Obama Won’t Rule Out Jail Time for People Who Don’t Buy Government Insurance

Just as I and so many others have said. We weren’t making this up, folks, we READ the bill.

“There’s nothing wrong with a penalty.”

“If you have the ability to buy insurance and it’s affordable and you choose not do do so forcing you and me and everybody else to subsidize you …”

Wow, an answer to a problem the Obama administration created just for the sake of the answer. Um – why do we HAVE to subsidize ANYONE? Why does this administration want to force hard-working middle-class families to pay for more mouths than the ones they created?

Where does the line stop? People not getting insurance won’t be the only thing affecting what we all pay, diet, exercise, et al. all contribute. When will the fines start for not eating the government-approved diet? If we can be fined for not “choosing” the “right to free health care bills,” as our president just said because we will become a a burden to the system, then we can be fined for not eating a good diet because that’s a burden to the system, too.

And what will happen to the children of those families who refuse the forced, sub-par, government care? When will DFS bust in to those homes and remove the children on the grounds of neglect or abuse? People don’t realize that establishing a precedence isn’t the same as slippery slope.


Political Punch:

The President said that he didn’t think the question over the appropriateness of possible jail time is the “biggest question” the House and Senate are facing right now.
