    In Medicare part B and part D if you do not take the insurance when you are first eligible for it and at a later date decide you want it, to get it you have to pay the cost of premiums from first eligibility to the time you want to take it.

    Now, in Obamacare you do not have to take insurance but can pay a nominal fine for the first few years, then it will grow to more than the premiums.

    Now the question. If in Obamacare you do not take it when first available and at a later date try to sign up, will you be penalized all those premiums you would have paid like in medicare?

    I have not heard anything about this, just wonder if it is in the law.

    I would be surprised if it isn't in the law but have not heard either way.

    Neither would I. It's probably buried in there somewhere, waiting to pounce on the first guy two years down the road who decides it's his only choice.

    This is why the Affordable Health Care Law (actually a tax according to the Supreme Court) is an unconstitutional law (or whatever - for convenience sake - they call it next) because no one knows what it contains.

    - we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy -

    It was a (bill, act, law, tax, whatever) that was passed without the informed consent of the governed and has to be revoked immediately and let the "fog" of the controvery be settled so that the governed know to what they are consenting.
