Health Care Penalty – Jail Time … so be it

Nancy Skinner is a Democratic Strategist and I now Democrats are warm and fuzzy. They care. That’s why they get elected.But tell me please, how is sending someone to jail because they choose not to buy health insurance warm and fuzzy? This is the party of the people.

First the proposed piece of legislation:

There’s a popular video circulating on the ‘net right now about how to escape handcuffs without using a key. Americans are watching the video to bone up on essential skills that will soon be needed for health care reform, it seems, since the new laws that are about to be put in place call for Americans to be arrested and thrown in jail if they refuse to buy health insurance.

This has now been confirmed by Tom Barthold, the Chief of Staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation. And it’s not merely about jail time; it’s also about the $25,000 fine that could be levied by the IRS against individuals who refuse to buy health insurance.

Skinner says its appropriate … Cavuto says, “You’re crazy.”
