    Again with liberals. Do you go to their meetings? Perhaps you could invite me next time you go?

    And I see no evidence it would kill off anything. Again, I see that as just hyperbolic paranoia, little more.

    Now, do you want the entire answer, or just what you think is the trick part?

    They don't go to jail for not having insurance. Same with all taxes and fines. But the offense one would go to jail for is not paying the tax/fine. Not for not having insurance. There is no jail penalty for not having insurance. You have to commit another offense in order to go to jail.

    And no, separating things that are separate is being factual.
    So you're either damned if you do (pay through the nose in insurance premiums) or damned if you don't (get sent to the pokey for not ponying up the dough at tax time). Either way it sucks big time!

    There's a third option: poney up the dough at tax time.

    What happens if a person cannot pay that "tax"/fine? IE the "tax"/fine doesn't get paid.

    Same as any other time. The IRS will work with you; I know from experience. You don't have to go to jail.

    Horsesh!t!! The only thing the "public option" is designed to do is to get that proverbial "foot in the door" to totally socialized medicine! Not to mention that big daddy gubment, once they get into this racket, can, and will undercut any private insurance company into the ground!

    I'm open to any factual and objective evidence you have. But just yelling horsesh!t!! isn't very convincing. You know the CBO said it wouldn't, don't you?

    If it is deemed unconstitutional then the courts can nullify that part of the bill. Congress cannot stop this.

    The difference between the military and you and I is that you join the military voluntarily. Which means you follow their rules voluntarily. We do not join life voluntarily. We are mandated to have health insurance from the day that we are born with the passing of this bill.
