Up to Five Years in Jail for No Health Insurance, Under Pelosi Bill

The current version of the House health care reform bill (H.R. 3962, as of 11/07/2009) still subjects us to  the possibility (and we know what that means!) that individuals who "willfully" refuse to maintain health insurance can face an additional "tax" for which nonpayment thereof can result in criminal sanctions, i.e., "up to five years" in federal prison under Section 7203 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Crime, Politics and Policy reported on the threat of jail for not having the government-mandated health insurance in mid-September.   See our earlier report here

These health "reform" bills totally miss the mark.   The current "problem" is one of affordability, not necessarily one of access.   This nation can provide appropriate (defined as what you want, and what you need, as decided by you and only you) health care for everyone.    The problem is that the bill will only guarantee (or mandate) that everyone have health insurance.    But having health insurance does not equal having health care!   These bills only guarantee your right to pay insurance...not to receive any benefits.
