This ought to frighten every right thinking American (h/t Althouse):

"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.”

  1. You have no idea what you are talking about!
    We, in America, have no idea what we want. We vascillate back and forth like waves in tbhe ocean....Right, left what ever the demagogues say we believe and as for the religious fanatics of the "Christian Jihad" you would love to see us all dead!
    Let the healthcafre alone, let the events unravel; you might be pleasantly surprised. Just remember ita took almost thirty years for Reagan's doctrine to destroy our economy, and bush and his co-cospirators gave our system of government the "coup de grace"
