It is a TAX only if you don't have Health insurance
The first comment I heard from someone across from me in a cube (a smart young lady with a college degree) was "great, another tax".
It isn't a new tax on people for Health Care!
There is ONLY a tax penalty IF you don't have Health Insurance. She (and most everyone else at my company) have Health Insurance through work. So the pro-Health Care message has to be that there is no penalty for currently insured people (including Medicare, Medicad, etc.). People are only taxed if they DON'T have Health Care.
I see the spin coming a like a twister...
