In 2008 the uninsured were needy, desperate, dying...and ignored by society. In 2010they will be criminals.
Anyone making over 150% of the poverty level will be required to buy health insurance. The fine for not doing so will be $100.00 per day. Should you fail to pay your fines, it becomes a misdemeanor with a fine of $25k and/or a year in jail. If you fail to pay THAT...it becomes a felony with a fine of $250k AND five years in jail.
The last time I checked....150% of the poverty level was still poverty.
Is this the hope and change you wished for?
