The phrase, “Freedom isn’t free” takes on a new meaning when considering the “penalty” imposed for non-compliance to the Obamacare healthcare mandate. The facts presented in this article should alarm every American that values our Constitution and Religious Liberty.
“Refusal to violate your faith will cost you.
The HHS mandate requires that all employer health insurance plans cover abortion pills—that the employer must, under penalty of law, pay for the abortion pills of its employees.
According to federal law, the penalty for failure to provide this coverage is “$100 for each day in the noncompliance period with respect to each individual to whom such failure relate.”
That’s $100 a day, per employee, per year.
Needless to say, this is a penalty that adds up quickly.
For example, a business with 100 employees would face a fine of $3.65 million dollars a year for refusing to violate one’s faith.
To put this in perspective, consider this. A violation of Obamacare’s employer mandate, which requires all employers of more that 50 employees to provide health insurance for those employees, is limited under federal law to $2,000 per employee and excludes the first 30 employees from the calculation.
So in the same example as above, if the employer chose not to provide any insurance for his or her 100 employees, the fine would be $140,000 a year.”
