    So--the next tactic of the Tea Party is to refuse to buy health insurance

    The government can't possibly put all you patriotic americans in jail, right?

    What really bothers me is that THIS can happen. I doubt it will be the norm, but if some of us were to either be unable to comply or refuse to comply we could end up in prison for this.

    Currently, I have health insurance and I have every intention of maintaining that status as long as I can, but if my employer suddenly decides that he will not continue to pay for my coverage and decides instead to pay the 8% penalty, I simply do not know that I can afford the cost of health insurance.

    Which means that I would be subject to arrest because I can't afford insurance... jeez, I thought debtor prison was unconstitutional in and of itself.
