Could go to jail for failure to buy health insurance

Go to Jail, Go Directly to Jailgo to jail 6

I had wondered how this requirement to buy health insurance would be enforced.  Well, here it is.  First, you can be fined.  If the fine is not paid, the penalty for that could be jail –  $25,000 or a year in jail.

This is the misdemeanor charge.  If it happened to be charged as a felony, it would go to $100,000 or 5 years in jail.

Americans who fail to pay the penalty for not buying insurance would face legal action from the Internal Revenue Service, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation.

There  you have it.  This is the federal government providing health care for all citizens.  All the heck they are doing is making it against the law not to buy health insurance. And who will be in court for this? Probably the people who at this time do not have health insurance. Because if they can’t afford it now, they won’t be able to afford it if this is passed. Making criminals and tax evaders out of struggling Americans. Outrageous.
