Get Insurance or Pay Tax

As part of the new health care bill approved by the House on Saturday night, on provision reads:

H.R. 3962 provides that an individual (or a husband and wife in the case of a joint return) who does not, at any time during the taxable year, maintain acceptable health insurance coverage for himself or herself and each of his or her qualifying children is subject to an additional tax.” [page 1]

As an American, I am insulted.  If I do not want to by health insurance, the government should not make me buy it.  This is another example of the fascist socialism of the Obama Administration.

What is next?  Exercise 30 minutes every day or face fines (each citizen will be fitted with a pedometer)?  Eat a vegan diet or face increased health care premiums?  Only drive 100 miles per week or pay 3 times the listed rat for gasoline?  All these could come when the government believes it can tax inaction on your part.
