In a sudden reversal, Majority Leader Harry Reid has moved to begin Senate debate on Pelosi-Care on Tuesday... and according to Pelosi-Care, if you refuse to buy a Pelosi-approved health care plan... you could go to jail.
Can it be true? Will you be forced to purchase an Obama-Pelosi-approved health care plan... a plan that will ration care to our elderly... a plan that will give you fewer choices... a plan that will lower the quality of care you receive... at a bare-minimum of 15,000 dollars a year, or go to jail?
You better believe it... under Pelosi-Care (the evil spawn of ObamaCare) you will be forced to accept an Obama-Pelosi-approved health care plan or risk penalties as severe as fines of up to 250,000 dollars or jail time of up to five years.
Congressman Dave Camp, the Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee just issued a shocking press release which outlines the findings of the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) on Pelosi-Care.
And the content of this JCT analysis is chilling.
According to the JCT analysis, you could face a fine of up to 2.5 percent of your income (collected by the IRS, of course) if you fail to maintain â€œacceptable health insurance coverage.â€
And refusal to pay the fine "is punishable by a fine of up to 250,000 and/or imprisonment of up to five years."
We couldn't make this up. Even Congressman Camp said: â€œThis is the ultimate example of the Democratsâ€™ command-and-control style of governing â€“ buy what we tell you or go to jail.â€
But that's not the half of it.
Reports from a few days ago, which claimed that so-called health care reforms wouldn't pass the Senate until next year were premature and erroneous.
In what amounts to a shocking reversal, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid just moved to sneak Pelosi-Care onto the Senate floor on Tuesday.
Damn the will of the American people... full-speed ahead. These extreme liberals in Congress intend to ram their so-called "health care reforms" down our throats... whether we like it or not.
They're sneaking around... making behind-the-scenes deals... twisting arms... they think they can do the same thing in the Senate that they did in the House. They think that if they move quickly, they can pass their so-called "health care reforms" before anyone is any the wiser.
But thatâ€™s not going to happen. They won't get away with it because we're simply not going to let them get away with it.
