    I wonder if all those unemployed people who voted for Obama and thought they were going to get free health insurance now fear being thrown in jail for not having any. They have no job and struggle to keep their homes and now Obama demands they get health insurance that they can't afford? What if they have to decide between paying for health insurance and paying the mortgage? How can anyone make that decision when losing their home to avoid jail means that there kids won't have a place to stay. I think a lot of people will opt to break the law in order to make sure that there kids have a home. This means a lot of good parents who simply can't afford health insurance are going to be put in jail simply because they want to keep a roof over there children's head.

    How compassionate is this policy going to be when enacted when people opt to go to jail simply because they chose to keep paying their mortgage?

    Has anyone wondered what would happen to the home when a working parent is in jail?

    Wow...are you really THIS uninformed when it comes to healthcare reform? Or just this completely STUPID? Do not ask questions about complex issues you are too lazy and/or stupid to understand. It just makes you look like a partisan hack.

    He maybe really that stupid. I tend to think he's simply a troll, willfully ignorant and of dull normal intelligence (measured by his inablity to even parrot talking points well).
    Of course I may be giving him too much credit.

    It scares me more to think ANYONE could actually be THIS uninformed on the topic at this point. If he were just a troll, that is one thing...but, come on, people!

    "Under the House bill those who can afford to buy insurance and don’t’ pay a fine. If the refuse to pay that fine there’s a threat – as with a lot of tax fines – of jail time."
    Interview with the President: Jail Time for Those without Health Care Insurance? - Political Punch


    Can you force those who choose not to be insured to get health insurance?
    “Even in good times, many Americans drive without insurance. The Insurance Research Council's previous study, released in 2006, found that nearly 15% of drivers nationally were uninsured in 2004, up from about 13% in 1999. In some states, including Mississippi, California and Arizona, roughly a quarter of drivers weren't insured.”
    And this is even though auto insurance is required in 48 states, costs less than health insurance, and jail time is possible!

    So, purchasing medications vs eating is a plausible scenario, but forced purchase of health insurance vs paying one's mortgage isn't?

    Amusing.
