10.2% Unemployed... will be forced to purchase Insurance

While Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid grin and gloat and continue to insist that they are going to shove provide Health Insurance Reform Health Care Reform through a Public Option Competitive Option for Americans because they have heard the cry for this reform from the minoritymajority of the country. Pelosi and company will make health insurance affordable for all… and to make sure everyone takes advantage of their benevolent efforts they have penned a little warning into their bill detailing the penalties awaiting those who might dare to not partake of their insurance gift:

• Section 7203 – misdemeanor willful failure to pay is punishable by a fine of up to $25,000 and/or imprisonment of up to one year.

• Section 7201 – felony willful evasion is punishable by a fine of up to $250,000 and/or imprisonment of up to five years.”

Hmmmm….

Maybe this helps explain the liberal’s push for all of those early release programs… They want to give a pass to those who have committed petty crimes like robbery and drug dealing to make room for the more dangerous and violent among us who don’t buy health insurance!

Oh… and home foreclosures are on the rise. According to a study conducted and released on October 15th by RealtyTrac (which compiles data on more than 90 percent of U.S. households), more than 925,000 borrowers received a foreclosure filing between July and September. That is up 23% from the comparable period last year. And car repossessions are on the rise too… as are the incidents of violence against those who show up to repossess said cars.

In the meantime, unemployment has reached 10.2%… people who are adding to the thousands of American’s our President tells us are losing their insurance coverage every day… 

“We’re not just talking about Americans in poverty, either – we’re talking about middle-class Americans. In other words, it can happen to anyone.”

Is this a promise or a threat?

Adding to this, America’s poverty rate increased to 13.2 percent last year… rising from the 12.5 percent of 2007. This means there were 39.8 million living in poverty in 2008, an increase of about 2.5 million from the previous year. And then there are those who are for the first time in their lives finding themselves standing in food lines. An increase of about 25% in the past year… Of course, the laps dogs in Obama Media aren’t willing to talk about that. You have to get that news flash fromthe English version of Al Jezeera’s  website.

Go figure.

According to Barack Obama, “The situation’s grown worse over the last 12 months.” (That would be the time since HE has been in office bringing all of that Hope and Change he promised) and he added,  “Its estimated that the ranks of the uninsured have swelled by at least 6 million.” 

Then there are the 16 to 26-year old Americans. Unemployment there is a bit higher in their group. 53.4% to be precise. They also make up the highest percentage of uninsured people in the country.

Thousands losing their jobs every day… increasing numbers of Americans losing their homes, their cars… and growing numbers of Americans living at poverty level and standing in food lines… and “the children”, (AKA: “the future”) unable to find a job… and on top of it all, every one of them will be forced to purchase insurance TOO… or pay a fine… AND/or go to jail…

Wait… Who were the ones the liberals keep saying this Health Insurance Reform Health Care Reform Public Option Competitive Option thingy is supposed to help?
