@theskafish,

They won’t take it out of your paycheck. People really wont have to pay anything until the beginning of 2015 when you file your 2014 taxes. At that time if you don’t have health insurance you will have to pay $95 dollars or 1% of your annual income, which ever is higher. (http://www.bizfilings.com/toolkit/news/tax-info/health-insurance-mandatory-beginning-2014.aspx and https://www.healthcare.gov/what-if-someone-doesnt-have-health-coverage-in-2014/)

I can accept failure, but I can’t accept not trying. Get as much information as you can on the issue and try to come to terms of understanding with proposed solutions. If that doesn’t work, think of and propose your own solutions. If you don’t like the way something is, you don’t have to succumb to it. You have the power to change anything, or at least try.
