    *IRS: Cheapest Obamacare Plan Will Be $20,000 Per Family… :shock:

    We Must First Pass The Bill To See Whats In The Bill ______Nancy Pelosi

    Well now were seeing it

    *The examples point to families of four and families of five, both of which the IRS expects in its assumptions to pay a minimum of $20,000 per year for a bronze plan.

    “The annual national average bronze plan premium for a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children) is $20,000,” the regulation says.

    Bronze will be the lowest tier health-insurance plan available under Obamacare–after Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Under the law, the penalty for not buying health insurance is supposed to be capped at either the annual average Bronze premium, 2.5 percent of taxable income, or $2,085.00 per family in 2016.

    In the new final rules published Wednesday, IRS set in law the rules for implementing the penalty Americans must pay if they fail to obey Obamacare’s mandate to buy insurance

  • Coffee Steve

    *Former NYC Mayor Ed Koch Dies at 88 RIP Mayor


  • Letmethink

    Morning Coffee
    Glad performance went well. What did you sing?
    Yes obamacare has really brought down the cost of health care and the very poor will get coverage—false. Still hard to believe that forcing this upon the American people was not found to be unconstitutional—grrr
    Lets see what video caused the deaths at the Turkish embassy.

  • Coffee Steve


    I sang the modern version of Amazing Grace with 3 other members, I got lucky they drowned out my voice :-)

    Its the one Chris Tomlin sings

  • Letmethink

    Beautiful version. One of my favorite songs.

  • Coffee Steve


    Mine too.

  • cathy

    Poor Mark2, he isn’t going to like this news.

    New polls show that Bill O’Reilly is the number one favorite personality among college graduates. Jon Steward is number three.

  • Letmethink

    @cathy–when they do “man on the street” interviews and ask about O’Reilly, the response is generally positive. Love it!

  • Coffee Steve

    They closed the schools today here and in Louisville due to slick roads and cold temps, its dropped to 5 and wind chill minus 10 now. But my kid has school :-)

    Bet she tries the snow day thing though LOL

  • Letmethink

    I am a gentlemen so I’ll be nice

    Say that quietly please :-)

  • Letmethink

    @coffee. I know–why do I do that? I’m sure it will drop 50 degrees as punishment for being mean.
    Did you see my post yesterday about bourbon. Do you know the town of Bourban, KY?

  • Coffee Steve


    Yep, I know of it, but don’t remember ever being there, it’s a little North East of Lexington, KY and I think we passed through there a few times going to Cincinnati
