PELOSI: Buy a $15,000 Policy or Go to Jail
http://republicans.waysandmeans.house.gov ^

Posted on 11/06/2009 4:04:23 PM PST by Typical_Whitey

Today, Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee Dave Camp (R-MI) released a letter from the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) confirming that the failure to comply with the individual mandate to buy health insurance contained in the Pelosi health care bill (H.R. 3962, as amended) could land people in jail. The JCT letter makes clear that Americans who do not maintain “acceptable health insurance coverage” and who choose not to pay the bill’s new individual mandate tax (generally 2.5% of income), are subject to numerous civil and criminal penalties, including criminal fines of up to $250,000 and imprisonment of up to five years.

In response to the JCT letter, Camp said: “This is the ultimate example of the Democrats’ command-and-control style of governing – buy what we tell you or go to jail. It is outrageous and it should be stopped immediately.”

Key excerpts from the JCT letter appear below:

“H.R. 3962 provides that an individual (or a husband and wife in the case of a joint return) who does not, at any time during the taxable year, maintain acceptable health insurance coverage for himself or herself and each of his or her qualifying children is subject to an additional tax.” [page 1]

“If the government determines that the taxpayer’s unpaid tax liability results from willful behavior, the following penalties could apply…” [page 2]

- - - - - - - - - -

“Criminal penalties

Unconstitutional, Unfathomable. Where are the civil libertarians when you really need them. ACLU should be up in arms about the shear intrusion of government on private persons....

So this is what the Pelosi Democrats call health care “reform”: buy an insurance policy, or go to jail.

OK
so I cannot afford to pay for a plan so I get fined

but I have no money otherwise I would have bought a plan

so they fine me more

still have no money so now they send me to jail

Now I get free health care in jail

The left have gone completely nuts they support bills they do not read, the voters for them vote for those who do not read bills and then they come out wit this mess and say it is good and then left sheep follow blindly again

From Pelosi’s point of view, the government-provided health care is a way to redistribute wealth, just like tax. Only in this case, the ‘tax’ is earmarked beforehand. Just like tax, anyone who doesn’t pay (or in this case, participate) will be subject to punishment. Unless you are a Black Congressman from NY, of course.

Lets see how much of this is reported on the MSM

Also, on Drudge there’s a line regarding we need your vote now, or this bill won’t ever make it.

This is coupled with the promise that things can change later.

Reminds me of the old union line, join us now, because if you don’t like us you have the right to get rid of us.

That rarely happens.....

I’ve said this before, I believe this big push now (and note it is written as a “tax”), is from those behind closed doors meetings, now around a year and half ago, with Paulson and the so called “bankers.” Millons of hard working real US citizens losing jobs, 401s dropped, and note AIG , .....but the beltway Bolsheviks haven’t sacrificed along with the rest of the population. They aren’t getting sufficient revenue. And how much was lost from their managers invested in MBSs and bank bonds through insurance investments?? Also note the wording “acceptable” level of insurance coverage. In other words, they can keep raising the bar of “acceptable” to cover their at risk pensions and salaries, at the expense of everyone else, CONTINUALLY.
From the above so called “bill”, it’s time that the conversation changes to what these insiders really are....predators. Predator Government.
