The Obamacare tax on people who don't have insurance has reportedly started. Benjamin Miller of Shipshewana, Indiana posted an image on his Facebook account showing an Obamacare fine of $2,344.00.
They called it an "Unshared Responsibility Payment". Click the image to see it in full:
Thanks Obama for the fine for not having insurance
Because the the plan I had that was 398.00 a month for my family only increased to 1400.00 a month in 2014
So I chose not to pay 1400.00 a month
So got a nice little fine
Thanks for the affordable care act.
Thanks for making it so affordable!!

By the way calling this tax an "Unshared Responsibility Payment" is ridiculous! Those Obama bureaucrats really know how to use a euphemism. Why not just say it's a tax since that is what they argued it was before the Supreme Court of the United States? That was of course well after Obama said during the reelection campaign and during the ramp up to passage of the bill that it wasn't a tax.
Here is Obama in 2009 insisting that it is not a tax:
Here is Obama's Solicitor General arguing on behalf of Obama that Obamacare is indeed a tax:
