We all know the failed roll out of insurance exchanges, confusion about providers, misinformation and other challenges. In January 2015 enforcement of penalties will begin. While there are exemptions, which are loosely described there is no mention of other financial hardships (specific) such as disability or unusually high expenses precluding the payment of premiums. Penalizing those who still cannot afford Obamacare, despite it's misnomer as the "Affordable Care Act" is tyrannical, especially since those at risk are those who are in the least able to contest penalties. For them a trail of tax delinquency, levies, and possible liens and/or garnishments are real possibilities.
The reality is that the expense of 'enfnorcement' upon society will be considerable, as another 'white crime' appears in the lexicon of government legales.

The penalty related to the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act. This penalty will be applied to a taxpayer's return if anyone in their tax household does not have qualified health insurance or claim an appropriate exemption.
