Obama: Jail Time for Those without Health Care Insurance

• ABC News
President Obama said that penalties are appropriate for people who try to “free ride” the health care system but stopped short of endorsing the threat of jail time for those who refuse to pay a fine for not having insurance.

“What I think is appropriate is that in the same way that everybody has to get auto insurance and if you don't, you're subject to some penalty, that in this situation, if you have the ability to buy insurance, it's affordable and you choose not to do so, forcing you and me and everybody else to subsidize you, you know, there's a thousand dollar hidden tax that families all across America are -- are burdened by because of the fact that people don't have health insurance, you know, there's nothing wrong with a penalty.”

It's absolutely maddening to see that so many still think there's a difference between "the parties".  Who wins the "World Series" every time?  Major League Baseball.  Who wins the "SuperBowl" every year?  The National Football League.  And who wins the election, EVERY election, EVERY TIME? (Hint:  It ain't us.)

If you don't want to buy car insurance, all you have to do is not drive. If you don't want to buy "health insurance," what are you supposed to do, just die???

 This fascist bastard need to go back to whatever the hell rock he crawled out from under.

I want a real president.

How about Jail Time for this Illegal Imposter that has been found Guilty of FRAUD and TREASON by several Grand Juries ????  Barak Hussein Obama has been getting a FREE RIDE from OUR Tax Money and GRAND THEFT..  Now he is depriving families of their loved ones to get them out of the country so that he and his National Police Force can put Americans in his Concentration Camps.....GOD HELP US...
