Affordable Care Act: What if you are broke?
October 16, 2013 9:52 AM Subscribe
I have less-than-no income (under $5000 a year) and I always get Federal tax refunds and "Earned Income Credit" refunds. I have heard that Obamacare will charge people a fine, based on their income. What if my income is sub-poverty?

I remember in 2002, the drumbeat-to-war seemed like it was on the news every night for months and months and months. Well, the 2009-2013 drumbeat-to-Obamacare has been slowly ticking away like a time bomb for four years, and now I think it's really about to go off. I usually just get depressed and I don't listen to all the talk about it, because I have _NO_ money, and _NO_ money to pay for healthcare premiums. I earn $10 an hour at odd jobs and I barely make $5000 a year total income. What should I do about this whole "Affordable Care Act" thing, which they say starts as soon as January?
