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


Welcome to Obama’s America. The Joint Committee on Taxation released a letter saying that if you, a free American with rights to not purchase something if you want, would be fined if you do not purchase health insurance. If you fail to pay the fine, you would go to jail. This is not a joke my friends. This is in the bill. Speaker Pelosi decided to keep it in even though the Senate Finance Committee removed this provision. Are you prepared to be forced to pay $15,000 per year for government health insurance? Not me.

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.

In response to the JCT letter, Camp said:  “This is the ultimate example of the Democrats’ command-and-control style of governing – buy what we tell you or go to jail.  It is outrageous and it should be stopped immediately.”

Key excerpts from the JCT letter appear below:

H.R. 3962 provides that an individual (or a husband and wife in the case of a joint return) who does not, at any time during the taxable year, maintain acceptable health insurance coverage for himself or herself and each of his or her qualifying children is subject to an additional tax.” [page 1]
