Many of you are already aware of this, but I have not yet mentioned it here. And it should not only be mentioned but opposed with all the strength we can muster. The House Obamacare bill passed Saturday night, with the approval of my congressman Solobama Ortiz, has prison for those who refuse to submit.
Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee Dave Camp (R-MI) released a letter from the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) confirming that the failure to comply with the individual mandate to buy health insurance contained in the Pelosi health care bill (H.R. 3962, as amended) could land people in jail. The JCT letter makes clear that Americans who do not maintain “acceptable health insurance coverage” and who choose not to pay the bill’s new individual mandate tax (generally 2.5% of income), are subject to numerous civil and criminal penalties, including criminal fines of up to $250,000 and imprisonment of up to five years.
To their credit, even some Lefties are appalled at this provision.
Democrats, your jackboots are showing.
