't want affordable health care why? Who would Jesus ensure? Isn't the GOP God's Own Party? Again, who would Jesus Ensure.

    • Affordable health care at what cost? Even Obama doesn't have a straight answer for that. Just ask him if you should have the chance. Ask him how he intended to pay for all of it. Watch him dodge your question and change the topic. Or he might tell you "It's over. I won the election. Drop it." Eh, so what if it means we give up some of our liberties? So what if it means tighter regulations? So what if it means having to close down hospitals all over because they can't pay for their staff or equipment? So what if it means forcing businesses to pay for a huge package to put their employees on, sacrificing a good amount of their paycheck? So what if it means having to qualify for treatment? So what if it means all around higher taxes? So what if it means "costs will necessarily skyrocket"? No big deal, right? It's just a country. Dozens of those around the world with the same if not similar systems already in place, dragging them under. Why should the US be any different, right? It's all fair, isn't it?
      Don't mock Jesus, dude. If you knew anything about him, you wouldn't be asking that. Of course, I could answer your question, but what's the point? You wouldn't believe me. You believe Obama is going to save the world. That was one of his campaign promises. That and he was going to fundamentally change America (never did say into what). You took him at his word and left it at that. Now you want us to roll over and just accept it? Four years later, the damage has already been done and he's just getting warmed up. Sorry, not rolling over for that. The cost has already been too high.
