US Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (TX-D): Obamacare Penalty for Not Buying Insurance Isn’t Penalty ‘Because Penalty is Punishment’ … It’s an Incentive


How are some of these ignorant US Reps continually elected to office … Enter Sheila Jackson Lee.

Once again US Representative Sheila Jackson Lee provides of with more pearls of wisdom. Lee stated that the Obamacare penalty for not purchasing Obamacare is not really a penalty. The clueless one went on to say that a penalty is a punishment, the Obamacare penalty is instead an incentive. YIKES. So a fine for not doing something is not a penalty, but instead an incentive. Who knew? Maybe the voters of her district is Texas will have the incentive to vote to fool out of office.

This is a must see Video to be believed.


Does Sheila Jackson Lee really believe the BS she is spewing?

The law itself states: “If an applicable individual fails to meet the requirement of subsection (a) [having a government-approved health-insurance policy]… there is hereby imposed a penalty with respect to the individual.”

Elsewhere, in a section entitled “Payment of Penalty,” it says that individuals failing to carry a government-approved health insurance policy must pay a maximum penalty of $750.

In Rep. Jackson-Lee’s view, however, this language does not actually impose a penalty.

As Weasel Zippers stated, should we expect anything coherent from Sheila Jackson Lee as she is the same person who called Rush Limbaugh a racist when he called MSNBC host Ed Schultz, “Sergeant Schultz.” Thanks to Michelle Malkin, we are provided with the definition of “penalty” and “idiot”.

      The same SJL who took to the floor of the House and called the Pepsi ad demeaning and asserted and North and South Vietnam were living side by side in harmony.

      She is a joke — too bad her constituents don’t know that she is the laughing stock of the US Congress. Considering all the idiot in that austere body, she is certainly among the top!

      Having known this idiot from the time she was on the Houston City Council, I am not suprised at what she might say.

      More than likley one of her aids told her that Barry said it was a good statement.
