Go To Jail, Go Directly To Jail
It has been confirmed. If you do not buy insurance under ObamaCare you may go to jail, go directly to jail, do not pass go, and do not collect $200. And there you have it. It’s as simple as a game of Monopoly. Follow the rules of the “Chance” cards which are drafted by individuals who are not fit to sell you a board game let alone a healthcare bill that will control one sixth of the US economy and irreversibly alter the course of this country, or else.
Senator John Ensign requested confirmation of the penalty for failing to purchase insurance under the proposed healthcare plan and learned that violators could face up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $25,000 (a whole lot more than the penalty charged to get out of jail in the Monopoly game!) I’m guessing that penalty will not apply to the indigent and illegal aliens who will likely never go to jail, and who will assuredly pass go, and collect a whole lot more than $200 – including free healthcare just for being a contestant in the wonderful world of Obamopoly.
Last week, Obama provided us with the untruth that the individual mandate penalty of $1900 is not a tax increase. But if it is not a tax increase, how can the IRS enforce it with the threat of jail or fine? In Obama’s world of fun and games, I suppose anything goes, but I for one have no desire to take my “Chance.”
