    This doesn't happen often enough.

    Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) received a handwritten note Thursday from Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold confirming the penalty for failing to pay the up to $1,900 fee for not buying health insurance.

    Flout the mandate penalty? Face the IRS - Live Pulse - POLITICO.com



    Americans who fail to pay the penalty for not buying insurance would face legal action from the Internal Revenue Service, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation.

    The remarks Thursday from the committee's chief of staff, Thomas Barthold, seems to further weaken President Barack Obama's contention last week that the individual mandate penalty, which could go as high as $1,900, is not a tax increase.

    Under questioning from Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.), Barthold said the IRS would "take you to court and undertake normal collection proceedings."

    Ensign pursued the line of questioning because he said a lot of Americans don't believe the Constitution allows the government to mandate the purchase of insurance

    The same thing that happens right now as mandated by law. You will be given treatment at the taxpayers expense.

    Funny how the Democrats just won't come out and speak the truth on this matter.

    It's called a PENALTY. I am already paying a tax to pay for people who CHOOSE not to have health insurance. There is a difference and I am ALL for imposing this penalty on any who CHOOSE not to buy health insurance when they can afford to do it.
