No, that is not true.

As of Jan 1 there was about a 5% increase just in the fees we are having to pay for Obamacare. Someone is having to pay that for you.

Nope. I have insurance now for the first time in over a decade. The ACA has worked for me. Thanks for asking!

Maybe a "Thank You" to those of us that picked up your slack is more appropriate?

You must not know many people who are self employed. Our insurance is only good through the end of this year because of Obamacare. The least expensive bronze plan for our family is $6000 a year MORE than what we pay now. We'll keep our current non-compliant plan as long as possible and pay the 1% penalty.

I'd appreciate it if you thanked me for picking up your slack.

If you have employer-based health insurance my taxes have been helping to subsidize your insurance through all of the years, as someone who is self-employed, I couldn't afford to buy it on my own. You're welcome!
