Obama Healthcare change you can believe in … Jail time!
Democrats complained that there were no death panels in the Obamacare healthcare bill. What about Obamacare throwing you in jail!
Just yet another reason why to never allow the US government to get involved with healthcare.
Unbelievable, does the United States still does have a Constitution? Americans who fail to pay the mandatory for not buying health insurance coverage under Obamacare would face legal action from the Internal Revenue Service. What on earth! Violators could face up to a year in jail or a $25,000 penalty.
The Joint Committee on Taxation later rejected an amendment submitted by Sen. Jim Bunning (R-Ky.) that would’ve eliminated the individual mandate.
Senator John Ensign (R-Nev.) questioned the Committee’s Chief of Staff, Thomas Barthold, about the penalty, arguing that many Americans don’t believe a mandate on the purchase of health insurance coverage is constitutional.
Senator John Ensign (R-Nev.) later received a handwritten note from Barthold that confirmed his concerns: people who fail to pay the $1,900 fee for not purchasing coverage under Obamacare would be charged with a misdemeanor, charged a penalty of up to $25,000 or face up to a year in jail.
Obamacare is out of control and makes less sense each passing day. The government will unleash the IRS on you, make you pay a fine and have you thrown in jail if you do not purchase their forced healthcare. This is still America, right?
Just curious America, how is Barack Obama going to claim that this $1500 fine is not a tax seeing that he will call out the IRS upon you if you do not follow Obamacare’s mandatory purchase of insurance? Flopping Aces is also curious how Obama will spin this latest lie.
Even though then Sen. Obama campaigned for office against a mandate, he’s on record supporting one now and claiming that it does not constitute a tax even though just about everyone else concedes it is a tax.
Hmm … the IRS deals with taxes, penalty for not paying the $1900 fine will be facing the IRS … therefore the $1900 is a tax!
Talk about some circular logic and yet another reason why Obamacare is nothing more than a farce and attempt to control you. If you don’t pay for mandated insurance you will be fined and thrown in jail. For the fine, you still receive no health insurance, thus you are out $1900 and still have no health insurance coverage. If thrown in jail, you are provided healthcare at a cost to the state and tax payers. Does anyone see an inconsistency here?
