You - all you have is a weak analogy to prop up your partisan argument.
Penalties for BREAKING laws are supposed to require a trial, not a simple presumtion of guilt and passing a sentence; this is EXACTLY what the insurance mandate does. The PPACA law requires us to do something new, using our own money no less. What CRIME have I comitted, by simply paying cash for my own medical care, that I should be fined for? Under MY fifth amendment right, against self incrimination, I will NOT file a federal tax return, so as to avoid the PPACA "conviction" and fine.
