Barb’s note: Forced health insurance, want it or not. Even if you don’t need it because you prefer alternative health options. Even if you disagree with traditional medicine for religious reasons, or simply understand that these people are doing just what they say – practicing on us. They don’t call it medical “practice” for nothing. What is next, forced vaccinations? Oh, they’re already doing that…

WASHINGTON (Map, News) –
Americans who refuse to buy affordable medical coverage could be hit with fines of more than $1,000 under a health care overhaul bill unveiled Thursday by key Senate Democrats looking to fulfill President Barack Obama’s top domestic priority.The Congressional Budget Office estimated the fines will raise around $36 billion over 10 years. Senate aides said the penalties would be modeled on the approach taken by Massachusetts, which now imposes a fine of about $1,000 a year on individuals who refuse to get coverage. Under the federal legislation, families would pay higher penalties than individuals.
