Expanding Your Health Care Options: Obama Care or Jail!

The latest incarnation of that flaming bag of excrement (aka “Obama Care”) reduces the mandatory penalty for opting out of the system from $3800 to $1900.  It’s still crap, but in a smaller pile.  Yet, when one looks more closely at this reduction, there’s a funny little addition to the fine’s subtraction – failing to comply with the new government-mandated fine could also lead to a misdemeanor charge, a $25,000 IRS fine, or up to a year in prison!

So, possibly putting us in jail, fining us nearly twelve times more money than advertised, and giving us a criminal record, is ultimately what we get for Max Baucus “reducing” the $3800 fine in half.  HUH?!?   That sounds so poorly surreptitious that I almost wonder if this is a joke:  Baucus selling the plan as a cut in brand-new unnecessary fine, without mentioning that the consequences of not comply with that unnecessary fine are astronomically worse than previously stated.  Seriously?  Are we supposed to laugh or light up the torches?

Republican Senator John Ensign needed to squeeze this info out of the Joint Committee on Taxation just to bring it to light.  Sadly, Maine’s brighter RINO, Olympia Snowe, is apparently considering supporting this bill.   I’m sorry, but having any of Maine’s mentally deficient Senators support this should not be considered “bipartisan”; rather it should be incontrovertible proof that the whole bill is a bad idea!

The Obama Delusion: The belief that although President Obama is a liberal and has liberal values and goals, he cleverly pretends not to be a liberal in order to to fool Republicans into supporting his agenda

Comrade obama remains patently clueless about the wishes of the American people. His liberal and hopelessly bad ideas are going to ruin our country. His inability to make an executive decision, because of his constant campaign mode, has prompted the U.S. post office to direct all white house mail to “occupant” because there is NO seated president at this time.
