Jail for not buying health insurance or paying the fine.

Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) received a note from Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold stating that under section 7203 people who failed to pay the up to $1,900 fee for not buying health insurance would be charged with a misdemeanor and could face up to a year in jail or a $25,000 penalty.

The Politico and others are acting as if this is surprising.  It is not.  Jail at the point of a gun is the final “argument” from the government.

Our freedom slipping away day by day.  Loss of freedom for any reason, even one that some say is a ‘good cause’ is evil.
