SEARCH BLOG: HEALTH CARE
The Democratic Party was busy this weekend trying to push through the Senate version of the Health Care bill that has ignited the passions of those who would actually have to pay for the free ride it offers.
So, just to be fair, Sen. Harry Reid made sure that there would be a tax penalty for not having insurance, unless you get the free ride... and don't pay taxes... and are already a burden on the rest of the social support system.
From Keith Hennessy via several sources:It only seems unfair if you are a working class American who believes in choice. If you are a Democratic Party politician who is looking for more votes, it seems quite fair... and even more fair right after the amnesty program and automatic citizenship process are implemented.
Reid bill: 16M uninsured U.S. citizens pay a penalty tax. 8M uninsured illegal aliens do not.
Under Leader Reid’s amendment, in the year 2019 about 16 million U.S. citizens would be uninsured and be forced to pay a penalty tax of almost $800 per year. About eight million illegal aliens would be uninsured and would owe no penalty tax. Both groups would get their health care through a combination of out-of-pocket spending and use of uncompensated care in emergency rooms and free health clinics.
This seems unfair.
