Health Care Bill Could Jail People Who Do Not Comply

PELOSI: Buy a $15,000 Policy or Go to Jail

JCT Confirms Failure to Comply with Democrats’ Mandate Can Lead to 5 Years in Jail

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.

has anyone bothered to figure out what percentage they are paying now?

Lets say you make um $5000 a week times 2.5%. Is that $125 a week.

If you make um $500 a week times 2.5% that would be what $12.50.

I guess I missed the point.

Nancy Pelosi is a Socialist Pig!

Soon enough the government will control all aspects of our life, and we'll comply or be locked up.

Free country my *ss!

one sided blog. Oh yeah, lets keep letting insurance companies make billions on the lives of Americans.

Atleast insurance companies don't throw you in jail for not purchasing their policies!

Big difference my friend.

Yeah, you're right the insurance companies make a ton of money..so while we're at it, since Microsoft makes so much money, and Time Warner, lets go ahead and take over their companies too, and let the government run all of our lives.

Sorry, but that argument holds no water. It doesn't matter how much the insurance companies are making (and don't forget the rest of the medical field, pharmaceutical co.'s etc.), what matters is that our government is forcing us each day to give up more rights as they levy more laws and restrictions on us.

Enough is enough this has to stop somewhere.

We're doomed.

No one can see through the BS and see the reality behind this entire "health reform" movement.

This is just another way for the government to funnel our hard earned money to the corporate pigs that pad their pockets by means of lobbyists and the like.

Now, if you do not pay you'll be imprisoned and forced to more even more for it.

Mr. Corporation has Uncle Sam wrapped around his greedy little finger, and no one seems to care/realize it.

Wake up people!

If you make $500/week, the 2.5% tax is about $55/month.

Keep in mind, this is not a substitute for carrying insurance. This is just to cover insurance for people who cannot afford it. You are still required to get your own if you work under penalty of a fine (~$2,000/yr) if you choose not to.

It may not seem like much, but many people don't have much expendable income after taxes and bills and 2.5% is a lot of what is left.

Even with the new tax the bill still isn't fully paid for. We are going to borrow what is left (at least another $250 billion/year) to pay for the rest.

The government wonders why people are committing mass shootings in the United States recently. The government is pinching our pockets to the extreme, in return people are furious and they result in killing others go figure.

Here we go again. Another 2.5% tax added to the rest of them. That tax will never go away or down. from this point on the working person is screwed even harder. Hope this is the "Change" the majority wanted from the Obama camp.

Yes You Can said...

"I love you Nancy will you marry me?"...you better hope she says yes because pretty soon the politicians will be the only ones with any jobs and or money! Hope you are not allegoric to silicone cause she is full of it, look at her face!

"I vote yes for health care reform"
I hope you can afford it because our children, their children and their children will have a very large debt do to this administration.

Each and every one that voted "Yes" will not be re-elected, they better vote they get to keep their insurance coverage as it is or they will be taxed to high heaven like the rest of us.

Do you honestly think this will apply to their coverage or their income?

Keep chasing your tail people. Day by Day you get less free, you pay more and more and your dollar is worth less and less.

Agrue all you want about about which party is "better" IT WILL NOT CHANGE until you come out of the matrix.

12:20 We sat back with our mouths shut and watched your president spend 8 years destroying this country at home and abroad. We are spending $12,000,000,000 per month in Iraq fighting some ridiculous war he got us into whom everyone including the troops thinks was a mistake. You all keep talking about spending and taxes. Do you think maybe we could use the $864,000,000,000 a little more than the Iraqis right now???

Note to all college students: If that guy you saw at the party doing the naked keg stands and then later passed out under kitchen sink ever runs for president don't vote for him.

Kept your mouth shut?

I do not think so!

Furthermore you got the change you voted for, why aren't the troops home? Weren't there headed home the first 100 days?

Why is Gitmo still open? Was it not going to be shut down in the first 100 days? If the troops came home like Obama promised I guess the spending on the war would be over! Guess Obama does not mind continuing to spend money on it or he would do something about it!

Well it has been the first of four years, how bout that change?! We got change all right, printed money when we did not have enough to bail out wall street and banks why wasn't the money put back into social security the Fed's took from for years?

Unified health care will end up just like the postal system and social security, both broke and costing all of us TAX PAYERS tons of money. Did you ever wonder why the USPS spends so much money (millions annually) on advertising? I sure have, what the heck is up with that? How many places can you have a mail box, buy stamps and mail the letter at the same time?! IDIOTS!

The only ones not worked up about this "change" are the low life lazy people that would not work a day in their lives to help themselves because they don't have to, we do that for them as well!
