    O'Reilly vs. Coburn: The Video Evidence (VIDEO)

    No, I don't read the Huffpo, I got this from another forum, BTF.

    Shit's good for some giggles.

    O'Reilly challenges Senator Coburn to name "just one" FOX personality that said you'd be jailed for not getting Health Insurance.

    He couldn't name any, and Bill said there aren't any, declared himself a winner.

    Then came the research by the opposition media.


    aaahahaha. Even on Bill's own show it was said. Oops! Good for a giggle.

    I didn't watch your silly clip, but I have heard O'Reilly and others say that if you fail to pay the fine instituted for failing to purchase health insurance you may go to jail. It's a bit different than saying if you don't buy health insurance you go to jail. Technically Bill was right.

    They CAN put you in jail if you don’t or can’t pay the health care mandate “penalty.” Here’s how:

    In the HC bill, the IRS is the enforcement arm, as you know. The IRS uses the TAX CODE to enforce this, and under the TAX CODE they CAN seize your wages, tax return, property and/or prosecute you and jail you for unpaid federal liabilities!

    Happens all the time.

    Therefore anyone saying they can jail you for not paying this “penalty” is absolutely correct! However if they say that’s IN THE HC BILL, they are really, technically wrong.

    Hope this clears the fog for you.

    But the penalty is that you don't receive a tax credit that those who purchased health insurance are all receiving, so if you went to jail it's because you didn't pay your regular taxes to begin with, not because you didn't buy health insurance. You can say it the other way but it sounds to me like an attempt to obfuscate things and fear monger.

    Wrong.

    Read the tax code.

    If you don't or can't pay this "penalty" they CAN prosecute you. Whether they will or not is up to the IRS, not Congress. Most likely they will seize your income tax return, and if there isn't one, they CAN go after your property. And if no property, they CAN prosecute and jail you.

    Exactly as if you didn't pay your taxes.

    However the most likely scenario is, they will let you pay out your extra liabilities over several months. This is if you're cooperative.

    Generally the IRS tries really hard not to prosecute or do seizures.

    Hey, G.T.

    Pelosi herself, when questioned on this verified it and said it was "only fair."

    Which all has nothing to do with health insurance. The "penalty" is not receiving a CREDIT. So, by not receiving the CREDIT, you then either pay your original taxes owed, or you don't, but that's General Tax Law not "jail for not buying health insurance." <--that's an obfuscation.

    I don't get my research from an interview. She probably has no clue how the bill even works.

    No he wasn't. No one on the left ever suggested you might go to jail. This is the same as "death panels" and "kill grandma" and "socialism".

    Just more shit lies piled on more shit lies.

    Then Republicans look all dewy eyed and innocent, "Who me? It was all a very slight and inconsequential misunderstanding", when we all know, it's another white wing lie. It's what they do best. What they are good at.

    WRONG DUDE!!!

    Those receiving the CREDIT do NOT get the penalty!

    ONLY those who can afford health care insurance and DON'T BUY ANY get the "penalty."

    The Insurance companies are required under this new law to issue a form to the IRS verifying you have coverage. For those individuals they don't get the form on, whose income is high enough, they get flagged and fined.

    You don't understand this provision of the HC bill at all.
