FINED! For not getting Health Care

Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont. (in my opinion drinks the same crazy juice drink as Michelle Bachman ) who as chairman of the Senate Finance Committee is leading talks among the “Gang of Six” senators to hammer out a bipartisan compromise, offered what he described on Tuesday as a “framework” and not a “final product.”

Damn right better not be the final product, people are going to be pissed when they hear this one.

The “framework”, it seems includes what amounts to a no-choice option. It would make health insurance mandatory, like auto insurance.

Grrrrreeaaattt who votes for these people?

So what does this fabulous plan framework say:

The plan would provide tax credits to help small employers and help cover the cost for households making up to three times the federal poverty level. That’s about $66,000 for a family of four, and $32,000 for an individual.

Those who still don’t sign up would face hefty fines, starting at $750 a year for individuals and $1,500 for families — for those making up to three times the poverty level.

For those who make more than that, the penalty on individuals would jump to $950 and the penalty on families would jump to $3,800.

To that, I say – please dont speak again until you are reading off a authorized teleprompter speech.
