"Americans would be fined up to $3,800 for failing to buy health insurance under a plan that circulated in Congress on Tuesday as divisions among Democrats undercut President Barack Obama's effort to regain traction on his health care overhaul."
Are we now on a plantation? Or is the Chicago Democrat setting up a protection racket?
This morning when I clicked on the link I found that the story had been changed. The subject of the original first paragraph had been moved down the page and rewritten.
"One provision would fine families up to $3,800 for failing to buy health insurance, essentially requiring that everyone have medical coverage, much like the case with car insurance. Obama rejected a mandate, and fines, during his presidential campaign."
Oh, they were only thinking about it, but they decided not to do it. (Or have they?)
They should not have been thinking about it at all.
What do they, both in our so-called government and in the mainstream media, think we are? A bunch of mindless animals?
I'll update this story as circumstances require.
