This is perfect:
"Tom, Dick and Harry rolled into the ER in ambulances and each was having a heart attack – Tom’s so poor he couldn’t afford to buy health insurance, Dick could almost afford it but not quite, and Harry could have afforded it but didn’t buy it.
Now there were millions of Tom, Dick and Harrys without insurance and they put a hole in the health care boat so both the Washington Democrats and the Washington Republicans went to studying the problem.
Obama came up with an answer first: He decided to give Tom free health care, give Dick a bit of money so he could buy insurance, and he gave Harry a choice: Harry could buy insurance or pay a tax"
In other words, the only people that will actually be subject this "tax" will be those that the government determines can afford it. Otherwise, all of the entitlement recipients, all of the lower-middle income people that do not now pay any federal tax in the first place will just get "pass" and, actually will be helped by government (oh, and let's make sure we ALL know that "government" is actually taxpayers) to obtain health insurance if they don't already have it.
Yeah...this is just SUCH a great plan. Nope...won't cost a cent extra for taxpayers. Like my grandson likes to say..."yeah, right".
