Posted on 11/07/2009 10:48:59 AM PST by Mobile Vulgus
It has come to this, America. Democrats have decided that if you don't agree with their policies, you are to be fined. And if you don't pay the fine, you are a criminal and will be sentenced to jail. That's right, Democrats are criminalizing dissent.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has decided to leave language in her heatlhcare bill that criminalizes and prescribes jail time for any American that does not want to buy private healthcare insurance. Think of this, America. I am telling you that the U.S. Congress has decided to force you to buy the product of a privately owned corporation! The power of the U.S. federal government has never been used to purchase something from a private company but here comes San Fran Nancy to do just that. But, let's face it. She is only taking her cue from the big guy and his "Chicago way" sort of political thuggery.
The Joint Committee on Taxation issued a letter (Download pdf file) in reply to Representative Dave Crump's inquiry about the matter of the criminal penalties of refusing to buy healthcare insurance should Pelosi's version of Obamacare pass.

Once this is passed they will go a step further. Every aspect of our lives will be controlled.
The people voted for change. And they are getting it -- good and hard.
How’s that “hopeychangey” thing working out for ya???
If this passes I believe we will see many bad things in our nation’s future. Violence, underground economies, super-corruption from government.
Hmmmmm....like the Soviet Union!
This is nothing less than a Marxist takeover of our Constitutional republic.
We would then become felons, no longer allowed to vote or legally own any firearms.
Step by step they are usurping the constitution, taking power that will be nearly impossible to rein in. Most Americans are asleep at the switch though. True nightmares will be preferable to the reality they will find when they finally wake-up.
This just might be the straw that broke the camels back.
“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say goodbye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand. The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst; the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!”

Sell private health insurance and go to jail.
Buy private health insurance and go to jail.
Welcome to the USSA, comrade.
Yes - nothing like the inept, irresponsible, impotent, pathetic Congress telling you to buy something or else you can pay a fine and/or go to jail.
Thanks, Jay Inslee! We will campaign against you next year.
Pesosi, Reed, and the rest of the vermin have their own free 5 star health insurance, immune to the expensive crap coverage they seek to mandate you and your loved ones.
The so-called 'Constitutional right to privacy' says I can decide what I do with 'my own body.'
The 'right to privacy' doesn't give me the right to refuse health care?
The US Constitution is not in effect. You are a slave. Any other questions?
What - something wrong with that? /s
This Congress is stealing our freedom and liberty. Time to push back!
These Democrats are a bunch of power-crazed fascists. Especially Queen Nancy and Queen Bawney.
That was required reading in my High School way back when. The teacher wanted to make sure that we understood the danger of the State. Remarkable that now kids aren’t even capable of reading much less understanding the story.
