Have a Hardship? Opt Out of Obamacare!

just deal with itObamacare is now supposedly the law of the land…unless you have the new playbook.  Believe it or not, if you know the new rules, you just might be able to snub deadlines and penalties of not having health insurance and opt out as if you’re a congressman.

The Wallstreet Journal reports that all you need to do is let the government know that your healthcare insurance was cancelled and you’ll be exempt.  Or…you can, per the WJ, just tell them you’re hard up for cash and can’t afford it:

“This lax standard—no formula or hard test beyond a person’s belief—at least ostensibly requires proof such as an insurer termination notice. But people can also qualify for hardships for the unspecified nonreason that “you experienced another hardship in obtaining health insurance,” which only requires “documentation if possible.” And yet another waiver is available to those who say they are merely unable to afford coverage, regardless of their prior insurance. In a word, these shifting legal benchmarks offer an exemption to everyone who conceivably wants one.” The rest of the story here.

Personally, I am waiting for the O-care  government-audacity opt-out clause for the mere reason that I don’t agree with this entitlement program and government overreach. But that would likely require new leadership at the helm of Washington D.C.  At what point can the Obama Administration just admit that socialized health care is simply a horrible idea- apologize- and scrap the whole thing?

I’m guessing on a cold day in…congress.

Meanwhile, it looks like the Democrats are creating loopholes large enough to drive Liberty loving, gas-guzzling SUV’s through.
