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.

  1. The working poor once again will be victimized by this.
    Also the poor who don’t quite qualify for medical assistance.
    This is more than heartless, this is criminal.
