Health care insurance could be too costly even after reform? Why, gee whiz. Hasn't America been saying that? Penalties are appropriate says the Prez. Will that include jail time? Hard to say.
He tried to suggest the penalty for not having health insurance was similar to that of auto insurance mandates. When was the last time you knew anyone who had to go to jail, or was even threatened, for not having auto insurance? Hmmmm.
Well, at least the new taxes proposed by the current health care bill won't be hidden. We'll all see them taken out of our paychecks years before the "affordable" healthcare kicks in!
