So far it has only had positive impacts on me personally. I think it is too early to tell what real impacts it will have and what is being said.


So far this has only had a negative impact on me. Since ObamaCare passed, I have lost my ability to use my Flex spending account in the way I used to thus causing many of those purchases to now be considered taxable. So one thing it has done is increased my taxes. Also my premiums have skyrocketed since the approval of ObamaCare. It is a real problem for me.


It's going to hurt a lot of people who pay taxes. If it is such a great thing, why was it passed in the middle of the night Christmas eve and nobody actually read what they were voting for. It was voted for only by democrats, who want a single payer healthcare system. It's going to hurt people whose working hours are going to be cut to 30 hours a week. All of the exemptions are a disgrace. Just wait until all of those who have insurance will be taxed as income on the value of the cost. It's been reported that this bill is going to leave 30 million uninsured and the young people they need to support the costs aren't going to sign up, they are going to pay the penalty. So that means the people who pay taxes are going to be forced to pay for it.
