Shirley Bennett: Obama’s message of change is costing us

March 3, 2014 

If you didn’t already know, there will be a penalty for anyone who doesn’t have insurance. You must state on your tax return whether you have insurance or not. For every member of your family that doesn’t have insurance, $95 or 1 percent of your income, whichever is higher, will be deducted from your return (if you expect a return) or it will be deducted from your bank account. Next year, it will increase.

So, all you Obama lovers, he promised change and you’re getting change. Hope you’re content because there are more changes coming.
