I am referring to the recent Supreme Court ruling,it seems that some are afforded the right to choose all of their options about certain healthcare choices but all of us are required to pay a tax in order to have the right to choose all of our options, I am considering that one of my options should be to not have health care at all from any provider, and that right to choose should be just as free as the right to choose about a woman's reproductive health care choices.
Congress has the power to be able to tax under the Constitution. The Supreme Court has ruled that Obamacare is set up so that everyone must pay a healthcare tax, from which you can get an exemption if you purchase health insurance. I am not entirely convinced that the Supreme Court is correct on this issue.
A woman's right to choose whether or not to be pregnant has been determined to be a fundamental right which cannot be taken away by law, to a limited extent.
There has been no determination that you have a "right" to not have health insurance. However, there are still legal challenges to Obamacare which are being mounted, and this is one of the arguments involved. The debate is still very much ongoing and there is not a straight legal answer on the subject as of yet.
Sir, I am very much interested in this fight , I don't expect your legal input for free, I am interested in the terms of the service ya'll provide.I have never been aware of a tax that is not a percentage of some value. This appears to be a flat tax, which would penalize the poor more so than the wealthy. Can anyone explain what item of value it is that is being taxed and what percent of that value are we being required to pay?
Can you explain how the value of this tax is determined? At what income level do you begin recieving deductions,and who will be eligible for the entire amount being deducted? At what income level do you stop recieving any deduction and end up paying for health insurance and the tax?
Good morning Sir, I feel as if I'm beginning to know you, I and my partner are small business owners, we provide health care for our employees up to 250.00 dollars per month, so anyone under 40 it pays 100% but after that they have to start contributing because the rates are based on age, this does not pertain to my question, this is to let you know a little about myself. My question of the day is this: Do I have the legal ability to sue or petition ( whatever ya'll call it) the federal government for the Right to choose the type of health care I determine to persue, for example Holistic medicine, faith based healing practices,etc. and if so can I also sue for the right to use my health care dollars in persuit of my health care choices? Because we should have the freedom to choose for ourselves our own health care path based on religion or whatever freedoms of choice afforded to us by our constitution, I feel that they either need to let me choose for myself,and give me my health care dollars to persue my choices with, or they need to allow for every possibility that any citizen can choose as a form of health care. Is this thought process within any legal argument?
How would a person proceed from this point?
