Drawbacks of Obamacare

Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act, was signed into law in March 2010. On the surface-level, its promise to provide healthcare to millions of uninsured Americans sounds only like a benefit. While high-earners, corporations, and certain healthcare sectors are negatively affected by the law, those under the age of 35 are also specifically affected. Three reasons why:

1. Young people get sick less. Under Obamacare, young adults can stay on parents’ plans until they are 26. However, many young people tend to be healthy anyway and not need the coverage older Americans need. Since insurance companies are required to cover sick people, the costs of insurance increase for healthy young adults.

 2. Job cuts. According to one section of the law, the employer mandate, businesses with over 50 full-time employees need to provide health coverage, or pay a monthly tax fee. The annual fee is $2,000 or $3,000 per employee, depending on the circumstance.

As a result, some businesses cut employee hours. On Investors.com, records of cuts include pay cuts to student employees at Penn State University, Pennsylvania full-time workers at David’s Bridal, New Jersey College Hunks movers, NJ’s Hollywood Casino, and several school districts, just to name a few. If you’re counting on that full-time job to pay the bills, just hope that your employer isn’t affected.

By 2016, businesses will need to provide 95% of their full-time workers with insurance, if they have over 100 full-timers.

3. Deadlines. Under the individual mandate, you should have obtained health coverage by January 2014. If you missed the deadline, you were expected to get an exemption or begin paying a tax penalty for each month you didn’t have insurance.

In 2014, the fee for being uninsured is $95 per adult and $47.50 per child (up to $285 for a family) or 1% of your taxable income, whichever is the greater cost. In 2015, the fee will increase to a whopping $325 per adult or $162.50 per child (up to $975 per household), or 2% of your taxable income, whichever is greater.

Eventually, Obamacare allowed enrollment to extend to May 1st, 2014 to avoid the financial penalties—but if you missed the May deadline, you now need to wait until November 15th, 2014 and see if you can be covered under “qualifying life events” with special enrollment.

Complicated, costly, and deterring its original purpose to afford healthcare to all citizens, Obamacare evidently has a few drawbacks for young Americans.

  • Los Blancos, with captain Sergio Ramos suspended after deliberately collecting a yellow card in the first leg, had been looking to build on a slender 2-1 lead from that game in Amsterdam and stay on course for a potential fourth straight European triumph.

    However, after Raphael Varane’s header rattled the crossbar, Ajax raced into an early lead through Hakim Ziyech before Dusan Tadic set up David Neres for a second in the 18th minute.

    Real Madrid were forced into two changes when Lucas Vazquez and Vinicius Junior went off injured, with substitute Gareth Bale hitting the post just before half-time.

    Ajax looked to have put the tie to bed when Tadic swept in a brilliant third goal just after the hour – which was eventually given following an extensive Video Assistant Referee review to check if the ball had gone out of play in the build-up.

    But those three names do not appear anywhere in the complaint text, though the document gives enough clues to make clear who is who.

  • Trump was surrounded at Friday’s event by officials from Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have loved ones killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President’s veto event.
    While some lawmakers including some Republicans — have argued against the President’s use of national emergency powers in this instance, the Justice Department set forth a robust defense of the President’s authority to do so in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month, according to a copy obtained by CNN on Friday.
    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.

  • Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.
