No Health Insurance? Hillary to Penalize

Nice. What’s next for the DNC and liberals? They want to force people to have health insurance. Can someone tell me what section of the U.S. Constitution gives the federal government the job of forcing us to buy health insurance?

In Health Debate, Clinton Remains Vague on Penalties

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton inched closer Sunday to explaining how she would enforce her proposal that everyone have health insurance, but declined to specify — as she has throughout the campaign — how she would penalize those who refuse.

Mrs. Clinton, who did not answer Senator Barack Obama’s question on the topic in a debate last Thursday, was pressed repeatedly to do so Sunday by George Stephanopoulos on the ABC program “This Week.” When Mr. Stephanopoulos asked a third time whether she would garnish people’s wages, Mrs. Clinton responded, “George, we will have an enforcement mechanism, whether it’s that or it’s some other mechanism through the tax system or automatic enrollments.”

What’s next? Are they going to penalize me for the Pepsi that I just got out of the vending machine simply because I did not want diet?

I guaranty you that if this plan sees the light of day, somehow it will not be fair for the poor Americans to be forced to buy health insurance. Therefore, if you’re in the bottom 20 percent of wage earners, you’ll be exempt from the mandate, but still get all the benefits. More entitlements. Yeah!

Can someone give me one example where the federal government forces you to by a product or service? The only one that I can think of is flood insurance – if you live in a flood plain.
