    Oh oh rbell, you are now a candidate for the "fishy" snitch website (oops, I mean the realitycheck website).

    They may also "call you out" to the White House Woodshed for a Chicago style beating.

    According to the article these are not penalties for not buying health insurance(private or public) but for not paying the fine for failing to buy health insurance(private or public).

    I am opposed to any government involvement in health care whatsoever. And I doubt that any of these proposals make it all the way through both houses of Congress. I certainly hope that none of them do so.

    A distinction without a difference.

    I don't trust politico.com to confirm the temperature outside their office much less this story. :laugh:

    But as Mike posted in the comments at 2:45 PM: Cool... Jail = FREE MEDICAL

    The insurance requirement provision is one of a few points of the healthcare reform I don't care for in this bill. Of course I don't believe the federal gov't should mandate any levels of insurance. It should be a state issue. I still think this is a provision that will get scrapped in the conference committee...but I've been wrong before...:tonofbricks:
